LYRICS:
…Back when people could form complete sentences…

…The batwalk up the side of the building,
even the batwalk was intelligent repartee.

It’s really devolved today, I don’t know what’s going on.
It can’t be technology, because we’re using it.
And we’re not devolving, are we?

You know, Devo, the band Devo, the phrase “Devo”
meant De-evolution.
Absolutely.
So the band Devo were named after the term De-evolution.
Which, I think, is a biological term.
I think that mark Mothersbaugh heard it in college
when he was at Kent State.
You know, he was at Kent State, watching,
when that (government firing on students) happened.

I had to stop the tape, because that definitely…
…boy, that story (that I just told about my past),
you can’t say that on radio.

We’re making an album in this
whole process, right now.
I know.
So, to all the listeners, you’re part of this.
I know.

I’ve actually heard live records
where they say,
“GOOD EVENING CLEVELAND!
I WANT YOU TO KNOW,
THAT RIGHT NOW, YOU,
ARE GONNA BE ON,
A LIVE ALBUM!”

…and everyone cheers,
so I’m saying that right now
to the audience,
in the non-live, cut-up
technology, everyone has
powerful computers on their desktop
and I actually know how to use them.

I think music is how you live forever,
…art.
Yeah, I would agree.

We’re peace-lovin’ men here,
on this show.

I think music is how you live forever,
…art.
Yeah, I would agree.

I think music is how you live forever,
…art.
Yeah, I would agree.
