I open my eyes and I start seeing red
I just wish they'd learn to give me a proper bed
And I look around, there are bars all over me
Oh, Mama, you must, you must begin to set me free

For I wanna run, like a leopard across the room
To lie in the sun, that's shining in full bloom

I start to scream, to get attention here
I hold the bars and I shake them through my tears
Please let me go, I need another chance
I'll be so good if you give me freedom in advance

For I wanna swim, like a dolphin across the room
To bask in the sun, that's shining in full bloom
To breathe in the air, that normal people breathe
Just what does this mean?
Just what does this mean?
Tell me now

The oppressor comes in and gives an understanding smirk
Crosses the room and give the bars a little jerk
The bars tumble down, I hold my hands up high
The freedom is mine, as I'm scooped into the sky

For now I can fly like an eagle across the room
To soar in the sun, that's shining in full bloom
To breathe in the air, that normal people breathe
You've just got to scream, you've just got to scream
Oh, you've just got to scream, you've just got to scream
