NUR EIN! - Elevator Men lyrics

Post by Caravan Ray » Fri May 19, 2017 11:05 pm

Elevator Men
-strangelove

Elevator man
Elevator man
Elevator elevator elevator man
I wanna be your elevator man
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
I wanna be your elevator man

We're going up
Elevator man
Elevator man
We're going down
Elevator elevator elevator man
I wanna be your elevator man
We're going up
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
We're going down
I wanna be your elevator man

From the ground floor to the penthouse
i'll shuttle back and forth
maybe stopping at a random floor between
And if I plummet to the basement
I can try to slow things down
with some lithium and carbamezepine

Elevator men
Elevator men
We slide open my doors
You come inside
Elevator men
Elevator men
Baby it will be a bumpy ride

We're going up up up up up up up up
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator man
Elevator elevator elevator man
I wanna be your elevator man
Down down down down down down
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
I wanna be your elevator man

Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator elevator elevator elevator
Elevator man

I wanna be your elevator man

Elevator Men - inflatable vegetables

The elevator men pull up to your building
In shiny white vans with royal blue logos
They stomp into the lobby wearing coveralls and boots
Pulling brown leather bags full of polished chrome tools

Pressing all your buttons with their grubby stubby fingers
Lubing up your doors, they stop at every floor
From the basement to the penthouse, they linger to present
Rusty gears and greasy cables, crusty rears around your table

Elevator men get down, get down
Elevator men rise up, rise up
Elevator men get down, get down
I wish I was your friend like the elevator men

The elevator men play their elevator music
Easy listening saxophone and glistening piano
Nothing spastic, it's glossy and plastic
Bland and sleepy, big band creepy plans to keep you in a trance

CH

I stay in the lobby of the building next door
Push my powered auto-scrubber, polishing the floor
I wish you would come over, visit now and then
But you're too busy laughing with your elevator men

Elevator Men
by Merisan

The sky is clear
The moon is bright
But will they see
It shine tonight?

They never look
More than a peek
a passing glance
at Paris streets

Elevator men
(What do you hear?)
Les Hommes d’ascenseur
(Who do you tell?)
High and low
(All of the secrets)
Haut et bas

How does it feel
To rise and fall
To head up and down and up
And nowhere at all

Elevator men
(What do you hear?)
Les Hommes d’ascenseur
(Who do you tell?)
High and low
(All of the secrets)
Haut et bas

Balance Lost

Sitting silently, waiting for a chance
Hunter/gatherer in a deadly dance
A nomadic tribe, distant traveller
Looking for a home, hunter/gatherer

Pursuing a thought on rational lines
The philosopher opening your mind
In the library question what you learn
Searching for a key, the philosopher

Since the world became industrialised
Civil engineers focus and divide
Engines driving on, grinding of the gears
Power and the speed, civil engineers

Going up and down, concrete, glass and steel
Elevator men cut another deal
Pay in cash and know what to wear and when
International elevator men

73 Keep It Beautiful


elevator men
elevator men
their lonely voices tell me that the doors will close and then
elevator men
elevator men
lift me to the 7th floor and bring me down again
they’re tiny little men
they live in this machine
they never answer when I ask them why there’s no 13
elevator men
elevator men
it’s fun to push your buttons set in shiny rows of ten
elevator men
elevator men
I visit them each morning and once more at night time when
they keep things to themselves
they never let me see
the secret floor you can’t get to unless you have a key
elevator men
elevator men
i push a special button so the door will close and then
elevator men
elevator men
i visit them each morning and at evening time again
they’re tiny little men
they live in this machine
they never answer when I ask them why there’s no 13
they keep things to themselves
they never let me see
the secret floor you can’t get to unless you have a key
elevator men

ELEVATOR MEN
Micah Sommersmith

In the morning see how they ascend,
Rising from the lobby to their offices above
To spend the day affixed to desktop screens
Knowing that tomorrow they will do it all again.
In the morning see how they ascend:
All the boring elevator men.

In the evening see how they descend,
Offices to lobby, and then taxis and then home
To spend the night affixed to TV screens
Knowing that tomorrow night they'll do it all again.
In the evening see how they descend:
All the dreary elevator men.

I'm not one of those;
I've got secrets underneath my corporate clothes.
But in my fight for bread,
To survive I must disguise myself as one of them,
And learn to sing their song,
And stand and sing along:

In the morning see how we ascend, / In the evening see how we descend,
Rising from the lobby to our offices above / Offices, then lobby, and then taxis and then home
To spend the day affixed to desktop screens / To spend the night affixed to TV screens
Knowing that tomorrow we will do it all again. / Knowing that tomorrow night we'll do it all again.
In the morning see how we ascend: / In the evening see how we descend:
All the boring elevator men. / The elevator men.

Elevator Men

I'd say we start at the bottom
but, that's not always true
Some have an advantage from the start
The men explore
different paths and different floors
Except the empty spot which used to house a heart

And 'though there's up and downs
in the cities and the towns
The skyscrapers are eerily the same
A path that's fraught with fraud
at home and abroad
It's a race to have a name within the game

The elevator men
Will act and they'll pretend
to justify the ends,
and no one is your friend

And there's a penthouse suite
reserved for the elite
but, you cannot reach the floor without the code
'though the draw is strong
to go where you don't belong
You might think that you can hide it, but they'll know
And you must commit
when the exit sign is lit
So, step lively, and please do not block doors
Because to fit in
with the elevator men
First, you must believe that everything is yours

The elevator men
Will act and they'll pretend
to justify the ends,
and no one is your friend

Elevator Men
by Skub

I don't think that we see eye to eye
So why don't you pick on somebody your own size
I reach for the top and stretch the truth
I got more sole than you do in my shoes

Life had left me trampled underfoot,
Underwhelmed, perpetually overlooked
Now I walk a hundred stories tall
When I get a lift I'm up above it all

We are elevator men
And it's high time we ascend
Walking tall like we're the greatest

We are elevator men
and there are times we must pretend
that we are larger than life made us

Berkeley Social Scene

When you're jonesing
They'll come running
They lift you up
They’ll get you high

Up Up Up
Down Down Down
There go the Elevator Men

Give them a call
When you’re down low
They deliver you
That pure white snow

Up Up Up
Down Down Down
There go the Elevator Men

Life of crime
On the climb
Hustlers rise
Ghetto demise

Up Up Up
Down Down Down
There go the Elevator Men
Up Up Up
Down Down Down
There go the Elevator Men
