Inside of a room there’s a cage, there’s a cage
It’s a-made out of chain and glass
It’s about forty feet high and three feet wide
It was built to last

It’s against a brick wall in an old muddy corner
Of a basement tunnel room
There’s a man in the cage in the old, muddy corner
He’s asleep, but he’ll wake up soon

Oh won’t you be there with me for it, tonight?
In this hut-to-hut witch hunt, down the tunnels of Old Yellowcake
Where all the souls in a city go drowning by starlight
Where each choice you make it’s a fierce firefight, it’s a new mistake?

—Rasputina, In Old Yellowcake
