My Body Is a Cage
Arcade Fire Lyrics


My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on a stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a,

My body is a cage
We take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten
That don't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age
That screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight

I'm living in an age
That laughs when I'm dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free

Set my spirit free
Set my body free

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on a stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a

My body is a cage
We take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten
That don't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age
That screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight

I'm living in an age
That laughs
When I'm dancing
With the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free

Set my spirit free
Set my body free

From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key
I'm standing on a stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway
My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Still the shapes fill my head
I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow
My body is a cage that keeps me
From dancing with the one I love

You're standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a,
My body is a cage
We take what we're given

My body is a cage,
That keeps me from dancing from the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage,
That keeps me from dancing with the one love,
But my mind holds the key

I’m standing on a stage of fear and self-doubt,
It’s a hollow play, but they clap anyway

My body is a cage,
That keeps me from dancing with the one so love,
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me,
My mind holds the key

I’m living in an age, that calls darkness light
Though my language is dead, still the shapes fill my head

I’m living in an age, whose name I don’t know,
Though the fear keeps me moving, still my heart moves so slow

My body is a cage,
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love,
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me,
My mind holds the key

My body is a cage, we take what we’re given
Just because you’ve forgotten doesn’t mean you’re forgiven

I’m living in an age, that screams my name at night,
But when I get to the doorway, there’s no one inside

I’m living in an age, that laughs when I’m dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free

Set my spirit free
Set my body free

"My body is a cage, that keeps me from dancing with the one I love but my mind holds the key" I've yet to find a song that I can relate my social anxiety to as much as this one.

Olga Nihil Pondo

@Ham Biscuit Same, I also relate it to my disability. I've Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and I live with pain every day, my body is broken... this song is so personal to me it hurts :(
Also your transgender interpretaton is really good, as a nonbinary person, I agree totally

Yevgeniya Leshchenko

I am very sorry, I don't want to be dismissive but this song is about aging and dying. As simple as that.

Yevgeniya Leshchenko

@Timorio You're right

maria babe

that line describes it perfectly.

Truth Ishard2find

Your mind is the key to everything. That is why they try to control it. Brain training and steroidgenessis is what I am working on now. I stumbled across it while studying geocentrism about 7 years ago. Trust me, your anxiety will be gone. It's time we all wake up together. Peace and Love
