Now look at me baby struggling to do everything right
And then it all falls apart when out go the lights
I’m just a lonely pilgrim I walk this world in wealth
I want to know if it’s you I don’t trust cause I damn sure don’t trust Myself
(Brilliant Disguise)

From “Racing In The Street”:

Some guys they just give up living
And start dying little by little, piece by piece
Some guys come home from work and wash up
And go racin’ in the street

From “The Wish”:

If pa’s eyes were windows into a world so deadly and true
You couldn’t stop me from looking but you kept me from crawlin’ through

Badlands:

Poor man wanna be rich,
rich man wanna be king
And a king ain’t satisfied
till he rules everything
