Magical Box

When I was 17, something on the screen
Teach me how to think to be a plastic queen

They said the tube’s magical, some said it’s quizzical
To me it’s ethereal so we agree that’s prodigal

I don’t know why I need it for
I just can’t run hide or ignore
Hypodermic a little pinprick
Epidemic being a belief

Now I’m 24, and my soul was sold
To the brand new god that I found inside the box
