Oh, bad lands Far as the eye can see and Nothing out here but hope There's nothing Here left for me and I'm gonna pick up and leave For the Badlands Badlands Great sky boats Fill up the dock that day and I'm gonna make one my home Spending my days Down on the factory floor and There's no place I'd rather be Than the Badlands Badlands Badlands Badlands I left my home In the clouds today and There's just one thing on my mind A mystery In a young girl's eyes She follows me to the end To the Badlands Badlands There's ain't no heaven Where I plan to go and It's far too hot for hell Iron wings Beat the burning air and War machines walk the soil In the Badlands Badlands Badlands Badlands Sun blocked out by a bloody sky, Red dust fills the air, I shield my eyes and I wonder why, There ain't no peace anywhere, 'Cause all I see is the dust storm, And it burns my eyes, All I see is my own lies, I'm sweating fire in the hot box, Crawling across the sand, She's had my back since the sky docks, And there ain't no turning back, 'Cause all I see is the dust storm, And it burns my eyes, All I see is my own lies, There's something on the horizon, No where to go, no where to go, no where to... Run right through the dust storm, Just the two of us, Found and lost in the Badlands, The scorching day has passed, But all I see is the dust storm, And it burns my eyes, All I see is my own lies, All I see...

Miserable 03:21
I got nowhere to go No place to call my home I send my hope into the sky It's hot as hell as I slowly fry I'm miserable She's got nowhere to go No, she ain't got a home And she's too damn strong to cry She's stuck with me and her eyes don't lie She's miserable No hope, we're getting low We're a long, long way from home No way back even if we try We sit and watch the day pass us by We're miserable She's the only one I know Makes me feel I'm coming home And I wish I could tell her why For the first time I can't deny I'm not miserable

Desert Queen 04:13
Blue sky Red land No lie First-hand I came to her undone True love First sight I wept All night The pain that brought me here Cold steel Red hands High above The Badlands No one is innocent Big Gun Big stride Undone As we slowly glide Through the desert air She's the Desert Queen A war machine This war I'm in Half truth All lie No youth Big sky It's not what we were told No plan In sight No, man Alright Our best days are here She's the Desert Queen A war machine This war I'm in She's the open sky Where's freedom lies Where freedom dies She's the Desert Queen A war machine This war I'm in We're on the road Nowhere to go Nowhere to... She's the open sky Where's freedom lies Where freedom dies Oh, she's a war machine A sight to be seen A sight to see

Sunnyville 03:10
If you ever find yourself in Sunnyville Better watch your back or better still Just stay away, just stay away I once knew a man who went that way Vanished without a trace, turned up some other day Bound in chains, bound in chains Slave caravans cross the land Searching under every stone, buried underneath the sand Searching for you, searching for you No one can say what they'll do with you But it's foul and it's cruel and there's nothing you can do It's a slaves life for you Well, Sunnyville came this way Nothing that I could do would keep the fiends away They ripped through sky and took her away

about

High above the scorched, dry earth the remnants of humanity float safely on iron salvation. But peace is never meant to last. It's time to descend into the Badlands.

Badlands is an episodic concept album from the twisted creative mind of Riccardo Estate. Set in a distant world, a world that has ended, Badlands will take you on a journey through physical conflict to better understand the nature of self, purpose and companionship.

Begin your journey into the Badlands on December 12 2014.
