"Elephants" as written by and Winston Godfrey Rodney....
They will lock you up and throw away the key
Where no one will ever find you
You were sent to destroy the world
You were meant to be the end
Of hope for all mankind
I'd been wasting away

I let you get away so cleanly
Without a trace, without a sound
By now my hope for you has fleeted me

They will dig a hole and bury you
I wasted away so many days in hell
I wasted away so many days in hell with you
You were sent to destroy the world
You were meant to be the end
Of hope for all mankind
I've wasted away so many days in knowing you

I let you get away so cleanly
Without a trace, without a sound
By now my hope for you has fleeted me
(Fleeted me)

I was a walking dead man living the truth
With a liar by my side
I was a walking dead man living the truth
With a liar by my side

I let you get away so cleanly
Without a trace, without a sound
By now my hope for you has fleeted me

I let you get away so cleanly
Without a trace, without a sound
By now my hope for you has fleeted me

I let you get away without a sound
You were sent to destroy the world

    General CommentThis song to me is like, elephants are big animals, and the person that this song's about has had a big impact on Matt's life, like an elephant in his world. ...or something? Probably miles off.

    My InterpretationWell it reminds me of my ex. Of how he lied, cheated and how I wasted all my time and energy on him for him to just leave me so very quicky, now hes a heartless bloodsucker and hes going around dating and breaking more hearts. Damn, I let him get away so cleanly.
