Living In Boxes

from by The Autumn Isles

lyrics

Windows open, look out to see all the wonder, and kind words spoken, a fateful encounter with friends on the course, to fractured relations. I can see you, self-centered perspectives, living in boxes and grinding your teeth, there’s a dead-end street in the shape of this.

Warm smiles, handshakes, a common request with agendas. Rejection, tooth ache, sincerity led to distraction with cheers, it drags me under. I can see you, self-centered perspective, living in boxes and grinding your teeth, there’s a dead-end street in the shape of this.

Destined to feel, all the intentions that make it so real, so justified brandishing knives at the bridge and divide.

And so there’s a place for the memories and songs that you sing.
It drags me under, and I can see you, self-centered perspective, living in boxes and grinding your teeth, there’s a dead-end street in the shape of, a common map that we tear off , there’s a dead end street in the shape of this.
