Year: 1984


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.

Oh, 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.

Oh, and everybody's restless.                 
Everybody's scared.
Everybody's looking for something that just ain't there.   
Everybody's restless.

(instrumental)

Oh, and everybody's restless.                 
Everybody's scared.
Everybody's looking for something that just ain't there.   
Everybody's restless.

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

Restless. Everybody's restless.
