Genesis - Land Of Confusion mp3 flac
Land of Confusion Lyrics. I must've dreamed a thousand dreams Been haunted by a million screams But I can hear the marching feet They're moving into the street Now did you read the news today ? They say the danger's gone away But I can see the fires still alight They're burning into the night. There's too many men, too many people Making too many problems And not much love to go round Can't you see this is a land of confusion? This is the world we live in And these are the hands we're given Use them and let's start trying.

A rare political song for Genesis, "Land of Confusion" questions the wisdom of world leaders at a time when the US and Russia were enemies and there was a threat of nuclear war. Phil Collins called it, "A political song about the mess we have landed i. Mike Rutherford, who wrote the lyric, added: "I've always shied away from doing what I call a preachy song, a protest song, but it seemed to work. This song is mentioned in the movie American Psycho. The lead character, Patrick Bateman, played by Christian Bale, calls this album their "Undisputed masterpiece," and praises this for "Questioning authoritative control. He then kills his coworker.
Land of confusion" did at least have some character to it, with a melodic chorus and a punchy rhythm. It managed to avoid most of the soul and funk influences which plagued the band around this time too, with only some unnecessary "woah-ohs" to remind you that this was written with chart success in mind. The B side was another non-album track called "Feeding the fire". Land of Confusion was better than the other singles Genesis released from the Invisible Touch album, but like most of their material from this period, it lacks anything closely resembling progressive rock. It's basically a fast-paced pop rock song. The B side contains an interesting song called Feeding the Fire, which seems slightly similar to The Last Domino in its lyrical and instrumental darkness.
