Pandora's Box

By Bruce Clifford

Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box
I think we should let it slide and keep it warm and locked
Once upon a time there was a day when we all wore the same sock
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box

Curiosity has killed a few, but why take this leap
You dream about it during the day and live it when you sleep
Once upon a time there was a place that most of us have forgot
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box
Throw away the key and keep your distance from Pandora's Box

Pandora's Box won't set you free
Pandora's Box changes history
Pandora's Box will break you down
Pandora's Box makes no sound

Memories of an immortal place and running for the hills
You take your toys and indigo cloth that's scattered with your pills
Once upon a time there was void that no man alone can create
Maybe if we all stayed away we would have found the one break
If we left this all to fate we would not have been consumed by this fox
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box

Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box
I think we should let it slide and keep it warm and locked
Once upon a time there was a day when we all wore the same sock
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box
Maybe we should all stay away from Pandora's Box

Comment: Interesting. Clearly a lot of work. What does the line mean "Once upon a time there was a day when we all wore the same sock"? Makes me think of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Ultimately I am mystified.
