THE ANIMALS - We've Gotta Get Out of This Place

INVISIBLE CAGE
I hate the way we treat animals, birds and fishes. I, or should I say my wife, has an African grey and a parakeet. The poor things probably know no better, as they were born in captivity. But I cringe when I watch them in their cages. Birds are meant to fly, not be in a cage. It is the same for big cats and bears. We are so cruel to animals, but what is new?, we are cruel to each other.

What do I do?, nothing from  my invisible cage.
INVISIBLE CAGE
I hate to see, birds stuck in a cage
all day on a perch, staring at mirrors
they have their wings
but no room to fly

I hate to see, bears stuck in a cage
round in circles, slowly going mad
forced to do tricks
to make us laugh

I hate to see, cats stuck in a cage
pace back and fore, nowhere to go
all need to run free
and be who they are

inside I'm filled, deep with rage
ashamed I do nothing
from my invisible cage


I hate what happens, to majestic whales
the sad ocean is their freedom cage
hunt them all down
until they're all gone

I hate what happens, to grand elephants
poached and chased for ivory tusks
they steal their lives
for nothing but greed

inside I'm filled, deep with rage
ashamed I do nothing
from my invisible cage
