Lyrics

LYRICS:

What you want is a bird in its gilded cage; a fortress around the cathedral

high on a hill while the buildings blaze. The damage is done when you leave it alone,

sitting upon your throne.

But you, you're high on another God. I caught it from you,

like a bird in its gilded cage.

On and on like the fences we have raised. A casual moment of reason

slips past your mind like a ghost parade. A voice in the air the feels like the cold

rustling your overcoat.

But you, you're high on another God. I caught it from you,

like a bird in its gilded cage.
