Elephant In The Room

ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM - Written by Carroll Bryant 



Elephants can fly in purgatory
Though I don’t know why
That’s just the way this nightmare goes

Sure enough you called my bluff
Now spiders crawl upside the junk
That you left behind and I can’t find my sanity

Jackals are watching me, my every move
Though I see a lazy sky
The dawn is looking blue

Sure to hell I smell the smell
You know me all too well
Like it would even matter that leaving me just leaves me flattered

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Danger is as careful as danger allows
Though purgatory darkens
With every twist and turn

Damn it all you found me
Standing in the corner
Where everything you ever loved is standing there beside me

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Running down a hallway that keeps warping at my feet
I know it isn’t real
I know that I am still asleep
Trying every doorknob that is locked inside itself
I know it isn’t real
It’s just a vision of my future

Damn it to hell when I can tell
That you know me all too well
Like it would even matter that leaving me just leaves me flattered

And I’m sinking inside of this empty house
Chasing hallucinations and a gimpy mouse
Every step I take I feel the misery
I will name him little memory
Something more than what you left for me

Elephants can fly in hell
