"Heartland" as written by Andrew Eldritch and Gary Marx....
Lay me down the long white line
Leave the sirens far behind me
Paint my name in black and gold
My heart my flame my heart my road
My heartland fade across the line
Heartland sing the faces shining
In the failing failing failing
Heartland make the places mine

Clearly now the past mistakes
The giant steps we had to take
The path that ever promise made to
Die in dream dissolve and fade

My heartland heartland heartland
My heartland heartland heartland
My heartland heartland heartland
My heartland heartland heartland

Behind the lines a face that glimmers
Still looking for a face that shines
In the promise in the places
I'm going to make them mine

My heartland heartland heartland

    General Comment"Heartland" is probably a reference to the heartland theory by Halford Mackinder (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…). In short:
    "Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland;
    who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island;
    who rules the World-Island controls the world."

    The phrase "Heartland make the places mine" especially.

    General Comment"white line" is undoubtably a drug reference.

    "fade across the line" suggests a car slowly crossing to the wrong side of the road due to steering (or driver) malfunction.

    "black and gold" could refer to black gold, oil.
