From the recording At the Railroad Station


The Elephant's in the Room

It was smooth and routine
till he came in the room
but now it’s getting mean
and he’s filling me with gloom

Cause the elephant’s in the room
I hope that he leaves it soon
I’ve got to sweep the dirty floor
close and bolt all the doors
cause the elephant’s in the room
and all he does is loom
he’s completely unconcerned
you’d think I would have learned

I thought they were endangered
I thought they’d leave me alone
this has been a changer
now I’m taking back my own

Someone once said
that time will heal all wounds
unless of course you’re dead
or an elephant’s in the room
