I was a bird in a cage
I sang for freedom
I sang to escape
So I set that bird ablaze
I watched as I rose
Above the flames

So high, high
I rise, rise

Out of the darkness into the light
I shine like the stars burning holes in the sky
Oh I always dreamed
Of being released I soar through the air now
With the greatest of ease

So high, high,
I rise, rise

Oh tonight
These bars turn to wind chimes
That echo out of my windpipe
As I sing from such great heights

I was a bird in a cage
I sang for freedom
I sang to escape
So I set that bird ablaze
I watched as I rose
Above the flames

So high, high
I rise, rise
So high, high
I fly, fly
