Mixin' The Colors Lyrics

by Iggy Pop

All across the continents, everywhere a soul is sent
A new mix of the races is taking place
It's what Hitler didn't like and it makes a pretty sight
Just look at what you see on your MTV

Out on the edges they're mixin' the colors
Some they don't like it but me I don't mind
In every city they're mixing the colors
Different shades for the whole countryside

If you leave the hate alone tonight
Music's gonna get you home tonight
If you leave the hate alone tonight
Music's gonna get you home tonight
They're mixin', they're mixin'

On the edges of the line
There's a different kind of kind
No one seems to claim for
The race war games

'Cause you don t have to choose sides
It just crucifies your mind
There's a hundred million ways
To live your life for yourself

Out on the edges they're mixin' the colors
Some they don't like it but me I don't mind
In every city they're mixin' the colors
Different shades for the whole countryside

I like the kids with the open up faces
I like the kids with the ways of their own

If you leave the hate alone tonight
Music's gonna get you home tonight
If you leave the hate alone tonight
Music's gonna get you home tonight
Mixin', mixin', mixin', mixin' the colors

Now a language that sounds new
Comes a driftin' next to you
And the music that you hear is changin' too
'Cuz they're mixin' the colors, 'cuz they're mixin' the colors
Baby, the colors, oh, the colors
