lyrics

Must I stand still in the dark?
Feet fixed two stones that never made a spark no
Like a diamond soon to be mined
There's no beat in this lattice of a heart no

Must I fool my double image
When a rare ray of light reveals a double vision
Yes I've been known to pantomime
The lips move, but the body's stuck in time

My dreams were trapped oh but love refracts my soul
A crystal cage, oh my nights and days

I'm gonna break free yeah
I will decide what my life will be
Break on free yeah
I won't stand my while my life is made for me

Crystal cage and I turn the page
Gonna take my chances do it my way
Crystal cage, crystal cage
Let it all go let it all be yeah

Sylvia had her bell jar
And Simone feared the life of the boudoir
Can you believe we made it this far
To trade one gilded grave for another one?

My dreams were trapped oh, but love refracts, my soul
A crystal cage oh, my nights and days

I'm gonna break free yeah
I will decide what my life will be
Break on free yeah
I won't stand my while my life is made for me

I got a crystal cage I got a gilded grave I got a life of spades that's why I gotta get away
I got a crystal cage I got a gilded grave I got a life of spades that's why I gotta get away
I got a crystal cage I got a gilded grave I got a life of spades that's why I gotta get away
