Can pain lands tap for the Eldrazi colorless <> mana?

A pain land is like this: Battlefield Forge

Tap: add (1) to your mana pool

Tap, pay a life: Add R or W to your mana pool

Those came out before the <> symbol was a thing. If you do its first option and tap for a colorless, can you use those to cast spells with the <> in them, like Kozilek, the Great Distortion?

Thanks

    <> mana and colourless mana are equivalent terms. Mana that comes from Battlefield Forge can be used to pay for the <><> in Kozilek, the Great Distortion's mana cost as it just means those two must be paid with colourless mana from any source.
