"Elephant In the Room" as written by Guy Sigsworth and Richard Walters....
Calling you to wake
Shouting in my car that's stalled outside
And it's pure coincidence I'm sure
Falling from my mouth, secondary doubts I've found myself in
Can't seem to look you in the eye

And I hope you can see
I'm more than this, this heap at your feet
Who are you to judge me?
Who are you to preach?
Control has slipped away from me again

How heavy are these words?
They're heavier than air
That rushes past your face as you drive away from me again
How heavy are these hands?
They're heavier than blood
That rushes to my head as you walk away from me again

Forcing you to speak
Snapping out my voice seems smaller now, it's only whispering my life
Paper cuts in time
I insist you keep these letters here and read them over if you can

And I hope you can see
I'm more than this, this heap at your feet
Who are you to judge me?
Who are you to preach?
Control has slipped away from me again

How heavy are these words?
They're heavier than air
That rushes past your face as you drive away from me again
How heavy are my hands?
They're heavier than blood
That rushes to my head as I will walk away from here again

How heavy are these words?
They're heavier than air
That rushes to my face as you turn away from me again
How heavy are these words, heavier than time
That rushes past your face as you would turn to walk away again

    My InterpretationIt's funny how Love can cut you to your knees and make you 12 feet tall. I hear this song and i hear the surrendering of pride & ego for that gnawing need to connect with the one who holds your heart even though time has torn the joy from your mutual chests, resulting palpable pain from regret. Powerful song, phenomenal illustration of Soured Love.

    My InterpretationTo me this song is about an anxiety disorder.

    Falling from my mouth, secondary doubts I've found myself in
    Can't seem to look you in the eye

    People with anxiety disorders are very self consious.

    Forcing you to speak
    Snapping out my voice seems smaller now, it's only whispering my life

    They feel like their opinions don't matter.

    ANyways, I have an anxiety disorder and that's just what it means to me.
