Track Name: Cardboard Box
Trapped inside a cardboard box
We’ve got nowhere left to run
We've got nowhere left to hide

The stale air is running out
Our hearts are pumping hard
As we realize that time does fade

So well hope as we wait on
We hope that you’ll return
Take off everything they’ve put you on

You’ll take those bandages off
Remove the plastic and the tape
Rip it off as you rip off our pain

Don’t know the possibilities
So we’ll wait for that day
We’ll wait for it to go away

Final hours flew straight by
Like letters to the ocean
Uncatchable by man and space

Trapped inside a cardboard box
All our memories taped up
We’ll live and breathe them every day
