[Verse 1]

A                                                      A   
You wired me awake, and hit me with a hand of broken nails,  
A                                                               A
you tied my lead and pulled my chain to watch my blood begin to boil.

[Chorus 1] 

 A                G  A             A      G  A
I'm gonna break,         I'm gonna break  my,  
 A
gonna break my rusty cage and run. 
 A                G  A            A     G  A
I'm gonna break,         I'm gonna break my
                        G  N.C.    A                 
gonna break my rusty cage         and run.

[Verse 2]
 
    A
Too cold to start a fire, I'm burning diesel, burning dinosaur bones,  
A
I'll take the river down to still water, and ride a pack of dogs.
 
[Chorus 2]

A                 G  A        A         G  A
I'm gonna break,        I'm gonna break  my,  
 A 
gonna break my rusty cage and run.
 A               G  A         A        G  A
I'm gonna break,        I'm gonna break my
 A                     G  N.C              E  
gonna break my rusty cage        and run...

[Verse 3]
 
E                                 E
When the forest burns along the road  
E                             E
like God's eyes in my headlights,  
E                                    E
when the dogs are looking for their bones,  
E                                         E
and it's raining ice picks on your steel shore.  
 
 [Chorus 3]

E                       
I'm gonna break, I'm gonna break  my,  
E 
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run.    
E                        
I'm gonna break, I'm gonna break  my,  
E 
gonna break my rusty cage and run.    
E                        
I'm gonna break, I'm gonna break  my,  
E 
gonna break my rusty cage and run.     
E                        
I'm gonna break, I'm gonna break  my,  
E                      D  N.C        E
gonna break my rusty cage      and run.
