Metal cages
Everywhere
Arms and legs
In despair
Like a butterfly
One once flew
Now like a dead man
Tired and blue
Useless are my extremities
Yet my mind is as strong as ever
A cage my body has become
A lion my heart now is
Through a window
I see my world
But if you think my window pane
Ever had a drop of rain
You can come again another day
