Andrew Bird – Sic Of Elephants lyrics

You were right
There was never reason to worry
Money made your eyesight all blurry
Making lists of pacifists

Recalcitrant poses
Can't you see how dangerous
The one you chose is?
Which brings us back to

Might makes right
So we learn from Wars of the Roses
Pain was only fear
Kneading your toes

Making haste to spite your face
To cut off your noses
Convince yourself and others that these
Fish smell like roses

Can't you see how dangerous?
When you're too content to make a fuss
Can't you see how dangerous?

Squint your eyes and see
Elephants, sycophants, elephants

Squint your ears and hear red-faced rants
Pleated pants
That's what you are

Can't you see how dangerous?
When you're too content to make a fuss
