  • Don't know just how long but I've
    Been trapped in here quite a while
    Wonder if I'll make it out, ahh, ahh
    I miss my friends, I miss the sky
    Feel like I just live to die
    But that can't be what life's about, ah, ah

    I think they just lock me up to taunt me (taut me)
    I won't ever let nobody own me, own me
    I don't let these thoughts of freedom haunt me (haunt me)
    What you gon' do when they learn the truth?

    Every time I
    Feel like I just can't take it no more
    I get angry
    That's when I start runnin'
    In my mind's eye
    Lies the key that'll open the door
    You can't break me
    There's a new day comin'

    That's what happens when you let a bunch of wild animals out the cage

    Think our biggest problem is
    It all gets so monotonous
    Holding us all hostages, ah, ah
    Weighin' down on top of us
    Draining all our confidence
    But I won't stay anonymous, ah, ah

    I think they just lock me up to taunt me (taut me)
    I won't ever let nobody own me, own me
    I don't let these thoughts of freedom haunt me (haunt me)
    What you gon' do when they learn the truth?

    Every time I
    Feel like I just can't take it no more
    I get angry
    That's when I start runnin'
    In my mind's eye
    Lies the key that'll open the door
    You can't break me
    There's a new day comin'

    Let me out this cage, I've been here way too long, way too long
    Planning my escape, I see the break of dawn
    What you gon' do when they learn the truth?

    Every time I
    Feel like I just can't take it no more
    I get angry
    That's when I start runnin'
    In my mind's eye
    Lies the key that'll open the door
    You can't break me (you can't break me)
    There's a new day

    Every time I (oh, whoa)
    Feel like I just can't take it no more (oh, oh)
    I get angry (I get angry)
    That's when I start runnin' (ah)
    In my mind's eye (in my mind's eye)
    Lies the key that'll open the door
    You can't break me (you can't break me)
    There's a new day comin'

    That's what happens when you let a bunch of wild animals out the cage
