An eclectic blend of rock, jazz, soundscapes and electronics. Mad Elephant is capable of soothing soft gentle melodies as well as hard driving rock. Many comparisons to such acts as Travis, Coldplay, and Radiohead.

Biography

Mad Elephant is a 5 piece rock group based out of Trenton, NJ. Core members, Ritchie, Rob and Chris have been together for over two years. John and Tommy joined up not long after. Playing such venues as The Acme Underground (NYC) Conduit (NJ) Sputnik (NYC) The Grape Street Pub (PHILLY) John & Peters (PA) and many others, Mad Elephant has come to a point in time where they are looking to expand their sound and fanbase to larger markets. After listening to the "Angel Wars" CD or seeing a live performance, it is quickly apparent that this is not your run of the mill rock band.

Lyrics

So Now We Sleep

Written By: Ritchie

Here we are in a bind I'll give you everything that you'll need
we'll be pinned down with no choice
but with lesser voice but something greater than the two
a feeling of closure with empathy
so you must know how I feel
And it's here that I made my own choice to love you in the middle of public outrage with a distrust in something so old
you are here with everything that I wanted
just work with me and I think that we'll be fine
So now, I must tell you how you've always made me feel like the luckiest man in the world
well theres no end, no end to this love so now we sleep so now we sleep

Maybe We'll Find You Someone Else

Written By: Ritchie

The sun goes down on the pale white statues
so take your passport and leave here
but where is there left to go

Well maybe we can find you someone else

The fighters are fighting
the lovers are hanging themselves
and their heads are rolling down the dirt roads
so wear your buttons with pride cause there's no way out of this
except for the holes in the ground

Well maybe we can find you someone else

You vs. You

Written By: Ritchie

A shot came through a distant light
I have no opinions I bare only fear
I'll be the first to admit when I die slowly
I'll be the first to call you when you live alone

I'll care for you like my only son
I'll feed you to the sharks
I'll deal you all my loving sons
I'm sorry these fights were'nt as cunning

Falling through the entrance doors
I'm tired from all the interuptions
there's no time left
your speeches are too abstact and dull

I'll care for you like my only son
I'll feed you to the sharks
I'll deal you all my loving sons
I'm sorry these fights were'nt as clever
