Dan Bull - Look At The Elephant lyrics

[Intro] I'd like to tell you Some uncomfortable truths This will now happen [Verse 1] Within a few years The elephants are gonna die But they're less important to our ecosystem than a fly (Why?) All of our actions Are ultimately selfish Even when we help the helpless We're thinking what we can get out of this No need for an apology It's just biology But could be stronger in a colony And honestly I can't debate the fact my claims will be debated I can't overstate the fact I'm underrated I can't stand or understand the fact I'm hated I tried being understated 'till I realized it was overrated Your tablet phone was made by modern-day slave labour The world today is a race to make us chase paper to the grave Spend, spend, spend! but make sure you save for later Haters are gonna hate But maybe what they're sayin' will save ya' Insane or saviour Am I a liar Pariah Messiah Or a normal guy with a desire to inquire? I'm adding fuel to fire I draw the ire I decided the dividing line Like a binary multiplier We're all bullied in school But never did it ourselves That doesn't add up You are a bully without knowing as well You're guilty of stuff you'd have others thrown in a cell for So look close to home Before telling him what we're going to hell for [Chorus] Look at the elephant! Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant [Verse 2] Now Human rights are universal 'cause they mean nothing unless given to the worst of us Regardless of what people do Murderers are people too Who legally you're equal to There's no line between good and evil, dude There's only actions and intentions A result of chemical reactions and events And any ethical infractions That you care to add to that are an invention But don't pretend that that's an invitation To act a twat 'cause you're ingrained with empathy Advanced behavior Saviour But you have more empathy for people of your own race For those whose skin tone fits that of your own face (Don't blame me, I'm just saying) The capacity's in all of us for genocide It's best to face the demon inside than try to run and hide Nazis were people, too (What?) If you'd have been in their circumstances The certain chance is you would be one, too Pedophiles are people, too That's their s**uality It's not a choice, they're not criminals Unless they breach legality And when the age of consent changes internationally Ranging from 8 to 18 Then it's a ma**ive leap You may feel uncomfortable But that's the truth, actually Like the fact that you're a walking, talking poo factory [Chorus] Look at the elephant! Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant [Verse 3] Within a few years The elephants are gonna die But they're less important to our ecosystem than a fly (Oh my!) And transs**ual is genetically their birth gender It's burnt into the embers of their cells like the Earth's center We can pretend But in the end eventually Identities in consequential conscious beings are non-essential Disagree? Each piece of meat you eat was born of suffering Most reasons for eating it recede to nothing when you look at it And similarly with abortion A significant portion of the arguments Can apply to infants that are already born If you say you refuse to go back to coat hangers Then the NRA could claim to say 'We won't go back to daggers!' You may say 'It's none of our business as a cis-head prick' But I'm not one for indifference I'm at odds with it is what it is Regardless of whose gob's admitting it So if you've got a problem we're listing it It's probably the cognitive dissonance kickin' it Some of your most deep and strong beliefs are wrong Mine too Read along to the lyrics of this song You'll probably see the ones To err is human To forgive divine To redefine what we believe is right Is the [?] behind [?] to really feel alive To be reminded of the blood The guts The bones And the meat inside I really tried But this feeling can't even be described It's too revealing I can't be surprised We try to keep it hiding at times Fear takes over So like Peter we deny But the beauty within reason Seems it cannot be defined Everyone will compromise their morals for enough money And farts will always, always be funny [Chorus] Look at the elephant! Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the f**ing elephant, the elephant Look at the motherf**ing elephant [Bridge] You are going to die No, really. Listen to me You Are Going To die Now I don't care about advances in cryogenics Or the infinite universe theory You Are Going To die
