​Eyes On The Box

This song is by Cannonball Statman and appears on the album 22 (2015).

Let's be lonely together, before you go back in the box.
Life was always your imaginary friend, and I was always the one you loved.
And why you're going back, I don't know
But I hope it's nothing to do with me.
I hope I haven't hurt you by being who I wanted to be.

As I stand back, and watch you enter the point of no return,
I whisper softly that no matter what happens,
I'll keep all eyes on the box.

I remember the time you lost your vision, and got it back the next day.
I wonder what you're seeing now, or is it impossible to say?
We had a good long time outside of that thing
But I guess you like being a square.
I guess we're all really something like that, but it's nice to get some fresh air.

As I wonder all these things, I will forget to say goodbye.
I'll only whisper that no matter what happens,
I'll keep all eyes on the box.

I remember the days you first stopped wondering about heaven and hell.
Maybe one of them will suck you in, or maybe not. But who cares, for now?
I remember the time you started wondering about how long it takes
To be respected in a world where no one can even accept their own mistakes.

And why you're going back, I don't know
But I hope it's nothing to do with me.
I only know that no matter what happens,
I'll keep all eyes on the box.
