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, darlin’
Poor man wanna be rich,
Rich man wanna be king,
And a king ain’t satisfied,
’til he rules everything.
I wanna go out tonight,
I wanna find out what I got.
Well, 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 someday it may raise me
Above these badlands.
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday,
Let the broken hearts stand
As the price you’ve gotta pay,
We’ll keep pushin’ ’til it’s understood,
And these badlands start treating us good.
