Rusty Cage Lyrics
And hit me with a hand of broken nails.
You tied my lead and pulled my chain,
To watch my blood begin to boil.
But I'm gonna break,
I'm gonna break my,
Gonna break my rusty cage and run.
I'm gonna break,
I'm gonna break...

He's talking about being a victim of the modern age. one can only be truly free when he walks away from the program not just quit the system and survive but thrive.the song is a fantasy that only exists in his mind.

I think the song is about a break-through that happens to Born again Christians after leaving a life being in bondage/imprisoned w sin
to being free in Christ...
