Do caged places protect us? Are we under someone's control?
Caged - (To The One Under The Control of Another)

Standing in your cage,
You're safe and secure.
Others look at you and notice
How you're looking very mature.

They don't see your strange surroundings.
They're used to seeing you there.
But you know he's holding you in,
And you don't even seem to care?

In the busy world outside
The winds of time fiercely blow.
Do you see their swift movements,
Or do they not even show -

Inside your little cage
Where you're safe and secure?

"Please, oh please, break free"
I plead with you, "No longer endure".
