Lyrics:

Could I choose to be a bird
floating ove rmountain pikes
drifting by the ocean side
I'd take that ride

Wide space and no blockades
nothing to pay, all is free
How much I wished that bird was me

But I built myself a cage
and now I can get no way
I'm out of pocket and I'm out of luck
I'm locked to a lowly fate

Spending days looking for ways
ways to find my satisfied mind
spending ash giving up time
of intellectual kind

But when I've spent all I've got
then I realize I'm trapped and I'm locked
Here I stand all set and ready
with only a handful of pennies

I built myself a cage
and now I can get no way
I'm out of pocket and I'm out of luck
I'm locked to a lowly fate

All I want was to go east and west with my compass and backpack
But now I've got nothing left
but my heavy debt
and I'm stuck with my old folks
till I've paid it all off

I built myself a cage
and now I can get no way
I'm out of pocket and I'm out of luck

I built myself a cage
and now I can get no way
I'm out of pocket and I'm out of luck
I'm locked to a lowly, locked to a lowly
I'm locked toa lowly fate
