And he never lies
And he never lies

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

So he continues to watch it
Hopin' that it'll give him somethin' that he can box with
Or how the locksmith see the boxes locked in the box
Ain't got the combination to unlock it

That's why he watches, scared to look away
'Cause at that moment, it might show him
What to take off the locks with
So he chained his-self 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

And he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies)
And he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies, no)
And he never lies
(He never lies)
'Cause he never said anything at all

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 to 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 his-self 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
Just left this instrumental like that

And he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies)
And he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies, no)

And he never lies
(He never lies)
'Cause he never said anything at all
Anything at all
(He never lies)

And you can't tell me just who you are
You burn 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 burn 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 he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies)
And he never lies
(He never lies, he never lies, no)

And he never lies
(He never lies)
'Cause he never said anything at all
Anything at all, anything at all

And you can't tell me just who you are
You burn 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 burn 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
(I will never lie)
You burn them clothes just to hide those scars
(I will never lie)
I will never lie, I will never lie
