Rusty Cage | Day 251

No offense to Johnny Cash, but I took Rusty Cage from the group that pulled it off, Soundgarden.

Rusty Cage SoundgardenSoundgarden’s “Rusty Cage” was just one of many great songs from this band. I may have been in high school during the 80s, but I call the 90s my music. I love the bands that came from that time, the music, the grunge scene,..everything. I was in my 20s, near the tail end of college, living in the city, single and the music seemed to fit who I was at the time. Chris Cornell’s voice was something I always envied, but his way of vocally doing things can kill a singer unless they know what they are doing.

Lyrics:

You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin t boil

But I’m gonna break
I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Too cold to start a fire
I’m burning diesel burning dinosaur bones
I’ll take the river down to still water
And ride a pack of dogs

I’m gonna break
I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Hits like a Phillips head
Into my brain
It’s gonna be too dark
To sleep again
Cutting my teeth on bars
And rusty chains, I’m gonna break my
Rusty cage and run

When the forest burns
Along the road
Like God’s eyes
In my headlights
When the dogs are looking
For their bones
And it’s raining icepicks
On your steel shore

I’m gonna break
I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run
