THE ELEPHANT

From Shadowland: Music For Pilobolus

 

YOU ARE FULL OF THE ANIMAL

YOU DRINK THE BLOOD AND YOU WEAR THEIR WOOL

THE PASSIVE CATTLE AND THE LOYAL OX

THEY PLOW THE FIELD FOR ELECTRIC SHOCKS

 

WARMER BIRDS FLY TO THE SUN

SHOT OUT OF THE SKY BY THE HUNTER'S GUN

THE FRIGHTENED CHICKEN, THE GLUTTONOUS SWINE

THIS IS WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO PUT INSIDE YOU?

 

NEVER FORGET

THE ELEPHANT

NEVER FORGETS YOU

 

FIRE TREES ON THE HILLS OF MEGIDDO

KILLER BEE, VAMPIRE MOSQUITO,

THIS IS WHERE THE SNAKE SPEAKS IN TONGUES

TO THE FIRST MAN AND THE MAN-MADE WOMAN

 

LOVE FOR GAME AND WAR FOR OIL

SET THE TABLE WITH THE MORTAL COIL

PUT ON THE SKIN AND YOU GET YOUR FILL

ALL YOU CAN EAT, ALL THAT YOU CAN KILL

 

NEVER FORGET

THE ELEPHANT

NEVER FORGETS YOU

 

FOG ROLLS IN, UNINVITED,

NIGHT MOANS FOR THE NEW DEAD

THE VOICES BEHIND SLAUGHTERHOUSE DOORS

IT'S MAN AND NATURE IN A MESSY DIVORCE

 

ICE MELTS BUT RIVER IS DRY

IT'S WHERE THE POLAR BEARS GO TO DIE

FLASH FLOOD FROM THE FAST FOOD HEAT

YOU GOT FAT ON THE CHEAP MEAT

 

YEAH

 

NEVER FORGET

THE ELEPHANT

NEVER FORGETS YOU
