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

Too cold to start a fire

I'm burning diesel burning dinosaur bones

I'll take the river down to still water
                 
And ride a pack of dogs

I'm gonna break

I'm gonna break my

I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

Hits like a Phillips head into my brain

It's gonna be too dark to sleep again

Cutting my teeth on bars and rusty chains

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
