My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key
My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key
I'm standing on a stage of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play but they'll clap anyway
My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me, my mind holds the key

I'm living in an age that calls darkness light
Though my language is dead still the shapes fill my head
I'm living in an age whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving still my heart beats so slow
My body is a cage that keeps me from dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me, my mind holds the key, my body is a

My body is a cage, we take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten that don't mean you're forgiven
I'm living in an age that, screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway there's no one in sight
I'm living in an age, they laugh when I'm dancing
With the one I love but my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me, my mind holds the key

Set my spirit free, set my spirit free
Set my body free, set my body free
Set my spirit free, set my body free

Thought this was The Black Keys at first — must be something about his voice & the distorted quality

Not the best track on a very good album.

"Ponderous and whiney."

Don't listen to Pete Gs version then!



Peter Gabriel does a cover of this on "Scratch My Back"...his new album



had a nightmare last night...think this was playing.
This is okay-ish, but "Intervention" on this album is spectacular, IMHO.

Dear god make it stop.
I've downloaded so many tracks from this, clearly I just need to go buy the whole cd. Fantastic.
Ponderous and whiney.
