lyrics

Corridors- Niall Connolly

We live in boxes, in boxes on boxes,
It's a high price to pay, for a little privacy.
Still, I've got door handles and curtains,
Two rooms and three keys.
I've come with time to believe,
These things necessities.

Newborn neighbour cries,
I come home late,
I try to come home quiet,
And in the mornings,
We nod and smile,
In the corridors.

The days on the calendar,
In boxes aligned,
Like these voices as they bounce,
Around this high-rise.
We think we've got them figured out,
Based on our time,
Till we get our comeuppance,
And they take us by surprise

Downstairs neighbours fight,
When to call it in, or just let it go by,
And in the morning we nod and smile,
In the corridors.

Walking through the cemetery,
Marvel at the marble carved memories.
Downtown a new tower rising,
Through the gaping wound on the horizon,
Reminding us if we need reminding,
That all is fragile use your time well.

We are more than these mortgaged boxes,
More, than this sheet rock corridor,
Yeah, we are more,
Than these corridors.

We live in boxes,
In boxes we'll go.
