    The lyrics were inspired by US president Ronald Reagan's belief that Christ would return after a nuclear war. The "two tribes" are America and the Soviet Union, who were engaged in the Cold War, putting the entire world under threat of annihilation.

    On the back of an enormous publicity campaign, Frankie Goes to Hollywood dominated British music in 1984. With a series of slogans, T-shirts, and homoerotic videos, the band caused enormous controversy in England and managed to create some sensations in the United States. However, the Frankie sensation was finished as soon as it was started; by the release of their second album, Liverpool, in 1986, the group's audience had virtually disappeared.: https://www.allmusic.com/artist/frankie-goes-to-hollywood-mn0000139741/biography

    The "two tribes" in this 1980's song are America and the Soviet Union, who were engaged in the Cold War, putting the entire world under threat of annihilation. The song features British actor Patrick Allen reading extracts from a government civil defense leaflet.
