My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.
My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.
I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt.
It's a hollow play,
But they'll clap anyway
My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.
Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.
I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head.
I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow
My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key.
Standing next to me.
My mind holds the key.
My body is a...
My body is a cage.
We take what we're given,
Just because you've forgotten, that don't mean you're forgiven.
I'm living in an age
Still turning in the night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight.
I'm living in an age,
Realizing I'm dancing
With the one I love,
But my mind holds the key.
You're still next to me,
My mind holds the key.
Set my spirit free.
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Set my body free.
Woo!
Set my spirit free.
Set my body free.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh
