Lyrics
Intro: I mean, the first step to thinking outside of the box is eliminating binary thinking. It's pretty much a way of classifying everything into one of only two groups--either you're in Group A or you're in Group B, either you're with me or you're against me. And what happens is this leads to a lot of misunderstanding and conflict. And people don't understand there are varying degrees; not everything is plain and simple, black and white. Chorus: Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Verse 1: Society is trying to place me in a category because once I'm in a box, they can silence or can ignore me I'm a more of a fan of the allegory rather than the standard story Not every person is self-explanatory You can't store me, I exceed your capacity and your memory, can't agree on a class for me But you forcefully proceed haphazardly with your core beliefs, G2Z is shackle-free No authority, Ph.D.'s in academies can impact me with skewed statistics Manipulating numbers just to prove some thesis Gullibility is our human weakness Individuality, they remove the pieces Thieves to our uniqueness, they drop us in factions Fabricating conflict, a popular action That's the task required by the box that you're trapped in, what? Chorus: Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Verse 2: "We are on your side, but they are against you" Conquer and divide, these are blatant attempts to cover up the lies, manipulating your mental Crumbling your mind, it remains detrimental to let them tempt you with hypnotic rhetoric If anyone defends you, it's not your delegate They pretend to with their mocked benevolence Aiming at your heart as a spot for reference Forgot the reverend Purchase his property to get God's deliverance We act as if our leaders are all-magnificent They are human too, they are not omnipotent but they become so when they enclose you Propaganda unfolds while they provoke you Exerting their control from a remote booth Escape from the box and this you will get exposed to, what? Chorus: Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Breakdown 1: Trapped in, trapped up in a box Trapped in, trapped up in a box Trapped in, trapped up in a box Trapped in Breakdown 2: In a box, in a box, in a box, in a box In a box, in a box, in a box, in a box In a box, in a box, in a box, in a box In a box, in a box, in a box, in a box Chorus: Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped in... Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Trapped up in a box Outro: G2Z
