patterns lyrics – devo

patterns all around you, patterns everywhere
patterns of behavior, sometimes seem unfair
can you recognize the patterns that you find?

patterns unfamiliar, patterns lead you through
to patterns of discovery tracing out the clues
can you recognize the patterns that you find?
stuck in your mind

in this land where stability is hard to find
you can rearrange the patterns so unkind
don’t bother asking why a pattern never cries
old patterns never die, they just go on and on

patterns multiplying, re-direct our view
endless variations make it all seem new
can you recognize the patterns that you find?
stuck in your mind

in this land where stability is hard to find
you can rearrange the patterns so unkind
don’t bother asking why a pattern never cries
old patterns never die, they just go on and on
