lyrics

"I picked up the phone and I called my sister
had to tell that bitch how much I missed her
I said please can you give me some good news
she said, 'Get down on your knees, you got nothing to lose.

You're just a rat in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage

Picked up the phone and I called my brother
tried to figure out what he was under
Been so long since I reached out
I asked him, "Bro, have you figured it out?"

You're just a rate in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage
You're just a rat in a cage

Picked up the phone, and I called my Daddy
Called him "Never Had Any"
I said, " Dad do you have a way out?"
He said, "I got the keys, but I got my doubts"

that there's a rat in the cage
that there's a rat in the cage
that there's a rat in the cage
that there's a rat in the cage

Called my ma couldn't take it no more
always seemed like she was on the other side of the door
never had enough, and she didn't want more
you could beat her down, couldn't keep her on the floor
I said, "Mamma, is there a way to be free?"
She took a deep breath and then she said to me,
"Suffering makes you strong and full of good will,
but don't forget some sugar with that pill.

It's not the rat it's the cage
It's not the rat it's the cage
It's not the rat it's the cage
It's not the rat it's the cage."
