The Riff Songfacts reports that the title of Dave Matthews Band's eighth album comes from a line in this song: "Sitting in a box. Away from the world out there." According to Matthews, it relates to the idea that we are born and die alone and that "our body is our box."
Funny how time slips away
Looking at the cracks creeping across across my face
I remember the little kid living in here
He'll be living in here probably until I'm dead
