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 three of Jammin' 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 and in the full version available on iTunes.
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!
NOTE: The following lyrics are for the full iTunes versions of the song. In the in-game Music List version, the song ends at the fourth to last verse (third to last for the Japanese version) before looping back to the beginning.
* - 箱庭 (hakoniwa; lit. box garden): May refer to the sandbox-like gameplay seen in Super Mario Odyssey, Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine.
