Eels – Mr E's Beautiful Blues lyrics

The smokestack is spitting black soot into the sunny sky
The load on the road brings a tear to the indian's eye
The elephant won't forget what it's like inside his cage
The ringmaster's telecaster sings on an empty stage

God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah
God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah

The girl with the curls and the sweet big ribbon in her hair
She's crawled out the window 'cause her daddy just don't care
(come on!)

God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah
God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah

The clown with the frown driving down to the sidewalk fair
Finger on the trigger I tell you he is quite a scare

God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah
God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah

The kids fit their lids when their heads hear that crazy sound
Their neighbour digs the flavour still he's moving to another town
(and I don't believe he'll come back)

God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah
God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah

And I don't know how you're taking all the shit you see
You don't believe anyone but most of all openly agree

God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah
God damn right it's a beautiful day ahah

    I've always liked finding hidden meanings in songs and books and I'm pretty sure this song is pretty straightforward. I will share a few points that I thought were interesting for example when they speak of the elephant not forgetting what it's like inside his cage. I'm pretty sure he's speaking about being here on the earth awake and feeling bound. Not being able to fly, as well as not being free, as a person, as a being. This also comes out when he's talking about the ringmaster singing on an empty stage. Feeling like he's completely alone singing to thousands and no one really gets what he's trying to express or who he really is. Another meaning for the elephant could be, to me anyway, your personal incarnation as God here in this world sort of the battle between knowing you're God and not having the complete power to express all of your full potential.

    The best songs as well as literature mean different things to many people so humbly I post here my own interpretation this song because I thought it was cool.
