about

Box Seattle, Washington

Box (noun) "B'aw'cks": A local band spawned from the OFH with aspirations like Death Cab and Modest Mouse before them. Led by Johnathan Stevens and Jackson Rudd who have been writing music together since they were wee lads in jr. high school. Heavily inspired by the Strokes and Radiohead with an obvious band geekiness that can't help but reveal itself. We're all about the dance so check us out! ... more

Track Name: Call My Own
I went to the store and I talked to the man
I said, "I want a boat that sails on the land"
"Sir you must be confused, ships only sail at sea,
and if you have a problem, don't take it up with me"

Well I stole the boat but the boat wouldn't move
I put it back on the dock and tied it up too
I don't want to be a captain or even a skipper too
I just wanted to own something I would never use

*I never owned anything
That I could call my own
I never owned that girl
I only took her home

I went to the pound and I asked for dog
who only eats flies and sits on a log
"sir you must be confused we don't have anything in
in fact I think you're thinking of an amphibian"

So I stole the dog and fed it only flies
it used to be so happy, but now it only cries
I said sorry to the dog, something I've learned as I've aged
is really I can only ever love things that are caged

*I never owned anything
That I could call my own
I never owned that girl
I only took her home
I never owned anything
That I could call my own
That girl's so nice
That girl's so kind

I went to the church and I talked to the priest
I said, "I want a god who only prays to me"
"Sir you must be confused, God has very little time,
but if you have a second, I'll put him on the line"

So I talked to God and God talked to me
as for who should pray to who we agreed to disagree
I said sorry to God about the dog and all the flies
about stealing that boat and telling only lies

But I asked God, "why did you put me
in a position where I have to own everything"
"Sorry" said god "something I've learned as I've aged
is really I can only ever l've things that are caged

*I never owned anything
That I could call my own
I never owned that girl
I only took her home
*I never owned anything
That I could call my own
That girl's so nice
That girl's so kind
Track Name: Ghost in the Hall
Walk and close your eyes from all you know
and see the world within you start to bend
and pretend that it's real

*I can see right through you, ghost
floating down the hallway
I can feel your presence, ghost
floating down the hallway
Buildings tall all soon will fall, return to the dirt
I can see right through you, ghost
floating down the hallway
Moss will cover all the Mosques, return to the dirt

Walk and close your eyes from all you know
and see the world within you start to bend
and pretend that it's real
Run from all the fears that you don't know
and feel the weight of history descend
and pretend that it's real

*I can see right through you, ghost
floating down the hallway
I can feel your presence, ghost
floating down the hallway
Buildings tall all soon will fall, return to the dirt
I can see right through you, ghost
floating down the hallway
Moss will cover all the Mosques, return to the dirt
Track Name: An Enemy
I went outside just to talk a lot to people I know not
Tell me if I might look straight back again
tell me once within, with my feet on the ground

*I'll escape without a single scratch
I've got the open mind, I've got the open hatch

The crustacean on the balcony
You know I asked him why he acts so superior
I just really wanna speak in his vernacular
So I went outside just to speak again
and someone asked me why I act so superior
I just really wanna speak in new vernacular

*I'll escape without a single scratch
I've got the open mind I've got the open hatch
I will melt like a popsicle
into an abyss where I have complete control

All these fishes are too cool for school
you know they really really are so superior
They don't even need shells like bottom feeders
They stare at my like I'm an enemy
You know they know that I'm so inferior
I just really want to speak in new vernacular

*Wait, what is wrong with me?
I feel so very tired
I feel so very very weak
I'll escape without a single scratch
without a single scratch
without a single single scratch
no no no no NO NO NO NO that won't be me!

I went outside just to talk a lot, I went outside
I went outside just to talk a lot to people I know not
on the other side

Now I now I feel so particular
It's like a billion billion billion billion billion
message in my mind
now I now I feel so spectacular-
-ly bright oooohh
