Track Name: Fragile Cage
Fragile Cage .:.

I get up in the morning,
Lord, I shake this cage.
I go to bed in the evening,
But I can't sleep.
I go to work on Sundays
And my children go to church,
But I can't get away from this Fragile Cage.

I owe everything I own
To a man across town,
And he comes to me
At the end of every week.
He goes to sleep in a house
Way up on Paris Hill
While my love wakes up in a Fragile Cage

Lord, across this land
So far from your view
We all live in a Fragile Cage.

When the sky is empty,
Lord, I shake this cage.
And the hills are on fire
Outside my door,
I'm going to stay up late in the evening
On the day I die,
And lay me down in a Fragile Cage.
