Bullet in Childhood's Wing


When the dreamers perspire, cross a line

Border patrollers, hold you up for good

And what do I get, for my time?

Betrayed desires, for a piece of the pie

Even though I know, it is worse back home

All my hopes and dreams, broken toys

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Families they break, childhood lost can never be saved

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Now I'm shaken, treated like an animal

But can you fake news, or is it all for show?

And what do I want? Just to live free

And what have I got, don’t you want the same?

Even though I know, it is worse back home

All my hopes and dreams, broken toys

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Families they break, childhood lost can never be saved

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Tell me I'm the foreign one

Tell me there's no better home

America’s got no room, yeah.

Tell me you’re the welcome one

America’s got no room for me

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Families they break, childhood lost can never be saved

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a-

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a-

In spite of my age I am still just a kid in a cage

Tell me I'm the foreign one

Tell me there's no better home

America’s got no room for me

And I am not free and I can’t understand

And I am not free and I can’t understand

And I am not free and I can’t understand

And I am not free and I can’t understand

I saw a meme photo today. And words it said on it, spoke of wrongs. So it took the line and fit it into a Smashing Pumpkins song. The result is an unfunny parody of Bullet with Butterfly Wings.
