The Box (Flynn Johnny)

Rob lived in a box by the rails Only thing he knew, you don't fail When you live in a box by the rails Don't comb your hair, don't comb your tail Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me whole and leave my soul Leave me nothing, I don't need at all Nothing, I don't need at all He ate from the bins in the park Stayed out with the rats after dark Never left a trail, never made his mark When he ate with the rats after dark Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me whole and leave my soul Leave me nothing, I don't need at all Nothing, I don't need at all Calling on his friends, never made him sad Didn't want the things he never had It only made them feel so bad For having the things he never had Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me whole and leave my soul Leave me nothing, I don't need at all Nothing, I don't need at all If you stay in that box overnight And don't get out when it gets light There's not much lost of the secret life That's done wrong and it's never done right Now some more flowers grow The corn gets eaten by a few more crows And an old man's box is full of bones Won't see his footprints in the snow Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me whole and leave my soul Leave me nothing, I don't need at all Nothing, I don't need at all Sweep my mess away Leave my body, leave my bones Leave me whole and leave my soul Leave me nothing, I don't need at all Nothing, I don't need at all
