"[O]ne of the reasons I'm interested in the principle of surrender, one of the reasons I'm interested in a man of peace like Martin Luther King, is that I'm the opposite."

"The Cry/The Electric Co." (live from Boston '81)

Somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry
Somebody’s eyes, somebody’s eyes
Somebody’s eye
Don't you look back, don't you look back
Don't you look back
Somebody cry, somebody cry
Somebody cry

But I can’t say why I’m waiting

Boy, stupid boy
Don't sit at the table until you're able to
Toy, broken toy
You shout and shout, you're inside out

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
Alright

Red, running red
Play for real, toy could feel
Hold your head
You don't shout, you're spoon fed

Till you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
Alright

Open
2-3-4, 2-3-4
Guiding inside of myself
You’re in the crowd
Bring on the crowd
I need a crowd
Open, open
You open, you open

If you don't know
Electric Co.
If you don't know
Electric Co.
But if you don't know
Electric Co.
But if you don't know
Electric Co.

We need a singer
We had our own
Our singer, oh no
Oh no
And you know
And you know
I know
