Lyrics
:

In the heart of darkness
I've waited for you
Since the world's creation
In the depths of Hades
In the Garden of Eden
Jerusalem
I stumbled I fell.

Since the dawn of man
Time honoured I ran
Saints in the light
Angels in hell
Unholy city
Jericho
I wait for you.

Come away, come away
Away with me
I'll show you treasure
You've never seen
Away, oh come away with me
And I will show you
Elders and folklore.

Ever since the first bom
The first blood ran
The eighth day started
I ran as fast as I can
Temples in desert
Jerusalem
I wait for you.

Come away, come away
Away with me
I'll show you treasure
You've never seen
Away, oh come away with me
And I will show you
Of elders and folklore.
Oh I will show you
Of elders and folklore.
And I will show you
Elders and folklore.

Come away, come away
Away with me
I'll show you treasure
You've never seen
Away, oh come away with me
And I will show you
Of elders and folklore.

Elders & folklore

Mike Peters Notes
:In late 1987, The Alarm had to record a ‘B’ side for the “Rescue Me” single. For the first time in our lives we had no new songs and no new recordings in the can. Before we could rectify the situation the deadline for the artwork was upon us and so we gave out this fictitious song title for inclusion on the single’s artwork and then set out to write the song. Little did we know that we would be throwing away one of The Alarm’s finest songs.. In the recording studio we soon realised what we had and desperately tried to have the single withdrawn, as knew it was too good to br a ‘B’ side. I think this song could have been an Alarm single in it’s own right.
