On the day she finally left me
She left one thing behind
Just a small box on the table
That she wanted me to find
There was something bad inside it
It was something that I should have left alone

Now everything is standing still
It was only my head that made it revolve
Everything was fine until
It was awful instead
Now watch me dissolve

It was mine now, something secret
Something precious and rare
Then it changed me and I liked it
Now I wish it wasn't there
Would you cancel my appointments?
Pretty sure I won't be coming in today 'cause

Everything is standing still
It was only my head that made it revolve
Everything was fine until
It was awful instead
Now watch me dissolve

Everything is standing still
It was only my head that made it revolve
Everything was fine until
It was awful instead
Now watch me dissolve

It's too late to say I'm sorry
Anyway it's not true
There's a small box on the table
And I left it there for you
And I really hope you like it
If you need me I'll be anywhere but here 'cause

Everything is standing still
It was only my head that made it revolve
Everything was fine until
It was awful instead
Now watch me dissolve

    General CommentI don't think the mysterious object in question is important - it signifies the ways that in the wake of a breakup, the other party now has all this power over you, knowing your most vulnerable places and the things you really care about, and if they wish they can really start to unmake you by pressing on those tender spots. The second verse could be about the emotions surrounding the relationship: "It was mine now, something secret / something precious and rare / then it changed me, and I liked it / now I wish it wasn't there."
