"Rock And A Hard Place" lyrics

Rock And A Hard Place

The fields of Eden
Are full of trash
Well, if we beg and we borrow and steal
We'll never get it back

People are hungry
They crowd around
And the city gets bigger
As the country comes begging to town

We're stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock
And a hard place

This talk of freedom
And human rights
Means bullying and private wars
And chucking all the dust into our eyes

And peasant people
Poorer than dirt
Who are caught in the crossfire
With nothing to lose but their shirts
Yeah

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock
And a hard place

You'd better stop
Put on a kind face
Between a rock, yeah
And a hard place

We're in the same boat
On the same sea
And we're sailing south
On the same breeze

Building dream churches
With the silver spires
And our rogue children
Playing loaded dice

Between a rock
And a hard place
You'd better stop, yeah
Yeah, get a load of that

Give me the truth now
Don't want no shame
I'd be hung drawn and quartered
For a sheep
Just as well as a lamb

Stuck between a rock
And a hard place
A rock
And a hard place
You'd better stop
Put on a kind face
Oh, yeah

Can't you see
What you've done to me?

Between a rock
And a hard place
That's what I said
Between a rock
And a hard place
Yeah

You'd better stop
Stop, baby, stop
Put on a kind face

Yeah
Don't you believe anymore?
Yeah
Come on now
Yeah

Between a rock
And a hard place
Between a rock, yeah
And a hard place
You'd better stop
Put on a kind face
You'd better stop
Put on a kind face

Between a rock
Yeah
And a hard place
Between a rock
And a hard place
