Pandora’s Box describes facing a choice that would forever change many lives. Pandora welcomes the singer back, knowing the powerful choice is hers to make. The box is opened, and “nothing will ever be the same again.”

Lyrics

Pandora beckons me closer still
Her bejeweled box waits on her lap
She offers a knowing smile, extends her hand
Enchanted, she welcomes me back

Now I see she has no lock, I had pictured one there
As I had worked to lock myself away
My wounds I offer up as a prayer
Pain will undo me either way

Nothing will ever be the same
Nothing can ever be the same
Nothing will ever be the same again
You cannot return, she says

Pandora gently lays her box at my feet
I no longer know my voice
The defining moment is at hand
Lead us not into this choice

The lid lifts easily as lightning seizes the sky
The cost can never once be fully known
Ripples of the tidal wave
And the shattering is my own

Nothing will ever be the same
Nothing will ever be the same
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing
Nothing will ever be the same
Nothing can ever be the same again

You cannot return, she says
