I'm so glad
I've left your fantasy
A life dependent
On some unachievable dream
I was the fool that followed
Too slow to cotton on
I was blind like Eva Braun
You could do no wrong

Why did you keep me
Like a bird in a cage?
You should have known
You couldn't lock me up at that age
I'm a fledgling
Can't you see I wanna fly?
I'm too young to die

My red carpet
Was your propagation place
Naively rolled out
By my adolescent taste
Conditioned by a one-man cult
I thought I needed no-one else
My mind was infiltrated
I didn't know myself

Why did you keep me
Like a bird in a cage?
You should have known
You couldn't lock me up at that age
I'm a fledgling
Can't you see I wanna fly?
I was too young to die

I can't believe I played your game
I entertained your thoughts
And then drove myself insane
Sucked in by your crocodile tears
So stupid I carried your fears
I'm so glad I've let go

Well, now at last
I feel so far removed
It's all so obvious
I see your each your every move
But I feel free, whereas you
You're stuck in your guilt
Because of me
Well get used to it baby 'cause
I've thrown away your key

Why did you keep me
Like a bird in a cage?
You should have known
You couldn't lock me up at that age
I'm a fledgling
Can't you see I wanna fly?
I was too young to die
