"The thing that's most oppressive in our era is celebrity. And that's why people want to burn my house down. Celebrity is ugly. What it does is belittle real life. Which is where real heroism is." — Bono

Jack In A Box Lyrics

Delayed for a time, trip for an answer
We're in for a line, I can't think to carry on
We're able to chew it, chained for a speaker
And I won't move it, he's gonna have to carry on
I wait for the time when my tunes feel better than life
I know

Who will buy me, who will try me
Who will buy me, look
Jack in a box
Jack in a box

They shuffle and look, readin' your book
Look in their face, I don't
I said no, we know

Who will buy me, who will try me
Who will buy me
Jack in a box
Jack in a box

Let's go

Who will buy me, who will try me
Who will buy me up
Jack in a box
Jack in a box
Jack in a big box
Jack in the box
Jack in a box
Jack in a box
Jack in a big box
Jack in a big box

(This is an early song from U2 that was never released on an album or single but was played live)
