Recorded in a laundry room in Fullerton, CA. Song by A. Tavella. Backing guitar and vox by David Freidlander.

lyrics

Oh Mr. Music Box, where did you find your soul?
They found you and they locked you up.
With your brain all tied, you made gold.
With your family tied, you made gold.
With your body tied, you made gold.

The clock rang.
You were shocked to hear some beauty,
In such a time frame,
When you drank to go to sleep and to stay awake.

And the next, Mr. Music Box
Traded a nickel for your song
You walk down the street, and you hear it played,
From the car of a man who is strong.
You can tell by his books he is strong.
You can tell by his slaves he is strong.

Your song played,
And you recognized the beauty,
That it used to contain,
Before you need a nickel for your son's pain.

Oh where did that soul really come from?
Goddamn we were saved by your hoots and your hollers.
See, he didn't sell his soul to the devil,
He sold it to the dollar.

See, he didn't sell his soul to the devil,
He sold it to the dollar.
