"Badman" as written by Newton Faulkner and Toby William Battenberg Faulkner....
Cities built on balle fields and shopping malls from meadows,
Rivers redirected there's no red green, blues or yellows,
Take a little time to find a better place away from all the noise and the drinking
We could run away, we'll find a better day not watching while the ship is sinking

Do you wanna hide inside your house?
Do you wanna hide inside your house?
Do you have a TV in your house?
Do you wanna hide inside oh

Please just runaway with me.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.
Oh please we can find all we need.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.

The animals have gone away have disappeared forever
While humans beuild machines and start to think they're so clever
Take a little time to find a better place away from all the noise and the drinking
We could run away, we'll find a better day not watching while the ship is sinking

Do you wanna hide inside your house?
Do you wanna hide inside your house?
Do you have a TV in your house?
Do you wanna hide inside oh

Please just runaway with me.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.
Oh please we can find all we need.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.
Please just runaway with me.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.
Oh please we can find all we need.
Oh please just give me fields and trees.

    General CommentLove the intro to this. The instrumentation is brilliant. Don't really like the singing/vocal melody.

    I think the meaning is quite clear. It's about escaping the busy, suffocating cities and towns and the way of life for something more simple. The vast majority of us after a day at work or even on our days off just spend most of the day in our house (watching TV etc).
