​Cage & Aquarium

This song is by They Might Be Giants and appears on the album Lincoln (1988) and on the compilation album Then: The Earlier Years (1997).

Somebody's reading your mind
Damned if you know who it is
They're digging through all of your files
Stealing back your best ideas

You cover your windows with lead
Even keeping the pets outside
Then you hear, a moment too late
This sound coming over the phone

This is the spawning of the cage and aquarium
Don't wait a moment too soon
Used to be different, now you're the same
Yawn as your plane goes down in flames

This is the spawning of the cage and aquarium
Don't wait a moment too soon
Used to be different, now you're the same
Yawn as your plane goes down in flames
