Walk Us Uptown - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)/The Roots

Will you walk us uptown

 

And wherever you go

You know we will follow

Will you walk us uptown

And we'll stand in the light

Of your new killing ground

And we won't make a sound

 

Except to sing our sorrow

Will you walk us uptown

While our tears run in torrents

To suffer in silence or pray for some solace

Will you wash away our sins

In the cross-fire and cross-currents

As you uncross your fingers

And take out some insurance

 

No matter what the price

 

It's your own paradise

Will you walk us uptown

 

Will you walk us uptown

 

Some hearts are sinking

And some hearts are a-flutter

 

Some scoop gold from the dirt in the gutter

 

Or swallow the earth

Pouring into your mouth

 

As they bury us upright saying

'Everything's alright'

Will you walk us uptown

Like some said that you could

We will feast on your flesh

And drink down your blood

Will you haul down that flag

And dishonour that vow

Cause we must not change

 

It's color now

Will you walk us uptown

No matter what the price

 

Each crushed in the corner of their own paradise

 

Will you walk us uptown

 

Will you walk us uptown

That's always assuming

 

That you're partly divine and partly human

You're the king of our hearts

You're the clown with the drum

Will you walk us uptown

If we promise not to run

Will you walk us uptown

Will you gather us near

As cowards flee and traitors sneer

Keep a red flag flying

Keep a blue flag as well

And a white flag in case it all goes to hell
