The lyrics were written by lasah and sung by ANÚNA, and are as follows:

Lying in this broken cage (lying in this broken cage),
I dreamed of you and me
Dancing beneath that apple tree
Lord, won't you save me from this sorrow
Running after shadows of innocence
Knowing they can't be reached (knowing they can't be reached)
Can't be reached...

Lying in this broken cage, I dreamed of you and me
Dancing beneath that old beautiful apple tree

Mother, I miss how you always kissed me goodnight
Father, I miss how you told me your gentle lies
Still I long for the memories of home

We’re running after the shadows of innocence,
Knowing they can’t be reached

Lying in this broken cage, I dreamed of you and me
Hearing a gunshot that shattered our fantasy

Lord, won’t you save me from all this sorrow and pain?
Lord, won’t you let me forgive my weakness and shame?
Still I long for the memories of home

We’re running after the shadows of innocence
Knowing they can’t be reached

In this cage,
In the end of childhood
