So the saying says, "An elephant never forgets."
Standing in the concrete cave
Swaying sad and insane
They walked over the ocean
In their dreams they dreamed awake
Until the lights grew dim, until the cop cars came
Everybody tells me this is crazy
Yes, I know, that I'm a man, man, man
Man, man, man eater
And still you're surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya

You know
They call them "killer" whales
But you seem surprised
When it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank
Where you can't turn around
It took half your leg, and both your lungs
And I craved I ate hearts of sharks
I know you know, that I'm a man, man, man
Man, man, man eater
But still you're surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya
Yes, I'm a man, man, man
Man, man, man eater
But still you're surprised-prised-prised when I eat ya

It will end again in bullets, friend
It will end again in bullets, friend.

    General CommentCall me crass, but I wish I'd thought of this song when that animal trainer was killed by the Sea World orca whale the other day.

    We know they call them killer whales
    But you seem surprised when it pinned you down to the bottom of the tank.


    People continually forget what animate objects can do, people included.
