Borderlands: Intro and Game Trailer Song

While the art direction in Borderlands is fairly interesting, so is the music.

Borderlands

Here are two tracks from Borderlands that should be on the OST (Official Sound Track) at any rate.

“Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked” by Cage The Elephant

was walking down the street
When out the corner of my eye,
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me.
She said I never seen a man,
Who looks so all alone,
Could you use a little company?
If you could pay the right price,
Your evening will be nice,
Or you can go and send me on my way,
I said you’re such a sweet young thing,
Why’d you do this to yourself?
She looked at me and this is what she said.

Oh, there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees,
I got bills to pay,
I got mouths to feed,
There ain’t nothing in this world for free.
I know I can’t slow down,
I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could,
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Not even 15 minutes later,
I’m still walking down the street,
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight,
And then he swept up from behind,
Put a gun up to my head,
He made it clear he wasn’t looking for a fight,
He said give me all you’ve got,
I want your money not your life,
If you try to make a move I wont think twice,
I told him you can have my cash,
But first you know I’ve got to ask,
What made you want to live this kind of life?

He said there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees,
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
Ain’t nothing in this world for free.
I know I can’t slow down,
I can’t hold back
Though you know I wish I could
Oh no there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Now a couple hours past,
And I was sitting in my house,
The day was winding down and coming to an end,
So I turned on the TV,
And flipped it over to the news,
And what I saw I almost couldn’t comprehend,
I saw a preacher man in cuffs
Taking money from the church,
He stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills
But even still I can’t say much
Because I know were all the same,
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills.

You know there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Money don’t grow on trees,
We got bills to pay
We got mouths to feed
Ain’t nothing in this world for free.

Oh no
We can’t slow down,
We can’t hold back
Though you know we wish we could.
You know there ain’t no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

“No Heaven” by DJ Champion

Oh Lord (oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord)…
Oh Lord
Oh boy, oh well I told you
Well I told you, but I thought you’d know
There ain’t no heaven
Oh Lord, there ain’t no heaven
There ain’t no heaven
On the county road
Don’t talk about it
Oh boy, don’t talk about it
Don’t talk about it
If you do, I’ll cry
Don’t come around me
Oh Lord, don’t come around me
Don’t come around me
If you do, I’ll die
Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven
Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven

Down at the station stood my dear ol’ mother
Oh well she keep on, keep on screamin’ and a-cryin’
“Oh Lord, I wonder what my son has done”

Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven
Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven

Oh Lord (oh Lord)…

Ah Did you bring me, bring me any silver? (silver, silver…)
Oh did you bring me, bring me any gold? (any gold, gold…)
Oh did you see me, workin’ on South Carolina
Oh just to see me work on the county road?

Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven
Oh Lord (oh Lord), there ain’t no heaven

(Oh Lord, oh Lord)
Oh Lord (oh Lord)
There ain’t no heaven (there ain’t no heaven)
(Oh lord, there ain’t no heaven)
Oh lord (oh lord), there ain’t no heaven
