Devo - Gates of steel

Gates of Steel
(Gerald V. Casale, Mark Mothersbaugh, Sue Schmidt, Debbie Smith)
Album: Freedom of Choice

Twist away the gates of steel.
Unlock the secret voice.
Give in to ancient noise.
Take a chance on a brand new dance.
Twist away the gates of steel.

Twist away. Now twist and shout.
The Earth, it moves too slow.
But the Earth is all we know.
We pay to play the human way.
Twist away the gates of steel.

(A man is real, not made of steel!)


But the Earth is all we know.
We pay to play the human way.
Twist away the gates of steel.

The beginning was the end - of everything now.
The ape regards his tail - he's stuck on it.
Repeats until he fails.
Half a goon and half a god.
A man's not made of steel.

Twist away. Now twist and shout.
The Earth, it moves too slow.
But the Earth is all we know.
We pay to play the human way.
Twist away the gates of steel.

(A man is real, that's how he feels!)
