A Cage Built For Me (3min24)

Silent rage and insecure feelings, associated with pain
I hate what I cannot be and want what I can never have
I hate what is expected of me when I haven’t enough to give
I feel lost when I look into the darkness of this room

A cage built for me
A cage built for me
A cage built for me
A cage built for me

I feel dissatisfaction with myself and the things I have accomplished
I feel disappointment with the person I am and will become
I suffer with constant regret of the mistakes I have made and the ones I am making
I hurt at the sight of all this space inside

(Chorus repeat)

I wish it to be dark when the sun is shining bright
I feel alone and tormented by the light of day
I hear emptiness in the words I hear myself speak
And I can’t imagine why I have a single friend in this fucked up world

(Chorus repeat)

I look around in the first light of day and feel pity
I feel everyone around me has to something wrong with them
I think that I am the only one with any common sense
And the only one not knowing enough to ignore it all

(Chorus repeat)

I feel trapped in a place which holds no future for me
I feel trapped inside of my own heart and mind
I know these feelings are too strong for one person to deal with
I know there is definitely something wrong with me

(Guitar solo through
Chorus and verse)

What is it that I want? I used to know for sure
I used to have the outline, I used to have a plan with goals
Now my goals are beyond reach and I have failed

I feel heartless when I face how I truly feel
I feel scared at what this means for me and my future
I am terrified at the thought of spending eternity inside
Rotting inside this cage built for me

Rotting inside this cage built for me
