Free of my cage

Locked away in a musty tomb,
Shackled to the pits of hell.
One day I’ll break free, break away.


All my strength and all my pain,
Keeps me bound in iron chains!
Now’s the time to break away!!

I’m breaking free of this angry life!
Of these walls of my rage
I’m bustin’ right out of this cage.

I’m a sinner, trespassing on glory!
I’m no saint, I’m no sage,
But for now I’m breakin’ away!!

Runnin’ away, my feet on fire,
Just trying to stay alive.
This is it, my moment of freedom.

Slaying shadows with newfound light,
My warrior spirit all ablaze,
I would sooner die than lose my heart to you!!

I’m breaking free of this life,
Of these walls of my rage,
I’m bustin’ right out of this cage!

I’m a sinner, trespassing on glory!
I’m no saint, I’m no sage,
But for now I’m breakin’ away!!

Caught up in my moment of triumph,
I didn’t see the evil in me.
Is this what I’ve chosen to become?

The laughter of my family and friends,
Can’t break these chains, can’t make amends.
Why did I break out? What was I thinking?!

I’ve broken free of this life,
Of these walls of my rage,
I have busted right out of my cage!

I was a sinner trespassing on glory!
Now I’m a saint, I’m a sage,
And now I’ve broken away!!


Walking among the casualties.
What could this world possibly offer?
I’m being lowered back into my cage.

Shackles on, mouth sewn shut.
Giving in to my walls of rage,
I’m becoming one with the shades!!

But someday…

I’ll break free of this angry life,
Of these walls of my rage,
I’ll be bustin’ right out of my cage.

I’m a sinner, trespassing on glory.
I’m no saint, I’m no sage,
But one day,

I’ll break free of this angry life,
Of these walls of my rage,
I’ll be bustin’ right out of my cage!

I’m a sinner, trespassing on glory!
I’m no saint, I’m no sage,
BUT ONE DAY I’LL BE OUT OF THIS CAGE!!!
