Caged

Updated on October 28, 2017

Caged


Caged, we're put down

Caged, don't make a sound

Caged, we can't be found

Suppression and control, all around


We are the rats in the maze

And our minds have been rearranged

Without pain


Make your mind

But don't leave mine behind

Nowhere, is where you'll be found

Success can be rewound

Don't speak without permission for sound

Caged, were put down


Caged, the cower of the mind

Caged, for an undesignated hour

Caged, only by the power

Of our own minds

We are the cage we find


We are the rats in the maze

And our minds have been rearranged

Without pain


... we are the cage we find

      "We are the cage we find." I like that as in this scenario, we can also break free. A bit like Plato's Republic. Cool!
