The Box

 

Song taken from The Rush (album)

[HOOK]
They tried to put me in a box
But I can’t be contained
They chopped my locks
Then the next day it rained
I burst out the box when the floodgates where broken
The guard said he thought I was joking
But the jokes on …
Put me in a box
But I can’t be contained
Chop my locks
Then next day it rains
I burst out the box when the floodgates were broken
The judge said he thought I was joking
But the jokes on …

[VERSE 1]
Him or her
Those to which I refer
Prefer to see me shackled and locked down you ‘hurr’
They concur with the system and I don’t
Behave like the modern day slave that I won’t
Associate myself with
In any shape form or pattern
They’re the same ones who blew up Manhattan
For which team are you battin’
You’re full of shit
I had enough of your chattin’
I’m the black Davy Jones with the Kracken
Lets get to crackin’

[HOOK]

[VERSE 2]
You …
I’m crackin’
Breaking your laws
Exposing you for each n’
All of your flaws
I slide up your pyramid scheme
Illuminate the unilluminated
Turn your light to mere a gleam
The remora fish swimming up of your slipstream
Ha ha
Catch me if you can …
I know you probably wanna make me disappear
‘Cause I don’t bow down to no man
Swinging with the axe of Conan
Briggitte holding my hand
Fuck institutions the whole shit is a scam
You dummy
Them politics
Just bollux and tricks
Thats why I got respect for all the hippies in the sticks

[HOOK]

[OUTRO]
The jokes on you
