"Elephant" as written by and Mark/persson Linkous....
I caught you smiling
With pointed teeth
What once was beautiful
Has turned bitter and cheap
So now there´s nothing I can do for you
But leave your roses out to die

I misbehaved
I´m in your way
In your way like an elephant

Gentle smiling
With pointed teeth
Now there´s a war between
My high hopes and me
So this is how you put an end to things
By cutting throats with a smile

I misbehaved
I´m in your way
In you're way like an elephant

But in the corner of my mind
A little angel saying
"Don´t waste you're love,
You love too much"

    Lyric CorrectionI caught you smiling
    With pointed teeth
    What once was beautiful
    Has turned bitter and cheap

    So now there's nothing I can do for you
    But leave your roses out to die

    I misbehaved
    I'm in your way
    I'm in your way
    Like an elephant

    Gentle smiling
    With pointed teeth
    Now there's a war between
    My high hopes and me

    So this is how you put an end to things
    By cutting throats with a smile

    I misbehaved
    I'm in your way
    In your way
    Like an elephant

    But in the corner of my mind
    A little angel's saying
    Don't waste your love
    You love too much
