Default Re: MIND CONTROL AND THE MUSIC INDUSTRY

Badlands
Bruce Springsteen

Lights out tonight
trouble in the heartland
Got a head-on collision
smashin' in my guts, man
I'm caught in a cross fire
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
[b]Honey, I want the heart, I want the soul
I want control right now
talk about a dream
Try to make it real
you wake up in the night
With a fear so real
spend your life waiting
for a moment that just don't come
Well, don't waste your time waiting


CHORUS
Badlands, you gotta live it everyday
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
till you get your back burned
Workin' 'neath the wheels
till you get your facts learned
Baby I got my facts
learned real good right now
You better get it straight darling
Poor man wanna be rich,
rich man wanna be king
And a king ain't satisfied
till 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 could save me
I believe in the hope
and I pray that some day
It may raise me above these

CHORUS

mmmmmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmm

For the ones who had a notion,
a notion deep inside
That it ain't no sin
to be glad you're alive

I wanna find one face
that ain't looking through me
I wanna find one place,
I wanna spit in the face of these badlands

For those of you on his UNOFFICIAL site, you are quoting the line wrong.

It is:

For those who had a notion, a notion deep inside, THAT IT AIN'T NO SIN TO BE GLAD YOU'RE ALIVE

It is not, as you are quoting it:

IT AIN'T NO SIN TO BE GLAD YOU'RE ALIVE

The following lines are noteworthy:

HONEY, I WANT THE HEART, I WANT THE SOUL, I WANT CONTROL, RIGHT NOW

Let the broken hearts stand as the price you've got to pay

Badlands, you've got to live them everyday
