The Badlands

This song is by Gatsbys American Dream and appears on the album Volcano (2005).

They call this the badlands, baby,
But it used to be bayou
The shore of an inland sea
But I can (hear you coming x8)

What foul beast stalks this way
The night is dim, but I catch the scent of your arrogance
As you rear you head I can see your eyes gleaming
(As the light from the moon) like a pair of knives
That cut me down

A hole in the world
And the light is leaking out
Spilling like water
And I can (hear you coming x8)

What new devilry is this?
I saw you rise
And creep across the sky.
And all night as I fled,
You came behind,
Eating all the stars.
Dig to find.
Why the light left
Rocks and stones,
Skulls and bones,
Whispered stories,
Tales of glory, (and a tragic fall from grace x3)

And we're still falling just like the dinosaurs
And a tragic fall from grace.
