Jackson Cage - Bruce Springsteen
    Driving home she grabs something to eat

    Turns a corner and drives down her street
    Into a row of houses she just melts away
    Like the scenery in another man's play
    Into a house where the blinds are closed
    To keep from seeing things she don't wanna know
    She pulls the blinds and looks out on the street
    The cool of the night takes the edge off the heat

    In the Jackson Cage
    Down in Jackson Cage
    You can try with all your might
    But you're reminded every night
    That you been judged and handed life
    Down in Jackson Cage

    Every day ends in wasted motion
    Just crossed swords on the killing floor
    To settle back is to settle without knowing
    The hard edge that you're settling for
    Because there's always just one more day
    And it's always gonna be that way
    Little girl you've been down here so long
    I can tell by the way that you move you belong to

    The Jackson Cage
    Down in Jackson Cage
    And it don't matter just what you say
    Are you tough enough to play the game they play
    Or will you just do your time and fade away
    Down into the Jackson Cage

    Baby there's nights when I dream of a better world
    But I wake up so downhearted girl
    I see you feeling so tired and confused
    I wonder what it's worth to me or you
    Just waiting to see some sun
    Never knowing if that day will ever come
    Left alone standing out on the street
    Till you become the hand that turns the key down in

    Jackson Cage
    Down in Jackson Cage
    Well darlin' can you understand
    The way that they will turn a man
    Into a stranger to waste away
    Down in the Jackson Cage
