Uphill

This song is by Can and appears on the Compilation album Delay 1968 (1981).

As he's rushing round the Greyhound
As he changed his velvet gown
Turning over in his graveyard
He could have it, another sound
He kept rushing 'cross the wayside
As his ever-ringing eye
But his mellow market bringing
As he changed into a spy

Kept on moving up the hill now
Moving, up, up, up, up slow
As he changed his years to blow, yeah
He could give the velvet show
Changing uphill as he rose now
Changing uphill as he rose
Changing uphill as he rose now
Changing uphill as he rose

Keep on moving sideways changer
As he felt the velvet touch
Crying for his grandmother
As he came upon this crush
Calling, changing, going uphill
Calling, changing, going uphill
Calling, changing, going uphill
Calling, changing, going uphill

As he flashed across the screaming
And his big wheel kept to a start
He tried putting his card in reverse
As he changed his heart pick card
He just kept on changing, going uphill
He never stopped, he never stopped

As his flash lights changed to beacons
And his heart name chained to gold
He came running 'cross the highway
As he tried to back off slow
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly

As his fever hot came inside
As his night changed into day
He could take the melted bisson
As he turned his heart away
He was changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly

As his night changed into sun
As the crystal pace could see
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly
Changing uphill, going slowly

As he came across the top bay
Find for his dynamite
He kept pushing it through the sweet dream
As he moved across outside
Just kept on moving, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly

As he crossed across the sun
Dynamite just brought him down
But his heart fingered the books under
As his feet could not touch the ground
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill

And the night turned silver pale
And the green men to sell the profit
Change his gears into reverse
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly

Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, going uphill
Changing slowly, go

As the pounds refused to see
