    General CommentObviously there aren't many hip hop heads on this site if there's only one Cage song. Thanks for adding it hak... check out the Cunninlynguists, Heiruspecs and Immortal Technique pages. Pretty much all me. Anyway...

    Honestly, this song is inferior to Atmosphere's Hair for just about every reason. The story is about exactly the same, finding the perfect girl only to fuck it up because of drugs/alcohol. It's just that Cage often has shock value for shock value's worth. Something he's cut back on a just a LIL bit on Hell's Winter. In Atmosphere's Hair you don't see it coming as it comes at the very end after clever dialogue, etc. Where as Cage just loves to linger in the most fucked up situations possible.

    General CommentI am a bigger Atmosphere fan than a Cage fan, but I prefer the slower beat and fucked up lyrics by Cage as compared to the relatively upbeat instrumental and lyics by Slug and Ant. I particularly like the last lines of each verse on "Breakup."

    General CommentYeah, I love the beat to this song.

    Does anyone know the lyrics to the bridge? It sounds like "Bitch, snap out of it x2, It's just a girl, just the world..." and I can't make out anything else.

    General Commentthe bridge is actually from Suicidal Failure from Cage's Movies For The Blind release in 2002. "Snap out of this, Cage. Snap out of this- just a girl, just the world, it's just the life."

    the lyrics are "snap out of it, cage snap out of it, its just a girl, just a world, its just a life" and that repeats
    its a sample taken from "a suicidal failure" which is from cage's album before hell's winter

    General Commentwhy the hell are you comparing cage (1 person aka artist) and atmosphere (3 people aka GROUP)?

    you guys should get your facts straight before you try to compare dr. octagon and mf doom together aswell.

    maybe you shouldn't listen to any one on def jux and stick with atmosphere who goes on warp tour.

    General CommentAtmosphere has had 2 members since Spawn left after the Overcast release. Slug is the only rapper in the group. I also don't see why you couldn't compare somewhat similar artists because one of the two considers the producer to be in the group. And I'm sorry for listening to more than one type of music.

    General Commentok shut the hell up everyone who the fuck cares if they are artists or not or if they rap differently its their own style, thats why its Cage and Atmosphere, not Cagemosphere.. cuz they are different... now comparing Hair and this song and saying they are the same is pretty dumb because they are about completely dif things.. this songs meaning is in the title and hes describing how hes describing the emotional side of dealing with the breakup..

    in hair it could be seen as a couple different ways, as an opposite physical side to the song Reflections, or a story about how alcohol changes things neither of which has anything to do with a breakup as he just met a girl at a bar.

    Atmosphere tends to have a more upbeat and intellectual way of rapping while cage has a more down depressing and poignant rapping style... pick your poison but dont argue who's better its a matter of taste preference.. i mean they are different rappers and different people different minds get the fuck over it already holy cow

    General Commentthe lyrics in the bridge are
    'cage snap out of it, its just a girl, shes just the world, its just my life.

    The lyrics are in the song 'sisidle falure'
    Where he is also talking about loosing his girlfriend.
