I look out below me the clouds on top the blue
Kid's thinking about nothing, cause there's absolutely nothing to do
The door ain't wide just open, open to the sky
On top the cage keep hopin, sayin cause on top the cage just try, on top da cage
Help out your brother to the light at peace is a helping hand
With help from our mother we shine so bright and march to the father's land
I said we take the spot and we take it up top and the key fits in the lock
You come with me on this lifting walk, and you know you never come back
Because on top the cage is the harmony that bars and chains never chime
Wherever we go it's not far for me, better befriend old man time.
I stood on top of this cage one night, all night long
From here the view was proud
I could see all these beautiful clouds
So I told people come out of your cage
Time to break lock forever
Join together march on top hold my hand, say goodbye to never
You can be my man if you want to hang out here
Just me my girl on top of this world and we sit there and we stare
At the clouds, green hills, and the mountaintops, and the river to the side
You can come too, if you want, you don't have to hide.
