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. 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. And everybody's restless Everybody's scared Everybody's looking for something that just ain't there Everybody's restless Everybody's restless.

It was the opening track off his album, Breaking Hearts. The song is basically a rock and roll song. The studio version features a heavy load of synthesizers, giving the song a more 'updated' feel than the original demo, which was more piano-driven. The song is more than five minutes long, which got panned by critics as it is very similar throughout the whole song. The song is almost political. At the time of its release, it was the height of the Cold War , and the lyrics describe that the people are " Searching for something that just ain't there ". There are also mentions of that the "Walls have ears" and "Big Brother's watching". This links to the novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four , in which both lines actually exist, curiously in the same year as the song was released. It could also be a pun on the German Democratic Republic , which at the time had surveillance similar to that of the novel. Taupin also writes that they're " Breaking down doors in foreign countries ", which was the fall of communism.
