about

Topsy is waiting for Edison to die, he finally does and Topsy is free....or so she thinks.

lyrics

Tell me Thomas can you hear for almost 30 somethin years
I tried to blanket you in fear each night and day
and yet you stubbornly insist I somehow simply don’t exist
but in due time you won resist your final fate
you won't resist your finale fate your final doom
both of which are coming soon

elephant in the room elephant in the room elephant in the room
elephant in the room elephant in the room elephant in the room
you can't ignore the elephant in the room

do you believe the things you see
or do you tend to disagree
when I say purgatorily I can’t escape
the only way that I foree
that I can finally be set free
is to drag you kicking, screaming, drag you kicking screaming to the grave
drag you kickin screaming to the tomb
drag you there tomorrow afternoon

elephant in the room elephant in the room elephant in the room
elephant in the room elephant in the room elephant in the room
You can’t ignore the elephant...

in the room you now lay dying, an entire lifetime trying
oh is now a lifetime ending
years and years I’ve waited for it
now I can’t believe it, I’ll finally receive it
I can finally live an afterlife, after I watch you die

elephant in the room (repeat)

all the time that I wasted
all the years obliterated
all the songs I could be singing
all the joy I could bringing
oh and now that its over I can finally recover
I can finally retire from the gloom
say goodbye to the elephant in the room
adios dear elephant in the room
goodbye to the elephant in the room
