you don't know jack (chorus)

Jack in a box doesn't always show what he needs

its like he wants to escape but too attached to leave home

wind him up and he will put on a brave face

springing back and fourth

hiding the fact he feels alone

call this lost boy a joker, a class clown

born to perform and found were death is loud

he welcomes you with open hands

until the door closes again
