Jack in the box

It's been seven years now, living in this box
Closed in on all sides, no light, just dark
He kept me under the bed, I'd pray for it to stop
He'd lock me safely away, and lie on top
Pop the latches open the hatches
Out comes Jack in the box
Doing tricks and taking licks
Out comes Jack in the box
I was an uncut marionette hanging by steel cable threads
I was a shadow dancer a thousand shades of red
There's too much light it's far too bright
I things much too clearly
There's too much light, it far too bright
Weary, oh so weary
If this is all of life outside
Please put me where I am happy
Where I won't know what to think of this
Black in black, almost sleeping
Pop the latches open the hatches, out comes jack in the box
Doing tricks and taking licks, out comes jack in the box
Please lock me up
Shut me up
Shut up your jack in the box
