lyrics

Look at the box that has been given to me
Was it given by the god of storms, oh definitely!
Every time it's opened rain pours down on my head
Then I get depressed start wishing that I was dead
But I cannot help myself I have to look inside
Open it up again and feel the tears start building behind my eyes

This is my Pandora's box

Pictures of smiles and laughs are now howls and cries
Cute bunnies are slithering things in disguise
Creeping things with a slime of dark and gray despair
Vampire bats replace the doves in the air
The blessing of love has become the plague of sorrow and pain
The sunshine has been turned into black clouds filled with rain

This is my Pandora's Box

I hear the roars and screams and in the corner I mope
The beasts surround me in the dark I cannot cope
Standing on the chair I start to tighten the rope
When out of the box flies a bird called "Hope"

Fly to me, bird of hope

I must depart with this once beautiful gift
Our love for each other turned out to be myth
All of the horrible things are crushed underfoot
Items of heartbreak become black smoke and soot
Flames consume the box that causes suffering
As my gift from Zeus become a burnt offering

This is my Pandora's box
