I tried to make a break What a fool I should've known, I never listen I'm in a cage An animal, I'm in a cage
But the reptiles They won't let me go I think they want you to stray
Watch the monkey dance Give 'em a taste Look at him he's always smiling Help me to escape Your mouth agape You foreign tourist
Woe is me, it will be a funeral A circus, I'll rap on the cell door Questions are a fire That needs feeding to survive So just you let those flames die down
Trained by consequence and the lash It leaves me breathless Their praise is a poison to us all In the moonlight their scars flash like jewelry Get too precious Get locked up in a cage
Want to get, gotta risk any move Misconstrued and you're screwed Tongues flash and flick as if they're screaming
Oh they lie just like a lover Oh do they, those kisses will burn
Under the lights They snap a finger You jump, you answer Like a naive hooker with a big dumb smile
For the reptiles I guess you'll never know They won't let you go Cause you're the soup du'jour, that's for sure
Questions are a fire That needs feeding, to survive So just you let those flames die down
See them reptiles crawl? Getting closer Why won't someone come to drive them away?
Don't rest too long It's a mistake we can't take back Take one lying down for a change And oh it's like cleaning up after an orgy When it's over I wish someone would burn this place To the ground
