Verse 1:
"I fight, I try,
I lose, I get up, I fall down again.
I steal, I lie, 
anything to make me think that I'm alright. 

I see a mountain in my way,
& I'm not sure that I can stay,
but if I climb, I'll fall back down,
on the cold, hard ground. 
I'm sick of being on the ground."

"Even a beast can become enslaved,
trapped inside an iron cage.
It doesn't matter what I do, the bars just never seem to move.
I'm just a pawn in someone else's game."

Verse 2:
"I scratched, I cried, 
but no-one was around to tell me why
I stole, I lied,
& now I'm locked up until the day I die.

I see a mountain in my way,
behind these bars I'll never climb it,
but at least I won't lie on the ground,
that cold, hard ground..."

"Even a man becomes enslaved,
if you lock him in an iron cage.
it doesn't matter what we do, those bars will never seem to move.
We're just pawns in someone else's game."

Verse 3:
"It's our fault.
That's what I keep telling myself.
It's your fault.
You should have managed to escape.
It's their fault.
they're the ones who locked you in here.
All your fault.
You're the one who let them do it..."

"Even heroes becomes enslaved,
if you lock them in an iron cage.
it doesn't matter what they'll do, those bars will always never move.
We're all just pawns in no-one else's game."
