Liner Notes: 

This is a strange amalgam of references to lateral thinking, mysteries and lying.

Lyrics: 

Pandora’s Box

Verse 1
If a tree falls in the forest
Does it really make a sound
If there is no one to hear it
As it crashes to the ground?

Verse 2
For a chicken you need an egg
For an egg you need a hen
This kind of contemplation
Always makes me think of Zen

Bridge:
You’re a dilemma and a paradox
You are Pandora’s Box

Chorus:
Just when I think I know you
I get a big surprise
I find everything you’ve told me
Is just a pack of lies

Verse 3
Sometimes I think our love is like
The sound of one hand clapping
I think we’re getting somewhere, but
It’s just ineffectual flapping

Bridge:
You’re a dilemma and a paradox
You are Pandora’s Box

Chorus:
Just when I think I know you
I get a big surprise
I find everything you’ve told me
Is just a pack of lies



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Cleverly worded. Breathes new perspective into opening Pandora's box. It's good.

What a clever turn of phrase-- the relationship as Pandora's box. Solid lyric.
