In your little box

 
 

We met in late 2001
The future had let everyone down
We thought it would be one of affection
But we were dead wrong

And I thought everything was over
Struggled to keep myself sober
As the world shrunk down
Into the size of a box

And we’ve stopped being waterproof
Stopped taking our shirts off at parties
Stopped caring about the truth
It’s not like anyone’s going to jail

You don’t listen to what I say
And I’ve stopped saying anything
With that blue tint on your stupid face
In your little box

In your little box

We found out we were all a bunch of foxes
And we all got on our soapboxes
A thousand voices screaming to a thousand voices

And now they’re tracking our every call
And the world has gotten so small
And no one believes in anything bigger than themselves

And we’ve stopped being waterproof
Stopped taking our shirts off at parties
Stopped caring about the truth
It’s not like anyone’s going to jail

You don’t listen to what I say
And I’ve stopped saying anything
With that blue tint on your stupid face
In your little box

In your little box

You see nothing in the window
But a reflection of yourself
And you could have gotten something
But you wanted something else

And one of these days you’re gonna grow old
And the boys won’t follow you home
You pissed your life away
Staring at that phone

And we’ve stopped being waterproof
Stopped taking our shirts off at parties
Stopped caring about the truth
It’s not like anyone’s going to jail

You’ve stopped listening to what I say
And I’ve stopped saying anything
With that blue tint on your stupid face
In your little box

In your little box
