The Failed Exorcism of the Demonic Elephant

from The Lost Grimoire by Headless Relatives

lyrics

We lit the candles
We said the words
We lit a fire
In the dark
We drew the curtains
We held our breath
Hoping we'd be safe
From the sparks

We performed all of the rituals
But it refused to disappear
And I can feel the hour
Of reckoning drawing near

We never asked to have this monster
Make it's way into our lives
So we just try to ignore it
With our fake smiles and our lies
But it's growing ever bigger
It's getting harder to ignore
And I have never felt
So terrified before

I see tears
Gather in your eyes
But I try to keep
My face composed
This is the part
That I've had to play
Ever since this monstrosity
Arose

We performed all of the rituals
But it refused to disappear
And I can feel the hour
Of reckoning drawing near

We never asked to have this monster
Make it's way into our lives
So we just try to ignore it
With our fake smiles and our lies
But it's growing ever bigger
It's getting harder to ignore
And I have never felt
So terrified before

And as the clock strikes midnight
I can feel my muscles tense
As I struggle to keep up
My last lonely defense
But I know the time is on us
And now the only question left
Is will we leave this room together
Or will the monster be our death
Will the monster be our death
