"Confusion" as written by and Simon Cyril Hussey James Michael Reyne....
These boys are torn and tired
They used to burn so bright
They staggered into love or sin one night
Turn down that light

All of their battles are happy
And all of their songs are sad

Confusion of slow novas
Burning clear and fade away
Confusion of slow novas
Drifting away drifting away

Their life is like no other
Their world is like no one
They wandered out to scream and shout and run
Forever young

Those boys are torn and tired
They used to burn so bright
They staggered into love or sin one night
Turn down that light

    General CommentThis song is about SEX... the narrator has had loads of sexual experiences but has never really connected with anyone emotionally, so now his experiences are all blurring together and confusing him... he's had all sorts of relationships from mundane to daring but they've all been just for the sake of sex.

    I think musically this is one of the best songs from the later era of James... Tim Booth apparently never liked it much, hence why it didn't make the Millionaires album. I personally think it's great, and should not only have gone on the album but should have been a single... it would probably have stood a better chance in the charts that the tracks off Millionaires that they did release.
