The Ladder

Prince and The Revolution

 

 

Once upon a time in a land of Sinaplenty
There lived a king who didn't deserve 2 (be) (live)
He knew not where he came from
Nor where he was going
He never once said thank U, never please

Now this king he had a subject named Electra
Who loved him with a passion, uncontested
4 him each day she had a smile
But it didn't matter
The king was looking 4 The Ladder

Everybody's looking 4 The Ladder
Everybody wants salvation of the soul
The steps U take are no easy road
But the reward is great
4 those who want 2 go

A feeling of self-worth will caress U
The size of the whole wide world will decrease
The love of God's creation will undress U
And time spent alone my friend, will cease

Everybody's looking 4 (The Ladder) (answers)
How the story started and how it will end
What's the use in half a story, half of a dream
U have 2 climb all of the steps in between

Everybody… everybody's looking 4 a Ladder
Everybody wants salvation of the soul
The steps U take are no easy road
(it's not that easy)
But the reward is great
4 those who want 2 go (I do)

Everybody... everybody's looking for the answers
Everybody wants to know how the story
Started and how it will end
What's the use in half a story, half a dream
U, U gotta climb, I climb all of the steps in between

Everybody… Everybody's looking 4 The Ladder
Everybody wants salvation of the soul (salvation)
The steps U take are no easy road (that's for sure)
The reward is great

4 those who want 2 go, those who want 2 go

Everybody... everybody wants an answer
Anyone who know how the story started, how it will end
Will it be lonely in the world? What's the use?
