about

And the Elephants is a five piece rock band from Santiago, Chile. Started on 2010, with two self-released EP, their first LP "The Procession" is the result of almost three years in search of a more unique and personal sound by the band.
Moving further into the emotional, riff packed, dynamic proposal from some of their first songs, this album demands your attention from start to finish in order to capture the full range of its sound and the full extent of the story behind it.

Track Name: Icarus
MY SOUL WOULD SING of metamorphoses,
but since, oh gods, you were the cause of these
bodies becoming other bodies,
breathe your breath out through my voice
so may the songs I sing be seamless as its ways
will weave the time out though the world’s
BEGIN!

And I’m falling down on this backlit shadow
I’ll enunciate so the light will follow my lead
my tongue reaches out
laying down logic, time is shallow
I’ll emancipate from the sky and follow my will
high is now the end!

Hide this signs for another!
as I’m diving in
reaching out behind me is a word I stutter
far beyond the fall being smothered

Wake up
torn again, hotter
fall back down into despair
all the tedious shouting on my
all the visions of high handed selfish shut eye brothers
yeah wake up
run again on air
fall back down in one another!

And hide this signs for another!
as I’m diving in
reaching out behind me is a word I stutter
far beyond the fall being smothered
hide this signs from my other…Brother!
Far beyond the fall begins another end
Track Name: Cain
Every time I lie
every time you try
unconfined I’m wandering through the earth, hole.

Envision my uncontrolled proliferation
time can fake it all
now, we must pray for nobody so
our minds fall into numbed elation
I will take you home
we’ll all soon be one

It’s coming in,
I’m changing
the turn of the weather and centuries

Such a false end
this has been on… Me

Here we are down with our sins and our souls!
No I can’t go back again,
for I’m all about bringing a little bit of our end

Every time I die
every time you try
unconfined I’m wandering through the earth, hole.

It’s coming in,
I’m changing
the turn of the weather and centuries

Here we are down with our sins and our souls!
No I can’t go back again,
for I’m all about bringing a little bit of our end
Track Name: St. Christopher
Break the silence
keep telling me your latest vice
please tell it in a way that I can understand

Break the silence and call it off
as you haven’t been awaken
as you haven’t been away for long

Break your tyrant inhibitions
as you haven’t seen my ways and
as you haven’t seen the latest lies I understand
and this vice is my way of life,
my resurrection and my doom
my feast and I leave this up to you so

Wake up, wake up
wake up to my taunting lie and then bring it around to something you understand

Break the silence and call it off
as you haven’t been awaken
as you haven’t been away for long keep telling you to
break the silence
keep telling me your latest vice
please tell it in a way that I can for once get it, I get it, I understand so

Wake up, wake up
wake to my taunting lie and then bring it around to something you understand.

I wanna see it all for myself again
give on to my arms
give it up, give it up and shout it out!
I wanna see it all for myself again
give on to my arms
give it up, give it up and shout it out!
Track Name: Sansara
I can see back
we have fallen into
blindness and violence
endless die and kill
dithering the way of
silence, but violence ends now
hiding in thy hallow name the key to end our wallowing
the time is perfect
so violence ends now
hiding in thy hallow name the key to end our wallowing
the time is perfect
so violence ends now
far away!

Send to me this satellite
got me high and lost, wild animal
I’m in this brightness and blinded
like cloudless sun, uncovered eyes
now do you recall my loving lie?
say this loudly so violence ends now
but impatiently we let a lie
overcome the sun and force this never ending violence
but silence ends now
far away!

And far away!
I can see you far away!
Send to me this satellite…
Far away
Track Name: Gibreel
Coming outside of this plane, humble,
coming inside of this plane, perfect at last

Deep inside, deep inside

Closing inside, I said, “This is something I don’t quite recognize”
then you threw me and tempt me away
begged, “Please hold me, patiently, hold your flight”

Tell me you haven’t seen
anything quite like this
in your past creations,
of everything, the never seen and all the wonderful visions of me and you as me

Let me inside, let me inside, let me inside, let me inside
look at me now, there must be something you haven’t seen,
let me inside, let me inside, let me inside, let me inside
I’m your whole and wings

That’s what they told us
oh yes they told me you were gone, forever
killed your way out of here
“Mahound, fake this murders for me”

Coming outside of this plane, humble,
coming inside of this plane perfect at least,
patiently, hold your flight

Let me inside, let me inside, let me inside, let me inside
look at me now, there must be something you haven’t seen so
let me inside, let me inside, let me inside, let me inside
I’m your whole and
tell me you haven’t seen,
anything quite like this
in your past lives
oh you gotta fight me, gotta fight me, gotta fight me, gotta fight me,
or I’ll stay,
or I’ll kill,
or I’ll…
Track Name: The Book of Lies
Commence in three…
I can see your maker, your maker breaks
Commence in three…
I can see your maker, your maker breaks
Commence in three…
I can see your maker as we’re coming home

This time keep reeling faster!
Its the deceit of the century and
I am a part of it, I’m a part of part of it you know!
Its the deceit of the century now
and I’m a part of, yes I’m a part of

Listen, look ahead
I’m on a mission to deceive
well, somebody got me now
listen, look ahead
I’m on a mission to test all you lovers
to test all your love and faith
listen, look ahead
I have a vision, to be sent upon us
now there’s light
listen, look ahead
I’m on a mission to test all you lovers
to test all your love and faith and…

Testify and send the fire to descend upon you sick non-believers!

Six where before me master,
becoming one we might suffice
in all this growing faster
endlessly

Commence in three…
I can see your maker, your maker breaks
Commence in three…
I can see your maker, your maker breaks
Commence in three…
I can see your maker, your maker breaks
Commencing now
I can say is safer to lay…
Track Name: Galileo
It’s setting fast inside of me,
foresee, beware, stop, rise or we’ll never ever be apart
empty silently apart you see,
I am the one you thought could be
killed, lied, deceived, to get you high as this colliding light
reaching up no matter what but the truth…

Is, this place, holds the false,
rise you always dream about
but if you, face the truth, friend you should
yield and let me be the one

It’s late to see
what happens every time we get to collide!
It’s late but not impossible
wait to see
what happens every time we get to collide!
Wake up now you gotta go

I am the one,
I am the one you thought you could never ever be apart
empty silently apart you see,
I am the one,
the only one who’ll get you as high as this colliding light
reaching up no matter what but the truth…

It’s late to see
what happens every time we get to collide!
It’s late but not impossible
wait to see
what happens every time we get to collide!
Wake up now you gotta go

now you know, now you know, let go!
Track Name: Ganesh
Take, them away!
Come take them out of my arms and out of my head
and break, them away!
Come take them out on my arms and out of my head

Ways of devotion take me away
we are the last ones you thought will be drifting away
in the name of, in the name of faith
in my arms, in my arms,
In my arms!

Just break, them away!
Come take them out of my arms and out of my head
and take, them away!
Come take them out of my arms and out of my head

I’ll be gone,
I’ll be going somewhere you haven’t even though of
I’ll be gone,
I’ll be going somewhere you won’t bleed
I’ll be gone,
In some ways you haven’t even though of
and I’ll be gone in some ways you haven’t even thought of!
Track Name: The Myth of Sisyphus
In this practical suicide
we have set our faith
and ascended where the light ends
where the life…
In this practical suicide
we have placed our faith
to resent this fate in silence,
when the life…
In practical suicide
we have bet our destiny
only to get back to that place we started on

I recognize
this was my little leap of faith, inconsequent, desperate will to emancipate
from this hole.
I recognize
I’m not brave enough, wise enough, child enough, alive enough,
am I enough for you now my friend?
Now we go back
can you recognize?
All the times we have made it
tell me: I’m I still your friend?
Am I myself?

This is terrible, inconceivable,
hiding here on my own mythical lies,
and this is terrible, inconceivable,
hiding here on my own mythical lies,
but all is well,
all is well,
everything, everything’s well.

Henceforth,
I decide to try it all again!
And all is well now.
