In the Cage

This song is by Genesis and appears…

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

Rockface moves
To press my skin
White liquids
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 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

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
Left-over room

Body stretching
Feel the wretching
In the cage
Get me out of the cage!

In the glare of a light
I see a strange kind of sight
All cages joined to from a star
Each person can't go very far
All tied to their things
They are 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 again
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

In a trap
Feel a strap
Holding still
Pinned for kill

Chances narrow
That I'll make it
In the cushioned
Just like 22nd St
And they got me
By my neck and feet

Pressure's building
Can't take more
My headache's charged
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 rock
But 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
Down, down, down...
