Caged

Controlled and enslaved

Like animals in a zoo

Trapped in our cages

There is little we can do

 

Our cages are not physical

But real nonetheless

Bars made not of metal

But of race and wealth and class

 

They feed us lies and delusions

To keep us all contained

Freedom an illusion

They pump into our brains

 

Controlled and enslaved

Like animals in a zoo

Trapped in our cages

There is but one thing we can do

 

If we stand with our neighbours

Ignore the false divides

And if we all pull together

We can bend the bars aside

 

These cages will not hold us

If we just reject the hate

Let love unite us

Let love liberate
