You trapped me with a pretty smile.
And Held me for a little while.
Zoos pay well for the primates,
The lions locked next door.
You sharpen claws, I spin the dials.

'Cause while out late at night,
You held me towards the light
As you trapped me held me close
I trembled from the fight
Breaking down the locks
Of the cages that you set for me
I bust out run away
You say you'll set me free

I don't believe the lies you’re telling me,
I hear you giving chase as I run away.

You had me eating from your hand
A trap I didn't understand
Your pet parade got smarter
And saw the open gate
You're close behind but much too late.

Now I'm a furtive fugitive figuring flaws
From your shimmering, sharpened charms.
And this furtive fugitive runs away
From your glinting open arms.
