A Trick of the Tail album at
Genesis', "The Musical Box"
The Lyrics:
Entire Song
The reason is that this song is a story about a young murderess who kills the boy and his body is trapped in The Musical Box. Once she (The Murderer) opens the Musical Box...she sees the boy she murdered. He grows old...but doesn't grow up, then The Nurse who told her stories that never came true, comes in and kills both the murderer and the spirit!
