Pacing The Cage  Bruce Cockburn

[C]Sunset [G/B]is an angel we[F2/A]eping
[C]Holding [G/B]out a bloody sw[F2/A]ord
[C]No matter [G/B]how I squint I ca[F2/A]nnot
[C]Make out [G/B]what it's pointing to[F2/A]ward
[F]Sometimes you feel like you've [G]lived too long
[Am]Days drip slowly on the page       [F]
[F]You catch yourself
[G]Pacing the cage [F]           [G]
[C]I've proven [G/B]who I am so many ti[F2/A]mes
[C]The magnetic [G/B]strips worn th[F2/A]in
[C]And each time [G/B]I was someone els[F2/A]e
[C]And everyo[G/B]ne was taken in[F2/A]
[F]Powers chatter in high p[G]laces
[Am]Stir up eddies in the dust of rage       [F]
[G]Set me to pacing the cage[F]               [G]
[C]I never [G/B]knew what you  all [F2/A]wanted
[C]So I [G/B]gave you everythi[F2/A]ng
[C]All that [G/B]I could pi[F2/A]llage
[C]All the [G/B]spells that I could si[F2/A]ng
[F]It's as if the thing were w[G]ritten
[Am]In the constitution of the age    [F]
[F]Sooner or later you'll wind up
[G]Pacing the cage [F]             [G]


[C]Sometimes the [G/B]best map will not guide yo[F2/A]u
[C]You can't [G/B]see what's round the be[F2/A]nd
[C]Sometimes the [G/B]road leads through dark pl[F2/A]aces
[C]Sometimes the [G/B]darkness is your fr[F2/A]iend
[F]Today these eyes scan [G]bleached out land
[Am]For the coming of the outbound stage            [F]
[G]Pacing the cage[F]
[G]Pacing the cage [F]          [C]
