Elysian Fields – Jack In The Box lyrics

It's been seven years now
Living in this box
Closed in on all sides
No light, just dark
He kept me under the bed
I'd pray for it to stop
He's lock me safely away
And lie on top
Pop the latches, open the hatches
Out comes Jack in the Box
Doing tricks and taking licks
Out comes Jack in the Box
I was an uncut marionette
Hanging by his steel cable thread
I was a shadow dancer
A thousand shakes of red
There's too much light, it's far too bright
I see things much too clearly
There's too much light, it's far too bright
Oh so weary
Pop the latches, open the hatches
Out comes Jack in the Box
Doing tricks and taking licks
Out comes Jack in the Box
If this is all of life outside
Please put me where I'm happy
Where I won't know what to think of this
Black and black, almost sleeping
Please lock me up
Shut me up
Shut up
Jack in the Box
Please lock me up
Shut me down
Jack in the Box
