Land of Confusion by Genesis & Disturbed (YouTube + Lyrics)

Land of Confusion has to be one of the best songs of all time. Genesis killed it with this one back in 1986 and then Disturbed made and awesome cover for it.

That is why I am going to provide both YouTube video’s and the lyrics for land of confusion because I enjoy both of them in their own way.

Genesis is my favorite version of the song because it is original and because Phil Collins is a beast. He not only can play the hell out of the drums, but he has such a unique voice. Phil Collins definitely is the reasons for Genesis success in my opinion. Now the Disturbed version also rocks. It’s the great song written by Genesis, but with the Disturbed heavy metal delicacies. Depending on my mood, I could go either way, ok that sounded bad, but the Disturbed cover is just as good as the original in it’s own separate genre.

Land of Confusion Lyrics

I must have 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 has gone away
But I can see the fire’s still alight
They’re burning into the night

There’s too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go around
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
To make it a place worth living in

Oh, superman, where are you now?
When everything’s gone wrong somehow?
The men of steel, these men of power
Are losing control by the hour

This is the time, this is the place
So we look for the future
But there’s not much love to go around
Tell me why 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
To make it a place worth living in

I remember long ago
When the sun was shining
And all the stars were bright all through the night
In the wake of this madness, as I held you tight
So long ago

I won’t be coming home tonight
My generation will put it right
We’re not just making promises
That we know we’ll never keep

There’s too many men, too many people
Making too many problems
And there’s not much love to go round
Can’t you see this is a land of confusion?

Now, this is the world we live in
And these are the hands we’re given
Use them and let’s start trying
To make it a place worth fighting for

This is the world we live in
And these are the names we’re given
Stand up and let’s start showing
Just where our lives are going to
