Elephant's Memory - Martin Sexton

Calling, calling

 

Father wanted to run away

 

With the circus as a kid

 

Or a teen escape to the priestly way

 

And in a way he almost did

 

Twelve children 'round the supper table

 

Every blessed one is his

 

Chanting ten turns 'round the rosary

The holy circus that it is.

 

And me, I'm looking on

with elephant's memory

At that old elephant in the living room

 

You know the one we try not to see

The one who aint gonna be leaving too soon

soon soon soon

 

He's calling, he's calling.

 

Mother asked me what I'm grateful for

 

We make up something one by one

 

Father says forgive us sinners lord

 

Staring right at me when he's done

 

Baby sees the elephant

like she sees the steam rising off her plate

 

But soon enough she'll fall in line

 

And finally learn to look away

away away away away away away

As the secrecy's

calling calling

As the secrecy's

 

keeping the lock on the gate

Guarding us in our safe place

Watching and waiting for

someone to step out of line

Enforcing with anti-grace

 

All of you keepers

and wanna be sleepers

Wake up there's a message so clear

I saw the elephant

and I looked him in the eye

And he begged me

not to tell you he's here he's here

he's here. He's here

he's here. here He's here

And he's calling, calling. calling calling
