Azure Ray - We Are Mice Lyrics

It's all in the eyes
The reckless way we dream to die
Our past is our future
The present lies
Somewhere between our hearts and minds
For those with no future
We'll touch hands on the street
Smile and keep moving on towards the heat
So keep this a secret our lot in life
They are elephants we are mice
We'll walk this earth somnambulant kin
With broken hearts that cannot mend
Losers first and second men
We'll do our best to blend in
You could reach out for my hand and i yours
Deliver water to soothe the burn
We'll drink our tears and thirst for more
It's our lot in life
They are elephants we are mice
So keep this a secret
Keep this a secret
We are mice

  1. Nora M

    I love this band and I hate that they dont play anymore....

  2. diornotwar123

    what do they mean when they say "they are elephants, we are mice"?

    Pete Jones

    diornotwar123 Elephants are much larger than mice, but they are terrified of them. I dont know if this is meant in a political or poetic sense but I make up a combination of the 2 ahaha


    They feel small, shunned. Not able to fight against society or whatever it is making them feel like this. They are scared and feel powerless.


    It means there are two kinds of people in the world: The rich and powerful who trample over the poor and weak (Elephants), and the poor and weak who get trampled, used and abused (Mice). Shhhh...Keep this a secret.

    The have done solo albums (Orenda has done 2 under her own name and then did a project called Art in Manila and a project called O+S. Maria has 3 solo albums). All of their solo and project work is fantastic. but, they did reunite to do a new album this year.
