Elton John - "Restless Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

It's a hot summer night in the blackboard jungle

Can't get no work, I can't get a job
Crime sits heavy on the city shoulder
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 looking for something that just ain't there
Everybody's scared
Everybody's restless

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

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