if I change my ways,
will you then set me free?
from this cage so small
tied down and trapped?
if I promise I won’t run away
will you tell me something gay
will you free me from this bondage?
or will you just keep me in a cage?
If I try harder to live independently
will you give me my sweet, ultimate freedom?
