Boxes

Album: Where You Stand (2013)
  • When everything
    When everything was out of reach
    The sky was up
    The ground was right below our feet

    We played in toes
    We played in toes
    Cardboard boxes
    We played in boxes
    We played in boxes
    Cardboard boxes

    We wasted time
    We wasted time before we knew
    Don't punch the clock
    Or time will run away with you

    We live in boxes
    We live in boxes
    Concrete boxes
    We live in boxes
    We live in boxes
    Concrete boxes

    Now your childhood is over
    You're a man they have said
    You silently shoulder
    All the plans they have made
    You pack down your boxes and ask
    Who am I?

    The biggest trick
    The biggest trick they play on you
    To make you think
    The show won't go on without you

    We go in boxes
    We go in boxes
    Wooden boss
    We go in boxes
    We go in boxes
    Wooden boxes

    Now the room has been emptied
    I'm alone in my bed
    The heart is a box
    Which the soul has fled
    The spell has been broken
    And the last word is said Writer/s: FRANCIS HEALY, ANDREW THOMAS DUNLOP
