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?
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 ranch to the black hills
To the redwood sky
The season may pass
But the dream doesn't die

Why did 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
So we'll start a fire
Unless we fall into the dark
And you can't stop now (No, you can't stop now)

You never know
If you never learn
You never shine
If you never burn
The rising tide
The undertow
The venom and
The overflow
You 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

You lost faith in the human spirit

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

Fun Fact:
It has been proven by science that this song actually cannot be played loud enough.

Wojciech Skalski

Proved!!!

kay jr

nvriese shit, science is failed here

Finest Custard

I must be in the other one. I think I just broke my speakers, it was too loud... :I

Michael Justice

Colin, well i guess that this song proves the many worlds quantum theory wrong then!

Aaron Powell

I agree this song is better as it gets louder. Listen to the song Rent I Pay by Spoon. It's another one that was meant to crank up.
