"Rock And A Hard Place" as written by and Jimmie Young Lee Stoller....
The fields of Eden
Are full of trash
And if we beg and we borrow and steal
We'll never get it back
People are hungry
They crowd around
And the city gets bigger as the country comes begging to town

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock and a hard place

This talk of freedom
And human rights
Man's bullying and private wars and chucking all the dust into our eyes
And peasant people
Poorer than dirt
Who are caught in the crossfire with nothing to lose but their shirts, yeah

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock and a hard place
You'd better stop, put on a kind face
Between a rock and a hard place

We're in the same boat
On the same sea
And we're sailing south
On the same breeze
Building dream churches
With silver spires
And our rogue children
Are playing loaded dice

Between a rock and a hard place
You'd better stop, yeah

Give me the truth now
Don't want no shame
I'd be hung drawn and quartered for a sheep just as well as a lamb

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
A rock and a hard place
You'd better stop put on a kind face
Can't you see what you've done to me

    My OpinionGreat song, I love the flashpoint version of it, always get the party started. Jagger is fantastic, just like the band. Flashpoint is very underrated, ool from sweden
