  • Woke up this mornin'
    Closed in on both sides
    Nothin' doin'
    I feel resistance

    As I open my eyes
    Someone's foolin'
    I found a way to break through this cellophane bag
    'Cause I know what's goin' on
    In your mind

    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box

    Life goes in circles
    Around and around
    Circulating
    I sometimes wonder

    What's movin' underground
    I'm escaping
    I found a way to break through this cellophane bag
    'Cause I know what's goin' on
    In my mind

    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box

    Livin'
    Ahh ha
    I found a way to break through this cellophane bag
    'Cause I know what's goin' on
    In your mind

    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box

    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a cardboard box

    I'm a livin' I'm a livin'....I'm a livin'
    I'm a livin', I'm a livin'....I'm a livin'
    I'm a livin' in a box
    I'm a livin' in a box...Writer/s: MARCUS VERE, STEVE PIGOTT
