Lyrics
DON't BOX YOURSELF

You find yourself just reading all the headlines
never diggin' too deep for a cause
Bahamas, cell phones, car phones on plastic
and golf in your spare time
You say "don't bring me down 'cause the war don't exist in my town"

Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself
All the way in

You find yourself just protecting your investments
Your day is governed by returns you may or may not see
These ideologies grow and flow along side your assets
But don't be surprised if the war finds it's way to your town

Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself
All the way in
All the way in

Now don't get me wrong I ain't some kind of ethical beacon
As a matter of fact I have some bones of my own
If you look around we're all self serving and driven
But I don't pretend that the war doesn't live in my town

Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself
All the way in
Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself, Don't box yourself
All the way in
All the way in
