  • Jt Balaam from Santa Maria, CaI had once heard, and it makes sense, is that Southbound Pachyderm refers to the decline of the republican party, being as their symbol is an Elephant.
  • Ryan from East Lyme, CtActually, this song is about Illegal poaching in Africa. In return this creates a dwindling elephant population- Just watch Primus' DVD- Blame It On The Fish.
  • Don from San Antonio, TxCome on, there's more facts than THAT! The video was made by the team that made "James & The Giant Peach" when they weren't working on the film.
