Pacing The Cage

Jimmy Buffett

Sunset is an angel weeping

Holding out a bloody sword

No matter how I squint I cannot

Make out what it's pointing toward

Sometimes you feel like you've lived too long

The days drip slowly on the page

And you catch yourself

Pacing the cage

I've proved who I am so many times,

The magnetic strip's worn thin

And each time I was someone else

And everyone was taken in.

Powers chatter in high places

Stir up eddies in the dust of rage

Set me to pacing the cage.

I never knew what you all wanted

So I gave you everything.

All that I could pillage

All the spells that I could sing

It's as if the thing were written

In the constitution of the age

Sooner or later you'll wind up

Pacing the cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you

You can't see what's round the bend.

Sometimes the road leads through dark places

Sometimes the darkness is your friend.

Today these eyes scan bleached-out land,

For the coming of the outbound stage

Pacing the cage...
