Lyrics

AS THE SAYING SAYS "AN ELEPHANT NEVER FORGETS"
STANDING IN THE CONCRETE CAVE
SWAYING SAD AND INSANE
THEY WALKED OVER THE OCEAN IN THEIR DREAMS THEY DREAM AWAKE
UNTIL THE LIGHT GREW DIM
UNTIL THE COP CARS CAME
EVERYBODY TELLS ME THIS IS CRAZY YES, I KNOW IT

I'M A MAN-MAN-MAN, MAN-MAN-MAN-EATER
AND STILL YOU'RE SURPRISED WHEN I EAT YOU

YOU KNOW THEY CALL THEM "KILLER" WHALES?!
BUT YOU SEEM SURPRISED WHEN IT PINNED YOU DOWN
TO THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK
WHERE YOU CAN'T TURN AROUND
IT TOOK HALF YOUR LEG AND BOTH YOUR LUNGS
"WHEN I CRAVED I ATE HEARTS OF SHARKS, I KNOW YOU KNOW IT"

I'M A MAN-MAN-MAN, MAN-MAN-MAN-EATER
AND STILL YOU'RE SURPRISED WHEN I EAT YOU

IT WILL END AGAIN IN BULLETS, FRIEND
