C.A.G.E.D.(Chains Are Gripping Everyday)

In this cage there's no room
Dark all around like a cocoon
I wish to break free soon
Fly up up and away so high I can reach the moon
But somehow my agility
And overall ability
For unlimited mobility is affected
My freedom so highly disrespected
My limbs gripped by the chains
So tight I can't feel the blood rush to my brain
The pain
Leaves me in disdain
I pounce on these bars my skin covered in stains
The scratching of my claws
And paws 
The chains won't let go
Hunter to hunted
Predator to prey
Locked up and threw away the key, I'm blocked from every way
Can't maul
Can't growl
Chewed bones in a pile
My future looks vile
It's a feast
Swallow them whole now they live in the belly of the beast
The scars from the whips are the mark of the beast
Too bad they overlooked my healing factor like Wolverine
My head is chopped off like I met the guillotine
I wish i could cause mayhem
The damage is so chaotic
The sounds of the screams
So melodic
Hitting the cage of life with forceful tackles
I'm being held by the shackles
The thought of execution keeps up with me
I can go head-to-head with a cobra
Call me mongoose
I am forever caged like a beast
These chains won't let loose
Bulldozer can't make me fall
Neither can a wrecking ball
Lord help me out of this cage
But for what price
You take your pick
We switch places you get the cage
And I get the crucifix...
