Rusty Cage
by Johnny Cash



You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin to boil

But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

Too cold to start a fire
I'm burning diesel, burning dinosaur bones
I'll take the river down to still waters
And ride a pack of dogs

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

When the forest burns along the road
Like God's eyes in my headlights
When the dogs are looking for their bones
And it's raining icepicks on your steel shore

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run
