Texte chanson

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 But there's one thing I know for sure 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 (chorus) 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 field till you get your back burned Workin' `neath the wheels till you get your facts learned Baby I got my facts learned real good right now You better get it straight darling Poor man wanna be rich, rich man wanna be king And a king ain't satisfied till he rules everything I wanna go out tonight, I wanna find out what I got Now I believe in the love that you gave me I believe in the faith that could save me I believe in the hope and I pray that some day It will raise me above these Badlands... (chorus) For the ones who had a notion, a notion deep inside That it ain't no sin to be glad you're alive I wanna find one face that ain't looking through me I wanna find one place, I wanna spit in the face of these Badlands... (chorus)
