You're just pacing back and forth
In this cage you're contained
Knowing that your stronger
Than their iron bars and chains
But you're not willing to risk
The comfort of these walls
Because they're all you know
And all you've ever dared to love
You blend in so well
Your stripes like the shadows
That they cast upon you
You're a tiger but they've broken you down
To some kind of kitty you're not
And will never be
What's the matter?
Is hiding here all you ever do?
You've lost your roar in the noise
Lost your power in the nets
That they throw over you
You know you can break through these chains!
So won't you show them
Please just show them
You're not a house cat anymore
