about

Reflections of the day one of my friend Sean's birds got away.
Leaving his pal Cliff behind. Jack flew the coop.
Kinda horrifyin'!

lyrics

JACK IS OUT OF HIS CAGE

The walls made of wire the floor is made of sand
I'll I got’s a seed of thought but Jack has got a plan
He'll pretend I'm him and I’ll pretend he’s me
He'll do anything I can to help to set him free

When the latch is lifted I’ll take to the sky
Yeah the latch is lifted time for me to fly
Jack is out of his cage

Ever since they closed the door and threw him in this hole
It’s the constant institutionalization of his soul
Richard Branson understands the reason for his plight
Charlie Manson gives him absolution for his flight

When the latch is lifted I’ll blow this stupid swing
Yeah the latch is lifted there’s nothing left for me to sing
Jack is out of his cage
Yeah he's out of his cage

He says nothing ventured nothing gained, he's out of his cage

Now he's free for a change, now he's flown out of range

Maybe he’s too high
The gravity of lows
He dreamed he killed two birds
Counting Sheryl’s black crows
And if by some flight of fancy he should make it back to Sean
He’d probably say this Cliff hanger is up and come and gone

Hey the latch was lifted am I Icarus or a stone
Yeah the latch is lifted either way I'm home
Jack is out of his cage
Yeah he's out of his cage

He says nothing ventured nothing gained, he's out of his cage
Jack is out of his cage; Jack is out of his cage
