A lossless version is also available for download at the Summer 1980 Demo Tape page.

The track was mentioned by Daryl Bamonte in Bong Magazine, Issue 24, Page 18 to have never been recorded, but that is clearly not the case. See below:

Lyrics

I heard it on
The radio news
The mass decision
The mass view

Concealing
Concentration
We spoke then
Of a nation

They seem to be
In my doorway
In my stairway
And in my hallway
In my head
And in my action
The self-inflicted
Contraction

And I can speak
And I can walk
And I can move
And I can talk
And I can speak
And I can walk
And I can move
And I can talk
Yes I can talk
I can talk
I can talk
I can talk
Talk
Talk
Talk
Talk
