lyrics

If we did...
If we did...

I got a call the other day from that zoo
Zookeeper panicked asking what I knew
Not much until yesterday when it arrived on my doorstep
Hiding something like a solicitor
But with a trunk like that, who could be mistaken?
Well, you can’t even fool the most naive of my friends

Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen (Even if we did)
Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen

We took an oath of silence it seems
Too young to run out of energy
A circus can be so damning
Chained up, among children laughing
Zoo wasn’t much better
But at this point none of that matters

Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen (Even if we did)
Got this pink elephant in the room (We don’t even talk about it )
It won't listen, It won't listen

We don't even talk about it
and if we did...
If we did...

Surely you know someone with a gun,
We can shoot it up then drag it through the doorway
Instead we’ll just stand staring
which won’t help things as it enters the kitchen
Put away the pans and lock the doors
'cause things are coming undone
You know you can’t stop a stampede, baby
We'll stand in silence and wait for it to come
Wait for it to come, Wait for it to come
