30 Days of Music: Day 6 Flyleaf-Cage on the Ground

“I’m leaving my cage on the ground.”

Welcome to the show of my life.

Where I am a monkey on display.

I’ll do what you want as I dream of the knife.

Feeling my dreams wither away.

This is my life, a soul in a cage.

A parrot being told what to say.

I’ll put on my mask and dance on the stage.

You speak and so I obey.

I am a flower wilting in a cave.

Desperate for the light of the sun.

I’ll get out of here, I’ve got to be brave.

Before I’m completely undone.
