Well, for this one, we thought the best way to talk about it would be to simply give y'all the lyrics and be done with it. We hope you'll appreciate the irony as you're staring at your own personal box....


In days of young the box was fun
we laughed we cried we shat
We saws new things in black and white
we saws the queen's new hat
Now we sits alone
this box it's just like crack
Yes you have no unread messages
but we dares not turn our back

We writes a message
we wills it to reply
We writes another and then another
and then another day goes by
The humming buzz the ticking sound
the only noise we hear
The mind is numb the clock has rung
awoken all our fears

I wrote a note and sent it out on
the ether
and now I wait for your reply
I sit and watch the screen for hours
and then
another day has slipped away
The radiation emanating
feeds me
keeping me safe in its embrace
The glowing eye is always open
it's all I think of when I sleep
