The fields of Eden Are full of trash And 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, and got nothing to lose but their shirts, yeah
We're 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 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 a silver spires And our rogue children Playing loaded dice
Between a rock And a hard place You'd better stop 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 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 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 And a hard place Between a rock And a hard place

"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
Meghan Trainor and her producer Kevin Kadish originally wrote "All About That Bass" for another artist to record. However, after Epic Records boss LA Reid heard Meghan play a demo of the song on a ukulele, he signed the young songwriter to his label and told her she should sing it.
