I know a guy who lives in a box
He built it himself of cement and rocks
And he'll never come out though I beg and plead
He's got all that he wants if not all that he needs
You see he couldn't take friends so he's never alone
And he's never bothered in his cubic home
Living in a box
Every night and day
Living in a box
And I'm here to stay
Living in a box
There's no escape
And though I tries I can never get away, HEY!
Out in my box that is also my van
Just another six weeks of one night stands
And I can't get away, cause it's where that I go
From the van to the club to our nightly hotel
You see it takes me to places, even took me to you
I got no choice, I gotta pay my dues
Worth it or not, there's no escape from my cell
One hour of fun for twenty three of Hell
Living in a box for so long
I got to find my way out to go on
And what I got is no time for you
I'm in my box without a thing to do
Look at youself, you're living the same
Locked behind walls that your brother has made
You were born, you work in a box, you live in a box
AND YOU'LL DIE IN A BOX
So much more that outside your sphere
But you walk on by never knowing how near
So much more than the walls do show
But if you;re not very careful then you'll never know!

    General CommentThis song's gotta be about ignorance, right? People surround themselves into a little box everyday, and they stay there their whole lives. And if you're not careful, you might find yourself living in your own metaphorical box (of ignorance). Right?

    General CommentAside from the fact that a bunch of these lyrics are off or missing, the song is still good. I don't think it's about ignorance, so much. I think it's more about the monotony of life. You get up in your box of a house, get in your box of a car. Drive to your box at the office in your box cubicle. Go home to your box, sleep, get up and do it again.
