box lyrics – all

i live in a box. i live on a one way street, but i don’t mind.
’cause i live alone. n*body has to share my home.
and if i could choose i might pick a bigger box
but that’s all i’d change, until i get a credit card
my home on the range is underneath my black hat
until i wake up

i will not be watching you so you should not be watching me

i’ve got what i need. i’ve got a car that doesn’t work.
i’ve got blood to bleed. i’ve got a bar of soap. i’ve got shampoo too
so i look like me but i smell like you.
i won the n*bel prize. i made a thinner dime.
you know i’ll get my act together when i find the time
but right now i think that living is a place to lie down.
you see i rule the dirt, so i’m the king of this town.

i live in the dark. i live in the silence, and i can say
that i see and hear how much more than the average bear
and if i could choose i might pick a darker void
but that’s all i’d change, until i get a bigger club
my home on the range is somewhere in the closet,
until i wake up.

i will not be watching you so you should not be watching me

so here’s what we’ve got. you tell me what i am.
i’ll tell you what i am not. you tell me what i’m not.
i’ll tell you what i am. we’ll both scratch our heads
like we give a d*mn. please tell me who comes out ahead
was it me or you? was it me or you? (probably you)

i live in my skull. i’m under my eyelids. you can’t touch me.
’cause i’m fast asleep. you wouldn’t like the friends i keep.
and i could choose i might pick a larger head
but that’s all i’d change, until i get a safe way out.
my home on the range is right behind my eyeb*lls.
and don’t you dare wake me up.
