Hodgson, Roger – Open the Door - Death and a Zoo
Type of Spiritual Experience
Roger Hodgson of Supertramp Brings Sold Out Crowd to Their Feet By Kathy Stockbridge On Oct 10, 2017
Another number that truly impressed me and brought me to another place was “Death and a Zoo” from Hodgson’s fourth solo album, Open the Door. Not only could you imagine what it would be like, you could feel through the music the question he posed – as a wild animal faced with the choice of death or living your life out in a zoo, which would you chose?
........... there's cages and there's cages.....................
A description of the experience
Hey what would you do
Caught between Death - Death and a Zoo?
What if your world was stuck in a cage -
Would you feel rage boy?
Caught in a crossfire
Stung by the cold wire
Would it feel lonely?
Hey what would you give
So that your heart in freedom could live?
What if your love was stuck in a cage
Hey don't you feel rage boy?
Caught in a landslide
Where does the child hide?
Oh does he feel lonely?
So cold on the inside
Where does the Sun hide?
Oh don't it feel lonely?
Caught in a man's dream
Silent the heart scream
Don't feel lonely?
