Outside the Box

Outside the Box

The box that we're thinking
outside of is shrinking
because we've only been thinking
from within all along

The times that we've wanted
are somewhat unwonted
and somewhat unrisen
with the rise of the dawn

The times that we've wanted
to leave our own pain
Those times never wanted
us anyway

We're deep in our prison,
still never unfree
Within our own prison
holding the key

Through bars of misfortune
Through chances unseen
Through tears of distortion
Through years that we dream

Through locks of compassion-
sheltered unfree
We'll take heaven or hell
to end misery

Now the box that we're thinking
outside of is gone
because we've only been thinking
from within all along

We've only been thinking
from within
all along.
