I’m Not Sayin’ (Glass Cage)

Posted August 5, 2001, 4:20 p.m.

I’m not sayin’
I expect any of this to go anywhere
But hey, I’m always one
To give it a good go
I’ve never been accused
Of not trying hard enough
Even when I’m as tired of trying
As I am today
I’m not sayin’
Anything I haven’t said
A million times before

And I’m sittin’ here
In a glass cage in the middle of
A crowded room
A place where I can look
But never touch
I reach out
My breath just fogs the window
Nobody cares
Nobody even sees me
Looking back at them
With this fiery dream in my eye

‘Cause I’m not sayin’
Anything I haven’t said
A million times before

I’m not sayin’
I expect anything from any of this
But you’ve made me think that
Maybe it’s worth a try
I don’t know why I bother
To feel the way I do
When I’m as tired of trying
As I am today
I’m not sayin’
Anything I haven’t said
A million times before

So I’m sittin’ here
In a glass cage in the middle of
A crowded room
I can see the warmth I doubt
I’ll ever feel
I reach out
My breath just fogs the window
Nobody cares
Nobody even knows I’m there
Staring out at them
With colder and colder eyes

I’m not sayin’
I expect any of this
To go anywhere

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
