This Cage is me

 

That some day you will see my face

Upon that day hear my prayer

Innocence lost without trace

Is like another day no answers more questions

 

That some day you will see my face

And walk through the path I walked

Feeling the thorn in the flesh a second time

Pain loses definition without pleasure

One without the other

Is another day no answers more questions

 

That some day you will wipe away the tear

From my eye and gently caress my fear

While this cage I rattle

 

This cage that holds me prisoner

Its bars stand unbroken

None have the nerve to set me free

For this deep dark prison from which I have spoken

Is not theirs but mine, is me

 

Prisoner I have become to self with none to blame

Habit and character form these formidable wall

Upon which none hear my call

For as an echo it bounces back to me

You see

I grow weary of echoes for they bear truth

That being this deep dark prison from which I speak

None can turn the key and set me free

 

For I am this deep dark prison

This deep dark prison is me

This cage I rattle

This cage is me

Another day no answers

More questions

You see?
