Rome

Rome is actually the name of the album but a title such as Danger Mouse & Daniel Luppi Feat. Norah Jones was too much of a headache. So Rome it is! This song slightly rips off the Eagles’ Hotel California but since it’s so damn good- let’s call it a tribute. There’s an interactive version of the vid that can’t be embedded here. Check out the link at the bottom of the page to try the interactive version (a collaboration with Google. Sort of fun but parts of the graphics are kinda shaky). G’weekend!

Lyrics

We touched the walls of the city streets and
Dead ends plain, sadly showed us our ways
Of never asking why

Cast down it was heaven sent and
To the church, no intent to repent on my knees
Just to cry

Until you travel to that place you can’t come back
Where the last pain is gone and all that’s left is black

Grey nights he’s coming to me and
Some day they’ll punish my deeds and they’ll find
All the crimes

But then they ask when they gonna see them
Then they gonna ask to feel the ghosts, the walls, the dreams
Well I’ve got mine

At last those coming came and they never looked back
With blinding stars in their eyes but all they saw was black

Fooled them hoping to seem
Like a slave of evil but the product of greed and
It’s not a mass so be honest with me
We can’t afford to ignore that I’m the disease

Practical since we had to be and
When they were old they came back to me and they tried
Oh they tried

And when you follow through and wind up on your back
Looking up at those stars in the sky, those white clouds have turned it black
