My Body Is a Cage

This song is by Arcade Fire and appears on the album Neon Bible (2007).

This song has been covered by Peter Gabriel under the title "My Body Is a Cage".
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 a 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

You're 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

You're 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 that, screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway there's no one in sight
I'm living in an age, they laugh when I'm dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free

Set my spirit free
Set my body free

Win Butler and Regine Chassagne.

"We were in some shitty hotel in the desert,” remembers Butler, of a 2005 tour that had wound its way to New Mexico. “I started singing in the shower and Régine started singing with me, and this song called My Body Is A Cage came out - and it’s probably the most fully formed song we have ever written."
