Break Free (Lead the Way) (titled Honeylune Ridge: Escape in the Music List) is a song in Super Mario Odyssey. It is the second song with lyrics and plays in the last section of the escape sequence at the end of the game's story, as well as the ending cutscene. A version with Japanese vocals also exists, and an 8-bit version (without vocals) can be unlocked in the Music List after fulfilling at least two of Music Toad's requests.
The song also features arranged snippets of music from previous Mario games: halfway through the song, an electric guitar rendition of Bowser's theme from Super Mario 64 and the Bowser battle theme in the Cloud Kingdom can be heard, and the 25m theme from Donkey Kong can be heard in the variation heard during the ending cutscene.
It is performed by The Super Mario Players and it is sung by Kate Higgins (credited as Kate Davis) in English and Aimi Mukohara in Japanese, while being composed by Naoto Kubo, just like Jump Up, Super Star!
Smash through the blocks that bar your way
No time for fear just let it all fall away (all fall away)
Nobody believes in me and you, just look at the way they stare
So what if we live in a walled garden, as long as I've got you then I don't care
Kick off the wall and take the plunge
Tripping through 2 dimensions
Up on the moon we'll twirl and swoon
Just lead the way (and I'll follow you)
I'll throw my hat in the ring, 'cause you're the one
A miracle in three dimensions
Follow the brick path straight to my heart
And we'll grab the flag together the fireworks are gonna start
Shake off the chains, you're running free
You'll be amazed at all that there is to see (there is to see)
Together we're racing for the goal, and no one can stop us now
Maybe we don't know where we're going, but we're gonna get there somehow
Kanjo no burokku o kowashitara
Okubyo wa naraku no soko ni kieteitta (kieteitta)
Muri muda to kimetsukeru yatsura shirime ni
Hakoniwa na kirameku sekai de
Boku ra sodai na koi o shiyou
Keri ageta kono ashi de nijigen o matageba
Haneru kakeru mawaru tsuki o tayori ni (michibikarete)
Tsumi ageta taiseki ga sanjigen no kiseki ga
Yureru warau kimi no mune no hāto ni nabiku
Furaggu o tsukamu yo
Mirai e no purotto egaitara
Shingo wa suicchi ao e kawatteitta (hashiri dashita)
Kudokudo to tare nagasu kogoto fusaide sa
Harema nozoku kagayaku sekai e
Boku ra sodai na niji kakeyou
Suri hetta kono kutsu de chiheisen koereba
Haneru kakeru mawaru kaze o tayori ni (michibikarete)
Sabi darake kono fune de suiheisen koereba
Sugata katachi ima mo ukabu kimi no kokoro
Gōru o mezasu yo
Nokonoko to arawareta bokura no chansu ga
Hakoniwa na kirameku sekai de yori isso no hikari hanatsu
Kushakusha no sono kippu wo imakoso toridashiteyo
Boku ra kakeru yume no kotae dasu tabi (michibikarete)
Hurikazase sono ude wo sora takaku tsukiagero
Kowase koero sakebe konya boku ra kibo megakete Break Free!
I broke the blocks of emotion and
cowardice disappeared away into abyss (disappeared away).
Looking scornfully at the people who judge blindly "it's impossible," "it's futile,"
let us fall in a spectacular love in a world miniature gardens shine.
Striding over the two-dimensional with this foot kicked up,
I bounce, dash and revolve, trusting in the moon (guided).
The volume heaped up, the miracle of the three-dimensional
seizes the flag flattering on the heart of the chest of you that rock and smile.
I drew the plot to the future and
the traffic light switched into blue (begun to run).
Block the scolding being verbosely discharged and
let us make a bridge of spectacular rainbow to the glittering world where fair sky peeks.
Going over the horizon with these worn-thin shoes
I bounce, dash and revolve, trusting in the wind (guided).
Going over the horizon with this rusted ship
the heart of you, whose figure still comes to my mind.
I take aim to the goal.
Nonchalantly appeared our chance
casts more light in the world miniature gardens shine.
Now it's time, pull out that screwed up ticket
to answer the dream on which we run (guided).
Brandish your arm, thrust it up high into the sky.
Break! Go beyond! Shout! Tonight we aim for desire, Break Free!
