The Golden Birdcage

 




Captivated you hold me close

intrigued I want to believe

liberation we're all deceived 


hanging on empire

no court tries to free

here out to dry  


each one of us hung

don't you see now

which side 


peacocks Rome

through Rousseau's jungle

dream freedom's play


their stage the golden cage

see you from behind 

curtains raised 


the actors gone

just you and me 

so paradise prevails
