Soul For Hire (Album Version) - Elvis Costello (埃爾維斯 科斯特洛)

Written By:Elvis Coste

Hang my head and shut my eyes

 

What kind of justice is this

 

Fool I was I thought that you fought fire with fire

Got to me more than just a soul for hire

 

Speaking for myself

I wouldn't take the fame the fees the glory

 

For whoring in the practice of the law

 

I make my case stop and stutter

Soul comes unglued from the uppers

Blood is seeping in the hole

A mother's eye is weeping

 

I see every human kind

 

And still the truth is distant

 

I see every evil men do and desire

Got to be more then just a soul for hire

 

When it's time to give protection

To the ones who need it most who are desperate

 

I get distracted from my job

Streams of ink and piles of paper

What are the breaks

Jump out the window Parole Escape

Blood is seeping in the hole

A mother's eye is weeping

 

Hang my head and shut my eyes

 

I can't see justice twisted

 

I see every evil men do and desire

 

Got to be more than just a soul for hire

 

When it's time to give protection

To the ones who need it most who are desperate

 

I get distracted from my job

 

Streams of ink and piles of paper

To hand them over to dopers and kiddie-rapers

 

Corrupt in every twisted grudge

And that is just the judge

 

Hang my head and shut my eyes

 

What kind of justice it this

 

Hang my head and shut my eyes

 

What kind of justice is this

 

Hang my head and shut my eyes

 

What kind of justice is this
