"On Top The Cage" as written by and Marc Andrew Roberge Richard On....
I look out below me the clouds on top the blue
Kids thinking about nothing, cause there's
Absolutely nothing to do.
The door ain't wide just open, open to the sky

On top the cage keep hopin', sayin cause on top
The cage just try, on top the cage
Help out your brother to the light at peace is a
Helping hand

With help from our mother we shine so bright and
March to the father's land
I said we take the spot and we take it up top and
The key fits in the lock

You come with me on this lifting walk, and you
Know you never come back
Because on top the cage is the harmony that bars
And chains never chime

Wherever we go it's not far for me, better befriend
Old man time.
I stood on top of this cage one night, all night long
From here the view was proud

I could see all these beautiful clouds
So I told people come out of your cage
Time to break lock forever
Join together march on top hold my hand, say

Goodbye to never
You can be my man if you want to hang out here
Just me and my girl on top of this world and we sit
There and we stare

At the clouds, green hills, and the mountaintops,
And the river to the side
You can come too, if you want, you don't have to hide

    General CommentThis song is about being above all races and being above anything that divides us and it is about being one under this one great higher being. This song is also about being peaceful and loving one another.

    General CommentTo me this song is about rising above outside influences and social chains to be what you really want to be no matter what anyone else says or wants for you.

    General Commenti think this song is about racism. how it doesnt matter wut color you are. or it can lead to other things like it doesnt matter wut you look like or wut you wear. as long as your happy with yourself and it doesnt matter what people think. and also how you should rise above other influences and get away from it all

    General Commentit is about racism, its about standing on "top this cage" with everyone fighting below him, him looking up at the beauty around him and all the hatred below him

    General Comment"they try to feed you all these races
    they try to feed you all these sexes
    and these creeds don't mean a thing
    because we all are one under that great sun
    you must understand my hand is the same as the next
    and your neighbor right next to you, he feels the same in his chest"

    this is from the any time now version. so definitely a song against racism, and just any kind of prejudice really. love it
