lyrics

appear the elephant
she lumbers in the room
with the eyes crossed cocktails
no, it’s not good
some things they linger
leave a residue
and I’m not innocent or ignorant
of all that we do here
instead I cry, don’t throw me out
don’t put me out
conflict, pressure
family blown to pieces
“you’re freaking out”
and now the elephant
demanding a refute
the speech is slurred and seething
no, it’s not cool
ashamed and silent
as I leave the laundry room
and I’m not innocent or ignorant
of all that we do here—PORN!
“you’re freaking everyone out”
I go you stay won’t you?
I low, you Hey! won’t you?
piles on the carpet
mothers pack them in
piles on the carpet
I don’t have a car
piles on the carpet
