​Falling Boxes (They Never Really Fell)

This song is by Papermill.

In a corner of the world
There's a ship that's setting sail,
In a corner of my room
Books are left there to bewail.

I put my hand beneath my globe
Looks like the oceans are not so wide
But the feel I get is not quite like
Having the whole world in my palm.

In the new world it's half past 4
And I don't know what's going on
Safe in their den it's half past 10
I'm afraid I know what's going on

I want to hear these machines cry
I'm over obsessed with control
You don't realize these machines lie
They manipulate what you think to know
I want to see these machines die
I'm over obsessed with their lives

Muddled up by dull details
Like boxes falling from a shelf
Levelling truth, half-truth and lies
A thousand victims in any word

In the new world it's half past 4
And I don't know what's going on
There where they stand it's half past 10
I'm afraid I know what's going on

I want to hear these machines cry
I'm over obsessed with control
You don't realize these machines lie
They manipulate what you think to know
I want to see these machines die
I'm over obsessed with their lives

Most of all I'm obsessed with their lies
Lies
Lies
Lies
