It's all in the eyes
The reckless way we dream to die
Our past is our future

The present lies
Somewhere between our hearts and minds
For those with no future

We'll touch hands on the street
Smile and keep moving on towards the heat
So keep this a secret our lot in life
They are elephants, we are mice

We'll walk this earth somnambulant kin
With broken hearts that cannot mend
Losers first and second men
We'll do our best to blend in

You could reach out for my hand and I yours
Deliver water to soothe the burn
We'll drink our tears and thirst for more
It's our lot in life

They are elephants we are mice
So keep this a secret
Keep this a secret
We are mice

    General Commenti may be wrong but could this song be discribing children of sexual abuse? "the present lies", "secrets", elephants stump on mice, "we will drink our tears", "this is our lot in life"? or maybe they are talking about orphans. i may be completely off but this song is moving. the melody is enchanting. and the visual effects used (black and white with light casting) in the video is artistic.
