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


Radio News

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
