Depeche Mode – Get the Balance Right! – 1983


    There’s more besides joyrides
    Little house in the countryside
    Understand, learn to demand,
    Compromise, sometimes lie

    Get the Balance right, get the balance right
    Be responsible, respectable,
    Stable but gullible
    Concerned and caring, help the helpless
    But always remain ultimately selfish

    Get the balance right, get the balance right
    You think you’ve got a hold of it all
    You haven’t got a hold at all
    When you reach the top, get ready to drop
    Prepare yourself for the fall, you’re gonna fall
    It’s almost predictable

    Don’t take this way, don’t take that way
    Straight down the middle until next Thursday
    Push to the left, back to the right
    Twist and turn ’til you’ve got it right

    Get the balance right
