"Badlands [Phoenix, 78]" as written by and 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
But there's one thing I know for sure
Girl, 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
Yeah, are you listening to me baby?

Talk about a dream
Try to make it real
You wake up in the night
With a fear so real
You 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 wheels
'Til you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts
Learned real good right now
You better get it straight girl
Poor man want to be rich
Rich man want to be king
And a king ain't satisfied
'Til he rules everything
I want to go out tonight
I want to find out what I got

But 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, 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

Woah oh woah oh woah oh

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, 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

Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
Woah oh woah oh woah oh
Badlands
