"[I]t's absurd that a singer in a rock band puts on a pinstripe suit and goes for a walk down Wall Street banging on doors. But you know what? They opened."

"The Cry/The Electric Co." (live from Chicago 1)

This is for anyone at the Aragon twenty years ago, twenty-five, twenty-three

I used to cry, I used to cry, I used to cry
When I was a boy, I was a boy, I was a boy
Can't shut me up, can't shut me up, can't shut me up
Now I know why, now I know why, now I know why
'Cause I can't stop trying to get back there

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

If you don't know
Electric Co.
I said you don't know
Electric Co.

Red, running red
Tell me what's real so I can feel
A hole in your head
A shockblast goes through what's inside

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

Show me, show
Coming up

Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
A cage, it's a cage
I'm in a cage
I'm in a cage, no
A cage, no

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

Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Despite all my rage
I'm still like a rat in a cage
Yeah
