Trapped In A Box

Play Video
  • Trapped in a box of tremendous size
    It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes
    Attracts filthy flies and pollutes in the skies
    Sucks up our lives and proliferates lies
    Trapped in a box

    Trapped in a box, four walls as sky
    Got a screen for a window about two feet wide
    My mind rides and slides as my circuits are fried
    No room for thought, use the box as my guide
    Trapped in a box

    Trapped in a box
    Watch the world as it flocks
    To life's paradox
    We're all trapped in a box

    Trapped in a box I'm not alone
    I know of others with a box as their home
    Light only enters from a crack or a hole
    This is not enough for a human to grow
    Trapped in a box

    [Chorus]
    Always wanting a different view
    Instant gratification for you
    Reality gone WITH a single click
    Just hope that that switch won't stick

    Trapped in a box my life becomes void
    All I thought for myself is now destroyed
    Controlling my mind, what to eat, what to buy
    Subliminal rules: how to live, how to die
    Trapped in a box

    [Chorus]
