    the sun was shining
    but there were clouds
    it came down
    and he came down
    i said, “hey, man, what am i supposed to do with this seven-sided box?”
    i didn’t notice what i was saying at first
    so he didn’t really tell me
    or maybe i didn’t understand
    he wasn’t a man, though
    but he didn’t really tell me
    so i’m not really sure what the deal is with the seven-sided box
    he said i could use it with friends
    he said if i listened
    he said this is the seven-sided box
    “well, i can see that”
    the clouds passed
    and he said you got any friends?
    i just wanted to know what it did
    “what’s it for?”
    so i said i know people
    but he said, come on, everybody’s got friends
    “my, what big eyes you have”
    that’s not the way it works though
    clouds and sunlight
    not everybody
    he said you must be a friend to somebody
    i just wanted to know
    i tried to listen
    when it came down, sounds could be heard
    some things were clear
    but what was the deal with the seven-sided box?
    there’s always a side you can’t see, isn’t there?
    what is it for?
    huge eyes, i tell you
    he said he had all day
    “of course i got friends”
    that’s a strange number of sides for a box to have
    he wasn’t from around here
    i got a few friends, anyway
    he said he was
    “you’ll be here for quite a while, won’t you?”
    i gotta go get my friends
    he said there’s always a side you can’t see
    no, but really, i have good friends
    they listen
    not as sunny, but lighter
    and that’s not really the way it works, but i think he knew that
    he said here, learn the seven-sided box
    not a man
    he said i could already hear it
    the seven-sided box
    “what is it for?”
    listen with your friends
    more light
    listen to your friends
    more light
    it’s harder to make a decision when you can’t see every side, but i doubt that was the point
    listen lighter
    everybody knows people
    he said you already kind of listen
    the important part really is wanting to listen
    out of the sky, he didn’t just walk up to me
    or through the sky
    or from the sky
    the guy was tall
