All across the continents
Everywhere a soul is sent
A new mix of the races is takln
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
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 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' the colors

Now a language that sounds new
Comes a-driftin' next to you
And the music that you hear ls changin' too
'cause they 're mixin' the colors
Baby the colors
