Trapped In A Box

Trapped in a box of tremendous  size
It distorts my vision, it closes my eyes
Attracts filthy flies and pollutes in the skies
It 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

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

Always wanting a different view
Instant gratification for you
Reality gone with a single click
I 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

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