But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams 

his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream 

his wings are clipped and his feed are tied 

so his opens his throat to sing. 



The caged bird sings 

with a fearful trill 

of things unknown 

but longed for still 

and his tune is heard

on the distant ill 

for the caged bird 

sings of freedom.
