lyrics

I am a caged bird, trapped in my own mind
I am a caged bird, trapped in my own spine
I was a caged bird
I was fragile
I am fragile
A frail frame, and I'm sinking deep
I have buried myself in lies, just to feel alive
I was fragile
A cage made of my own bones
I have buried myself in lies, just to feel alive
I used to call you home
But now I can't stand the sight of you
I've been buried for far too long
This cage, this cage, it won't let me go
Buried myself in lies, just to feel alive
And I know I'd rather cut my fucking throat
Than spend another moment with you
I'd rather be on my own and feeling lonely
Than spend this time with you feeling alone
I've been trying to leave you behind for years
But soon you'll be a lover, whose name I don't remember.
I won't remember.
And I'd rather be on my own and feeling lonely
Then waste this time with you feeling alone
