Woke up this morning

Closed in on all sides

Nothing doing

I feel resistance

As I open my eyes

Someone's fooling

I've found a way to break

Through this cellophane line

Cause I know what's going on

In my own mind

Am I living in a box

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box

Life goes in circles

Around and around circulation

I sometimes wonder

What's moving underground

I'm escaping

I've found a way ...

I've found a way ...

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box (living)

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box (living)

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box (living)

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living am I living am I living

Am I living am I living am I living

(In a box)

Am I living am I living

Am I living in cardboard box

Am I living in a box

Am I living am I living

Am I living in a cardboard box

Am I living in a box

    It's about someone living in a restrictive life which they've grown bored of and feel trapped by (boxed in). They dream of something better and can see it in their sight despite their life not allowing it. Hence the lines 'i feel resistance/as i open my eyes'
