Genesis - In The Cage

I got sunshine in my stomach


Like I just rocked my baby to sleep


I got sunshine in my stomach


But I can't keep me from creeping sleep


Sleep, deep in the deep


Rock face moves to press my skin

White liquid turn sour within

Turn fast, turn sour

Turn sweat, turn sour

Must tell myself that I'm not here

I'm drowning in a liquid fear

Bottled in a strong compression

My distortion shows obsession

In the cave


Get me out of this cave!


If I keep my self-control

I'll be safe in my soul

And the childhood belief

Brings a moment's relief

But my cynic soon returns

And the lifeboat burns

My spirit just never learns


Stalactites, stalagmites

Shut me in, lock me tight

Lips are dry, throat is dry

Feel like burning, stomach churning

I'm dressed up in a white costume

Padding out leftover room

Body stretching, feel the retching

In the cage


Get me out of the cage


In the glare of a light

I see a strange kind of sight

Of cages joined to form a star

Each person can't go very far

All tied to their things

They're netted by their strings

Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings


Outside the cage I see my brother, John


He turns his head so slowly 'round


I cry out, 'Help" before he can be gone


And he looks at me without a sound


And I shout out, "John, please help me!"

But he does not even want to try to speak


I'm helpless in my violent rage


And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek


And I watch him turn away and leave the cage

My little runaway


Raindrops keep falling on my head

They keep falling on my

Raindrops keep falling on my head

They keep falling on my


Raindrops keep falling on my head...


In a trap, feel a strap

Holding still, pinned for kill

Chances narrow that I'll make it

In the cushioned straight-jacket

Just like 22nd Street

They got me by my neck and feet

Pressures building, can't take more

My headaches charge, earaches roar

In this pain

Get me out of this pain

If I could change to liquid

I could fill the cracks up in the rocks

I know that I am solid

And I am my own bad luck

Outside John disappears and my cage dissolves

And without any reason my body revolves


Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Keep on turning

Turning around

Just spinning around
