The Elephant's Repose
Lyrics
The Elephant's Repose
© 2014 Johnny Starburst

Tears upon a blue stained face
The clown's victory parade
Passengers with no escape
Sins too often made
Mothers blessed with joy of life
Children cheering wild
Its seems the sudden avalanche
Made calls we've never dialed?

(chorus)
A party's not a party till the elephant is tamed
True ignorance is slaughtered and prejudice is slain
The last thing I remember as the gates of hell were closed
Was the sound of hatred dying at the Elephant's Repose

No doubt we saw a sudden change
The movement had begun
And yet we saw no blood at all
The war not fought was won

(chorus)
A party's not a party till the elephant is tamed
True ignorance is slaughtered and prejudice is slain
The last thing I remember as the gates of hell were closed
Was the sound of hatred dying at the Elephant's Repose

(bridge)
The word itself was spoken though it never reached an ear
The dance of true enlightenment by the blue stained balladeer

(chorus)
A party's not a party till the elephant is tamed
True ignorance is slaughtered and prejudice is slain
The last thing I remember as the gates of hell were closed
Was the sound of hatred dying at the Elephant's Repose
