[Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
Uhh.. yeah
He just sits, and watches the people in the boxes
Everything he sees he absorbs and adopts it
He mimics and he mocks it

Really hates the box but he can't remember how to stop, it
Uhh, so he continues to watch it

Hoping that it'll give him somethin that he can box with
Or how the locksmith, see the box as, locked in the box
Ain't got the combination to unlock, it

That's why he watch-es, scared to look away
Cause at that moment, it might show him
What to take off the locks with

So he chained himself to the box, took a lock and then he locked it
Swallowed the combination and then forgot, it

As the doctors jot it all down, with they pens and pencils
The same ones that took away his voice
And just left this instrumental, like that


[Hook: Jonah Matranga] + (Lupe)
And he never lies (he never lies, he never lies, uhh)
And he never lies (uhh, he never lies, he never lies, no)
And he never lies (he never lies)
Cause he never said anything at all


[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
He just sits, and listens to the people in the boxes
Everything he hears he absorbs and adopts it
Anything not comin out the box he blocks it
See he loves the box and hope they never stop it
Anything the box tell him to do, he does it
Anything it tell him to get, he shops and he cops it
He protects the box, locks it in a box
When he goes to sleep, but he never sleeps
Cause he stays up to watch it, scared to look away
Cause at that moment, it might get stolen

And that's the last of the boxes
So he chained himself to the box, took a lock and then he locked it
Swallowed the combination and then forgot, it

As the doctors jot it all down, with they pens and pencils
The same ones that took away his voice
And just left this instrumental, like that


[Hook]

[Bridge: Lupe Fiasco]
(Anything at all..) He never lies
Uhh, and you can't tell me just who you are
You buyin them clothes just to hide those scars
You built that roof just to hide those stars
Now you can't take it back to the start
And you can't tell me just who you are
You buyin them clothes just to hide those scars
You built that roof just to hide those stars
Now you can't take it back to the start


[Hook]

[Outro: Lupe Fiasco]
(Anything at all.. anything at all..)
Uhh, and you can't tell me just who you are
You buyin them clothes just to hide those scars
You built that roof just to hide those stars
Now you can't take it back to the start
And you can't tell me just who you are
You buyin them clothes just to hide those scars
You built that roof just to hide those stars
Now you can't take it back to the start
