We'd All Be Free If You'd Just Let Me Go

Every thing's a cage.
Every name, every label,
All of it,
And it's all been holding us down.
Shame, shame,
I don't wanna live life in a cage.
I wanna fly free,
But not in an Emily Sky.
I just want a sky.

Thank you! To be honest, it just kinda popped in my head one day so instead of doing my homework I literally wrote it in the TI submission box. I'm so glad it worked out.
