Hello everyone! Could you help me to get the meaning of this sentence: " Don't mess with Maui when he's on a breakaway " It's from Moana, a song called 'You're welcome'. I can't find the meaning of 'breakway', I mean what would be reasonable meaning, but not the act of escape, because I don't think Maui is going to escape from somewhere? Actually, it's 'to be on an breakaway'. Hm.. While Maui was singing it, he jumped above with a stone in his hands, and then threw it into a snake's moth. That's the context! I googled breakaway + basketball, and there are a lot of results. I got it all, but, the reason he said it? Just to be in rhyme? So a breakaway is escape from defensive players (Yeah, first definition!), and to be on a breakaway means to do escaping from defensive players? Why do I think it's just to be in rhyme, a dmeigod Maui wouldn't have someone to play basketball with? I'll try to make an example: James fell down while he was on a breakaway. -> While James was escaping from defensive players, he fell down. Could you say if I'm right? Thank you a lot!
