Track 1 from 'The Box'


"Jason sits before a flickering television in a shady bedsit. A loner, he has all but given up on life. Unbeknownst to him, his fragile grip on reality is about to slip."

...it's like the world you used to know
When mother earth she opened your eyes
Some things have changed and some things remain the same

But all too soon we lose those eyes
The warmth of ignorance no longer clouds our minds
The veil of truth begins to descend
Over those eyes

The man in the chair he is closing his eyes
Thinking about the youth he left behind
It's funny how things change and some things remain the same

Chat Show Host
And all too often our children die
We lose that infant feeling
We never say goodbye

The veil of truth is about to descend
Over his eyes
