"Tell Me Why the Caged Bird Sings"

I hear that little voice inside my head

But I'm tired of listening

It tells me, "Do this, you know what's right",

But I know better, now.

I wish my conscience was like that cricket in Pinocchio,

It'd go off on vacation for a while

While I'd stay in reality.

I want to be a free bird

So help me escape these chains; this cage

Now, tell me why the caged bird sings.
