Music video by the group "Living In A Box" performing the song "Living In A Box".

Living in a Box were a British band from the late 1980s. Their biggest hit? Living in a Box. No need to think much.

The song was used in a Vodafone TV commercial during the second half of 2013, so younger people may remember it from that.

Woah oh

Woke up this morning, closed in on all sides, nothing doing
I feel resistance as I open my eyes, someone's fooling
I've found a way to break through this cellophane line
'Cause I know what's going on in my own mind

Am I living in a box?, am I living in a cardboard box?
Am I living in a box? am I living in a cardboard box?
Am I living in a box?

Life goes in circles, around and around, circulating
I sometimes wonder what's moving underground, I'm escaping
I've found a way to break through this cellophane line
'Cause I know what's going on in my own mind

Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box, woh oh

(Living)
I can't stand another (living), oh oh
(Living)
Woh, oh oh

I've found a way to break through this cellophane line
'Cause I know what's going on in my own mind

Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box (living), am I living in a cardboard box (living)
Am I living in a box (living), am I living, am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living, am I living, am I living
Am I living, am I living, am I living
(Am I living in a box) am I living, am I living
(Am I living in a cardboard box) am I living
(Am I living in a box) am I living, am I living
Am I living in a cardboard box
Am I living in a box






CLOSED IN= Enclosed; trapped inside.

NOTHING DOING= Definitely no! Absolutely not! No way!

FOOLING= Deceiving; playing the fool, doing stupid things.

CELLOPHANE= A thin transparent kind of plastic.

GOING ON= Happening.

CARDBOARD= A kind of strong paper (see picture)

WONDER= If you wonder something, you don't know it but are very curious or/and doubtful about it.

UNDERGROUND= Under the surface, hidden. Things happening underground are things that are happening but they are not easy to notice because they are hidden or subtle.

CAN'T STAND= Hate.

 

Well if someone ever says to you: What!do you live in a cardboard box? They're usually asking you if you're a very sheltered, solitary person, that you don't notice or know about things going on around you.

In regards to the song, he's just meaning he's trapped by someone or something and looking for a way out, which he says he finds when he refers to escaping the cellophane bag.
