The Cinematic Orchestra – A Caged Bird/Imitations of Life (feat. Roots Manuva) (Lyrics)

“British experimental pioneers The Cinematic Orchestra have returned 12 years on from their last full-length album; they’ll be releasing a new LP called To Believe on March 15th. Aside from reuniting The Cinematic Orchestra’s Jason Swinscoe and longtime partner Dominic Smith, the album will feature the likes of Moses Sumney, Roots Manuva, Heidi Vogel, Grey Reverend, Dorian Concept and Tawiah, along with strings by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.

With the announcement they have shared the Roots Manuva featuring ‘A Caged Bird/Imitations Of Life’, a track which instantly picks up the mantle of their previous work and pushes it forwards. Hand claps and shivering piano chords set the stage for a glaze of strings, setting a wide-angle scene into which Roots’ contemplations are ejected with sorrow and effusion. ‘A Caged Bird/Imitations Of Life’ plays out like a birds-eye view of society, in which we hover over a mass of people “helpless in the entity,” as Roots describes our futile attempts to gain ground in an unfair game. The collaboration between these two artists is no less powerful than it was when they first entwined almost two decades ago, and suggests that To Believe will be yet another engulfing listen from The Cinematic Orchestra.” – The 405, Rob Hakimian, 16 January 2019

♪ lyrics ♪

Artists in the ground found an infusionary
Fought man linguistic scanter
Helpless in the entity
See the caged bird
At the bosom of the angry short fall
One ‌finds a ‌fistful
All engaging
All engaging
Perfection is in that non perfection, and
I see queen, I see king, I see king, I see queen, well
None of you know my kingdomanium
Last chance to attract it
Last chance to retract it

Why would you hide from yourself
Belief is here to f‌ind you
Why would you hide from yourself
Belief is here to f‌ind you

Well, I pick up my foot and do those things
Improve thyself, improve with things
I thank you for the healing in
Wings of meditation
Situation is strange to us
Stranger things are claiming us
I’ve been told we’ve easily
As easy as the breathing be
Not so, never so, she’s been told, she don’t sold a part of her soul
How the hell would we let it go, how the hell would we ever know
Now and then and here and then, claim to be my bestest friend
It’s just the word she’s saying it, there ain’t no returning now
There ain’t no returning now

Why would you hide from yourself
Belief is here to f‌ind you
Why would you hide from yourself
Belief is here to f‌ind you

Well, I pick up my foot and do those things
Improve those, improve with things
I thank you for the healing in
Wings of meditation
Situation is strange to us
Stranger things are calling us
I’ve been told we’ve easily
As easy as the breathing be
