Life inside the music box ain't easy
The mallets hit
The gears are always turning
And everyone inside the mechanism

Is yearning to get out
And sing another melody completely
So different from the one they're always singing
I close my eyes and think that I have found me
But then I feel mortality surround me
I want to sing another melody
So different from the one I always sing
But when I do the dishes
I run the water very very very hot

Life inside the music box ain't easy
The mallets hit
The gears are always turning
And everyone inside the mechanism

Is yearning to get out
And sing another melody completely
So different from the one they're always singing
I close my eyes and think that I have found me
But then I feel mortality surround me
I want to sing another melody
So different from the one I always sing
But when I do the dishes
I run the water very very very hot
