Lion Lyrics

[Danny:]
I am a lion and I want to be free
Do you see a lion when you look inside of me?
Outside the window just to watch you as you sleep
Cause I am a lion born from things you cannot be
How can I sleep at night, there's a roar inside my...

    I believe this song to be for J3T who is speaking as a father. His daughter, when seeing her for the first time, brought out the "lion" in him. He now knows the responsibility of being a father, and all he wants is for her to be happy and proud of him-- hence why Danny says "Do you see a lion when you look inside of me?" He wants to be strong for his daughter, protect her from everything, and be her lion.

    Of course, it has plenty other meanings to it as well, but when I hear the lyrics, this is what strikes me the most.

    'Lion' is a metaphor which describes someone as being a king of some sort. Maybe a king or leader of a prison, since this person 'wants to be free'. Is suggests that the person had potential of going far, but is trapped, hence J3T mentions 'Everything we could've been'.

    'All those little kids, living life like they only get a little bit' could mean that poor, innocent kids are being imprisoned, like those from the holocaust. It's just a suggestion. After all, it's 'hard to fight when you're born in the middle'. Kids being brought up during a war or violent era.
