Elton John - "Restless" lyrics

It's a hot summer night in the blackboard jungle Crime sits heavy on the city shoulder Can't get no work, I can't get a job I just sit and play my radio in the parking lot

Well they're breaking down doors in foreign countries Everybody thinks somebody's hiding something There's talk on the street and the nation is worried But you can't talk back when you're dead, when you're dead and buried
And Everybody's restless Everybody's scared Everybody's looking for something that just ain't there Everybody's restless

Everybody's scared, they think we're all in danger Everyone's taking cover from someone else's anger The walls have ears, Big Brother's watching They tell us that we're poisoned from everything that we're touching

Well we could be children from the way we're acting We feed ourselves lies and then we scream for action We just breed and we lose our nerve And there's bombs going off in every corner of the world
