gates of steel lyrics – devo

twist away the gates of steel
unlock the secret voice
give in to ancient noise
take a chance 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!
