La canzone ufficiale dell'evento One Bilion Rising, intitolata significativamente Break the Chain, dove lo stesso concetto di presa in carico del proprio destino è ancora una volta raffigurato dal gesto del ballo, liberatorio e energetico. La danza rompe le regole, dice il testo, ed è vero: rompe anche quelle della comunicazione che vorrebbe le donne vittime piangenti su sè stesse, esseri autocommiseranti e fragili incapaci di invertire la propria storia se non interviene una forza esterna. La canzone è la base musicale del grande flash mob che si sta preparando per il 14 febbraio.

Michela Murgia
I raise my arms to the sky
On my knees I pray
I'm not afraid anymore
I will walk through that door
Walk, dance, rise
Walk, dance, rise

I can see a world where we all live
Safe and free from all oppression
No more rape or incest, or abuse
Women are not a possession

You've never owned me,
don't even know me
I'm not invisible,
I'm simply wonderful
I feel my heart for the first time racing
I feel alive, I feel so amazing

I dance cause I love
Dance cause I dream
Dance cause I've had enough
Dance to stop the screams
Dance to break the rules
Dance to stop the pain
Dance to turn it upside down
Its time to break the chain, oh yeah
Break the Chain
Dance, rise
Dance, rise

In the middle of this madness,
we will stand I know
there is a better world
Take your sisters & your brothers by the hand
Reach out to every woman & girl

This is my body, my body's holy
No more excuses, no more abuses
We are mothers, we are teachers,
We are beautiful, beautiful creatures

I dance cause I love
Dance cause I dream
Dance cause I've had enough
Dance to stop the screams
Dance to break the rules
Dance to stop the pain
Dance to turn it upside down
It's time to break the chain, oh yeah
Break the Chain, oh yeah
Break the Chain

Dance Break Inst.

Dance, rise
Dance, rise

Sister won't you help me,
sister won't you rise

Dance, rise
Dance, rise

Sister won't you help me,
sister won't you rise

This is my body, my body's holy
No more excuses, no more abuses
We are mothers, we are teachers,
We are beautiful, beautiful creatures

I dance cause I love
Dance cause I dream
Dance cause I've had enough
Dance to stop the screams
Dance to break the rules
Dance to stop the pain
Dance to turn it upside down
Its time to break the chain, oh yeah
Break the Chain, oh yeah
Break the Chain
