Johnny Cash – Rusty Cage (THE Videoclip!)

Because I am anal about giving readers the whole experience I have found the video that goes with the Song Rusty Cage that I posted the lyrics for yesterday. It 2minutes 46 seconds and well worth the watch. I listed to the Soundgarden version as well but for some reason I prefer the Johnny Cash Version, it speaks more about me than the Soundgarden version does. The same goes with Hurt by Nine Inch Nails, Johnny Cash’s version is more emotive than emo and describes why I scratch myself in my own for of Self Harm (more on that some other time.) Anyway Here’s the video.

Rusty Cage

I designed this thinking about the Johnny Cash song Rusty Cage. The lyrics are kinda representative of where I am at the moment.

Rusty Cage as sung by Johnny Cash

You wired me awake
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
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Too cold to start a fire
I’m burning diesel, burning dinosaur bones
I’ll take the river down to still water
And ride a pack of dogs

I’m gonna break
I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run

Hits like a Phillips head Into my brain
It’s gonna be too dark
To sleep again Cutting my teeth on bars
And rusty chains,
I’m gonna break my Rusty cage and run

When the forest burns
Along the road Like God’s eyes In my headlights
When the dogs are looking
For their bones
And it’s raining icepicks
On your steel shore

I’m gonna break
I’m gonna break my
I’m gonna break my rusty cage and run
