Two Tribes Lyrics


Yeah
Ha
When Two Tribes go to war
One is all that you can score
(Score no more, score no more)
When two tribes go to war
One is all that you can score
(Workin' for the black mask)

Comrad number one
A born again poor man's son
(Poor man's son)
On the air America
I modeled shirts for Van Heusen
(Workin' for the black mask), yeah

When two tribes go to war
One is all that you can score
(Score no more, score no more)
When two tribes go to war
One is all that you can score
(Workin' for the black mask)

Switch up your shield
Switch up and feel
I'm walkin' out, lover hey
I'm givin' you back a good time
I'm shippin' out, out
I'm workin' for the black mask

One is all that you can score
When two tribes go to war
When two tribes go to war
One is all that you can score

We got two tribes
(We got to part, we got to part), yeah
Somethin' this good died

Are we living in a land
Where sex and horror are the new gods, yeah

When two tribes go to war
One point is all that you can score

Two Tribes
  • The lyrics were inspired by US president Ronald Reagan's belief that Christ would return after a nuclear war.
  • The song features British actor Patrick Allen reading extracts from a government civil defense leaflet. Allen is well known in Britain for his distinguished voice, which has narrated many television adverts and films for over 30 years.
  • This was written by the band 2 years previous to release and was featured on a BBC Radio 1 John Peel session in October 1982.
  • In the extended version, the announcer states, "You may pronounce us guilty a thousand times over, but the goddess of the eternal court of history will smile and tear to tatters the verdict of this court - for she acquits us." When Adolf Hitler was tried for his failed putsch in 1924, he said these words (rather a very close paraphrase of it) in his concluding speech: "Pronounce us guilty a thousand times over: the goddess of the eternal court of history will smile and tear to pieces the State Prosecutor's submission and the court's verdict for she acquits us."
  • Former 10cc band members Lol Creme and Kevin Godley produced a memorable video featuring a no-holds-barred, hand-to-hand fight between Reagan and then Soviet leader Konstantin Chernenko. Godley recalled to Q magazine: "It was a very intense shoot. We were trying to get the audience to behave in a manner that we wanted to by chanting, 'Kill! Kill! Kill!' A few of them seriously got into the spirit of it by jumping in the ring and beating each other up!"
  • Trevor Horn produced this track. He spent weeks juggling with the sound and remixing it to perfection.
  • In the UK for 2 weeks, this was #1 while Frankie Goes To Hollywood's song "Relax" was #2. They became only the third act to achieve this feat, after The Beatles and John Lennon, who like Frankie Goes To Hollywood, came from Liverpool. Madonna broke the Liverpool streak the next year.
  • In the UK, this sold close to 2 million copies, making it one of the biggest-selling singles of the '80s. This was partly due to Horn's tendency to put out as many as 7 different mixes of the singles.
