Heart Shaped Box

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I've been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I've been drawn into your magnet tar pit trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black
 
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice
 
Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby's breath
Broken hymen of 'Your Highness', I'm left black
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back
 
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey! Wait! I got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Your advice

I thought so too in the beginning, but I maybe there's more about this song. Post-modern literature is difficult.

“Heart shaped box” refers to her “heart” or sense of affection. She has locked him up in there naively; she may not actually love him as much as she’s in love with the idea of being in love. He doesn’t really seem to feel the same way about the whole thing.

He got the name from a box that Courtney once gave to him; the song was originally titled Heart-Shaped Coffin and was written for her.
