來到這裡輕輕的翻閱生活,享受日常的一切,在扉頁留下你的足跡

這首歌寫的是關於社會高層及社會底層的現象

寫著一群人整天花天酒地,到處玩樂

卻對現實生活中的問題

世界的問題不聞不問

談論著一些種族歧視的言論

一些他們想像的世界未來

但最後,社會底層及中堅份子終究會反撲,推翻一切

建立新的樓房,新的一切

[John Legend:]
All this trouble in this here town

在這座城市裡有許多問題

All this shit going down

When will they focus, on this

Streets ride up with the TV crews

But they didn't notice

They float above the city lights

They see us reaching for the sky

Just ignore them to survive

Oh man look at the times

Didn't they notice, notice

Only future I can see, ain't what it used to be

只有我能看到的未來,一個與過去不同的未來

And I didn't know this, I didn't know this

而且我不熟悉,我不熟悉

Once you're above the city lights

一旦你沉醉於五光十色的城市中,

Won't want to spend another night, down there on your own

你不會想在花一個晚上,實際的做點什麼

The holding on is made for us

I heard this old joke once, it was like uh knock knock, who's there, it's us, who's us?

He said what happened to the boy that climbed in the trunk
