“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.
