Battle Born
The Killers Lyrics


You lost faith in the human spirit
You walk around like a ghost
Your star-spangled heart
Took a train for the coast

When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
So how'd you lose the light?
Was it blown by the wind
In the still of the night?
You're up against the wall

Up against the wall
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You're gonna get back on your feet
('Cause you can't stop now)

I always saw you as a kind of keeper
A mother to a child
But your boys have grown soft
And your girls have gone wild

From the Blue Ridge to the Black Hills
To the Redwood sky
The season may pass
But the dream doesn't die

Now don't you drop the ball

Up against the wall
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You're gonna get back on your feet
('Cause you can't stop now)

And when they break your heart
And when they cause your soul to mourn
Remember what I said
Boy, you was battle born
('Cause you can't stop now)

You was battle born

When the night falls on the land
Are you haunted by the sound?
It's gonna take more than a hand
To turn this thing around
Won't you lean it on me?
Rescue, set me free

Up against the wall (up against the wall)
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down (up against the wall)
You're gonna get back on your feet
'Cause you can't stop now ('cause you can't stop now)

And did they break your heart? (Did they break your heart?)
And did they cause your soul to mourn?
Remember what I said (remember what I said)
Boy, you was battle born (you were battle born)
'Cause you can't stop now ('cause you can't stop now)

Come on, show your face (come on, show your face)
Come on, give us one more spark (give us one more spark)
We'll sing your song of fire (sing your song of fire)
Unless we fall into the dark (fall into the dark)
'Cause you can't stop now ('cause you can't stop now)

You never live, you never learn
You never shine if you never burn
A rising tide, the undertow
The famine and the overflow
Well, turn away, welcome home

You lost faith in the human spirit
You walk around like a ghost
Your star-spangled heart
Took a train for the coast

When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
So how'd you lose the light?
Was it blown by the wind,
In the still of the night?

We're up against the wall

Up against the wall
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You're gonna get back on your feet
(No you can't stop now)

I always saw you as a kind of keeper
A mother to a child
But your boys have grown soft
And your girls have gone wild

From the Blue Ridge to the Black Hills
To the redwood sky
The season may pass
But the dream doesn't die

Now don't you drop the ball

Up against the wall
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You're gonna get back on your feet
(No you can't stop now)

When they break your heart
When they cause your soul to mourn
Remember what I said
Boy you was battle born

(No, you can't stop now)
You was battle born

When the night falls on the land
Are you haunted by the sound?
It's gonna take more than a hand
To turn this thing around

Won't you lean it on me?
Rescue, set me free

Up against the wall (Up against the wall)
There's something dying on the street
When they knock you down (Up against the wall)
You're gonna get back on your feet
Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)

Did they break your heart? (Did they break your heart?)
And did they cause your soul to mourn
Remember what I said
Boy you was battle born
Cause you can't stop now (Cause you can't stop now)

Come on show your face
Come on give us one more spark
Sing a song of fire
Lest we fall into the dark
And you can't stop now (No, you can't stop now)

You never live,
You never learn
You never shine
If you never burn
The rising tide
The undertow
The famine and
The overflow
You turn away
Welcome home

Boy you was battle born
Cause you can't stop now"

Y el propio Brandon Flowers dijo que Battle Born fue un disco sin éxito.
Cuando es realmente el mejor disco que han sacado en su carrera (no comercial) tiene unas letras y sonidos impresionantes.
Be Still tiene millones de visitas, es una canción impresionante, el disco tiene letras que han cambiado vidas.... Y aquí estoy de prueba que este disco es lo mejor que me ha pasado en mi vida.

Keila Sánchez

El mejor disco de la vida <3.

Naux94

fue el único álbum que compré nada más salir. Es precioso, para mi de los mejores sin duda. Y ese estilo que llevo la banda durante esta época era esquisito

Mejor no lo pudiste haber dicho.

Juan Oh9000

En general siento que The killers no han tenido la fama que han de haber merecido. Prácticamente todas sus canciones son grandiosas.

@rocketfish234 What 80s movie soundtracks would you recommend to someone who really liked this album? Thank you for your time.

Baz Kannon

@thatidiotSeba yoooooo this guy gets it

SaltyCheddar'72

I have been shocked at how this album is discounted.
I did hear that Rolling Stone Magazine ranked it very high.
