Badlands by Bruce Springsteen

Lights out tonight

Trouble in the heartland

Got a head-on collision

Smashin' in my guts man

I'm caught in a crossfire

That I don't understand

I don't give a damn

For the same old played out scenes

I don't 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 don't come

Well don't waste your time waiting

Badlands you gotta live it every day

Let the broken hearts stand

As the price you've gotta pay

We'll keep pushin' till it's understood

And these badlands start treating us good


Workin' in the fields

Til you get your back burned

Workin' 'neath the wheel

Till you get your facts learned

Baby got my facts

Learned real good right now

Poor man want to be rich

Rich man want to be king

And a king ain't satisfied

Till he rules everything

I want to go out tonight

I want to find out what I got


I believe in the love that you gave me

I believe in the faith that can save me

I believe in the hope

And I pray that some day it may raise me

Above these badlands




For the ones who had a notion

A notion deep inside

That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive

I want to find one face that ain't looking through me

I want to find one place

I want to spit in the face of these badlands
