Badlands


Lights out tonight
Trouble in the heartland
Got a head-on collision
Smashiní in my guts man
Iím caught in a crossfire
That I donít understand
I donít give a damn
For the same old played out scenes
I donít give a damn
For just the in-betweens
Honey I want the heart, I want the soul
I want control right now
Talk about a dream
Try to make it real
You wake up in the night
With a fear so real
Spend your life waiting
For a moment that just donít come
Well donít waste your time waiting

Badlands, you gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price youíve gotta pay
Weíll keep pushiní till itís understood
And these badlands start treating us good

Workiní in the fields
Till you get your back burned
Workiní íneath the wheel
Till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts
Learned real good right now
Poor man wanna be rich
Rich man wanna be king
And a king ainít satisfied
Till he rules everything
I wanna go out tonight
I wanna find out what I got

I believe in the love that you gave me
I believe in the hope that can save me
I believe in the faith
And I pray that some day it may raise me
Above these badlands

Badlands, you gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price youíve gotta pay
Weíll keep pushiní till itís understood
And these badlands start treating us good

For the ones who had a notion
A notion deep inside
That it ainít no sin to be glad youíre alive
I wanna find one face that ainít looking through me
I wanna find one place
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

Badlands, you gotta live it every day
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price youíve gotta pay
Weíll keep pushiní till itís understood
And these badlands start treating us good
