Your pocket hands
The sidewalk faces
Your character
and charisma
Your pocket hands
The sidewalk faces

They told me to be ashamed but I don’t see it that way
Leash my animals and keep them tamed inside a cage to waste
Out on the catwalk where they crave to fill the space
You’ve got a life to live and a story to tell
Put them up and ring your bells

Character
and charisma
I hear your voice
To give my eyes something to be

They told me to be ashamed but I don’t see it that way
Leash my animals and keep them tamed
inside a cage to waste
Out on the catwalk where they crave to fill the space
You’ve got a life to live and a story to tell
Put them up and ring your bells

Out on the catwalk where they crave to fill the space
You’ve got a life to live and a story to tell
Put them up and ring your bells

    General CommentThank god! i've been trying to find these lyric forever.
    It sounds like he doesn't feel free. And people keep telling him to do stuff he doesn't want to "They told me to be ashamed but I don't see it that way"

    General CommentI think this song reflects his change of path in his music career. From leaving FFTL to persue a musical dream of his to make electronic music. People probably gave him a hard time about his decision
    "They told me to be ashamed but I don't see it that way"

    He also criticizes todays creative industries, implying that there are always boundaries being put around peoples ways of creativity in their effort to express themselves. He is saying that it's a waste to reside within these boundaries, people should always push the boundaries and express themselves how ever they wish too.
    "Leash my animals and keep them tamed
    inside a cage to waste
    Out on the catwalk where they crave to fill the space"

    The underlying message that Sonny is trying to get across is that we only get one life and we should live it how we want and to the fullest potential, show the world who you are and what you're doing and be proud of it.
    "You've got a life to live and a story to tell
    Put them up and ring your bells"

    Well that's what I think anyway. I think this song is so personal and powerful, one of my favourites from Sonny.
