It’s the strongest cage that exists
The prison you can never escape from
No matter how hard you fight to resist
You can not stop the way your heart strings strum
You can’t escape the Alcatraz in your head
A prison made with bars of strongest steel
And every time that you go to bed
You will not be able to help but feel
The loneliness seeping into your heart
The emptiness creeping into your soul
But it doesn’t matter, you will do your part
You will stoke the fire and tend the coal.
It’s not about you: it never will be,
You don’t want it to. This way you are free.
