"Caged Bird Sings"

[Intro]
I, I
Church
Mm, I'm finna take you to church, right now
Yeah, listen

[Verse 1]
Check your ego at the door with your winter coat
Summer fall for the games, but the winners won't
The world ain't for your boy, is he?
Mama, I'ma give 'em Hell, I'ma give 'em hope
I'm mixin' up the gumbo, shout out to my momma dukes
Got me cookin' cauliflower, collard greens and cantaloupe
I took a trip to LA, Subi told me that I got the juice
Spit that holy gas but make the pastor holler, "Hallelujah"
I'm tryna change the world before I drop dead
But if I only change myself in the process that's success
I ain't much of a talker, no, I'm a doer (Yeah)
I ain't no game spitter neither, listen, I just prove it (Yeah)
The cook is in the kitchen, the word is set in stone, the proof is in the puddin'
The flow is overcomin', the mode is up and runnin', I'm growin', nevertheless
I'm comin' for all heads, you runnin' your mouth
Tail tucked 'tween your hind legs, your mama will vouch
You gotta let it go

[Chorus]
You can't keep an eagle in a parrot cage
Nah, you can't tell a feather, "Don't get carried away"
Nah, you can't tell a single mother, "No"
You can't stop the mission that I'm on
You can't call me, no
You can't keep an eagle in a parrot cage
Nah, you can't tell a feather, "Don't get carried away"
Nah, you can't tell a single mother, "No"
You can't stop the mission that I'm on
You gotta let it go, ooh, ooh
You gotta let it, ooh, ooh
You gotta let it go

[Verse 2]
Every time I speak, my soul bleeds through the bandages
So these words get reserved for the warriors on canvases
My high passion, it raised, melancholy blues
These the Langston Hughes I use to pain the canvas with (No)
I don't plan to quit anytime soon
Rain, sleet, hail, snow, typhoon
Even as these dark clouds surroundin' me
You reminded me of high noon
Am I a fool to let you through these thin walls of mine?
Am I a fool to introduce you to the borderline?
Look here, these tears on my pillowcase dry
Yet I remain cooler than the side, never mind
Am I a fool to let you through these thin walls of mine?
Am I a fool to introduce you to the borderline?
Look as these tears on my pillowcase dry
Yet I remain cooler than the side, yeah
Never mind the pain, yeah

[Chorus]
You can't keep an eagle in a parrot cage
Nah, you can't tell a feather, "Don't get carried away"
Nah, you can't tell a single mother, "No"
You can't stop the mission that I'm on
You can't call me, no
You can't keep an eagle in a parrot cage
Nah, you can't tell a feather, "Don't get carried away"
Nah, you can't tell a single mother, "No"
You can't stop the mission that I'm on
You gotta let it go, ooh, ooh
You gotta let it, ooh, ooh (Yeah)
You gotta let it go
