Borderlans

“Ain’t No Rest For The Wicked” by Cage the Elephant

Full song. Borderlans probably has shorter version but words seems the same.

I was walkin’ down the street
When out the corner of my eye
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me
She said, “I never seen a man
Who looked so all alone
Oh could you use a little company?

And if you pay the right price
Your evening will be nice
And you can go and send me on my way.”
I said, “You’re such a sweet young thing
Why you do this to yourself?”
She looked at me and this is what she said

[Chorus]
Oh, there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Money don’t grow on trees
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
And ain’t nothing in this world for free
No I can’t slow down
I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could
No there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

Not even 15 minutes later
I’m still walkin’ down the street
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight
And then he swept up from behind
He put a gun up to my head
He made it clear he wasn’t lookin’ for a fight

He said give me all you got
I want your money not your life
But if you try to make a move I won’t think twice
I told him you can have my cash
But first you know I gotta ask
What made you wanna live this kind of life?
He said

[Chorus]

Well now a couple hours passed
And I was sitting in my house
The day was winding down and coming to an end
So I turned to the TV
And flipped it over to the news
And what I saw I almost couldn’t comprehend

I saw a preacher man in cuffs
He’d taken money from the church
He’d stuff his bank account with righteous dollar bills
But even still I can’t say much
Because I know we’re all the same
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills

[Chorus]
You know there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Money don’t grow on trees
We got bills to pay
We got mouths to feed
And ain’t nothing in this world for free
No we can’t slow down
We can’t hold back
Though you know we wish we could
No there ain’t no rest for the wicked
Until we close our eyes for good

“Short Change Hero” by Heavy

I can’t see where you comin’ from
But I know just what you runnin’ from:
And what matters ain’t the “who’s baddest” but
The ones who stop you fallin’ from your ladder, baby

And you feel like you feelin’ now
And doin’ things just to please your crowd,
When I love you like the way I love you,
And I suffer, but I ain’t gonna cut you ’cause

This ain’t no place for no hero.
This ain’t no place for no better man.
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call “home.”

This ain’t no place for no hero.
This ain’t no place for no better man.
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call “home.”

Every time I close my eyes, I think,
I think about you inside,
And your mother, givin’ up on askin’ why –
Why you lie, and you cheat, and you try to make
A fool outta she…

I can’t see where you comin’ from,
But I know just what you’re runnin’ from.
And what matters ain’t the “who’s baddest,” but the
Ones who stop you fallin’ from your ladder, ’cause

This ain’t no place for no hero.
This ain’t no place for no better man.
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call “home.”
