Lyrics

"Boxed In"
Music & Lyrics by Scott Cooley.

All day long, we stare and squares and screens

At night we go to square homes, on squares of land

And watch TVs with TV dinners in our laps

Only to fall asleep and have square dreams


Boxed in..........are we bound for the recycle bin?

Will the one with the most boxes win?

Or are we just livin’ in sin?

No, I think we’re boxed in, just boxed in


We’re all square pegs in a round world

With ninety degree angles, and in need of our borders

Who says rectangles are the natural order ?

Why can’t we get round, or at least curled ?


Boxed in..........are we bound for the recycle bin?

Will the one with the most boxes win?

Or are we just livin’ in sin?

No, I think we’re boxed in, just boxed in


No one thinks outside, we’re all afraid to commit

We love to categorize, and make everything fit

In gated communities, the fences are proof

We’re cagin’ ourselves like animals in a zoo


Boxed in..........are we bound for the recycle bin?

Will the one with the most boxes win?

Or are we just livin’ in sin?

No, I think we’re boxed in, just boxed in


Boxed in..........are we bound for the recycle bin?

Will the one with the most boxes win?

Or are we just livin’ in sin?

No, I think we’re boxed in, yeah, just boxed in


All day long, we stare and squares and screens

Brief Description

Harmonica chugs along to drive this mid-tempo, folksy song which offers a complaining perspective on an observation of a trending phenomenon that represents an alarmingly negative societal change.
