Father John Misty – Gilded Cage lyrics
(Hotel Artemis Soundtrack)

[Verse 1]
Oh
I sold fortune, I gave up my claim
I traded sunshine for the pouring rain
I found wise men but I turned the other way
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage

[Chorus]
Well, they say only a fool would throw it all away
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage

[Verse 2]
Oh, everybody works just like a slave
All full the softest coffin that they made
But I say "why bother coming if you got to leave that way?"
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage

[Chorus]
Well, they say only a fool would throw it all away
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage

Oh, oh

[Instrumental Bridge]

[Outro]
Well, they say only a fool would throw it all away
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage
Well, they say only a fool would throw it all away
And some day I'll up and fly this gilded cage
Some day I'll up and fly my gilded cage
