I built myself inside this cage,
And foolishly gave you the only key,
Thinking you’d keep it safe,
Hoping you would, at least.
Cages aren’t always meant to keep people in you tell me,
Sometimes, they’re meant to keep certain ones out,
For safety, for love, for whatever reason you choose,
Because this cage has kept me inside for far too long,
And I have no choice but to believe the poison that drips from your mouth,
Lapping it up with dry tongue,
Foolishly praying one day it’ll give me the strength to break the locks,
Cast the iron aside and find my way out.
I built this cage, yes,
I know that now,
But never did I think you’d use it to keep me locked away.
