Devo / Planet Earth & SIB  (live 1980 at Raincross Square in Riverside, California)

Planet Earth

I heard a girl in a dress
Say her face was a mess
I heard there’s no reason why
I heard that now’s the time to buy

On planet earth
I’ll probably stay
On planet earth
It’s a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane
Fly around in planes
Pray that it won’t rain
Drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars
Dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a girl lose all control
When she lost her new mink stole
I saw her try to catch a man
Things I couldn’t understand

On planet earth
I’ll probably stay
On planet earth
It’s a place to live your life

Where pleasure follows pain
People go insane
Fly around in planes
Pray that it won’t rain
Drive around in cars
Get drunk in local bars
Dream of being stars
Well I lived all my life on planet earth

I saw a man on a stage
Scream put me back in my cage
I saw him hang by his tie
I saw enough to make me cry
On planet earth
On planet earth

I lived all my life on planet earth
I lived all my life on planet earth
On planet earth
(repeat)

Swelling Itching Brain
Gotta nervous kind of feeling
Gotta painful yellow headache
Every picture in every magazine’s

Come real
Every face looks out
And screams at me too real
Cold sweat on my collar
Dripping to my boots
The waves of nauseous pain
Sets off the pressure pad alarms
Gotta get outta here
Gotta get outta here
Gotta get outta here
Gonna get outta here

Gotta painful swelling brain
Banging in my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick

Gotta swelling itching pain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta swelling itching pain
Clutching at my brain
Gotta painful swelling brain
In the back of my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick
Gotta swelling itching pain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta swelling itching pain
Clutching at my brain
Gotta painful swelling brain
Got me laying in the floor
Gotta painful swelling brain
Think I left my senses

Gotta swelling itching pain
Seems like endless torture
Gotta swelling itching pain
Banging in my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
In the back of my head
Gotta painful swelling brain
And I called off sick
Gotta painful swelling brain
Got me pulling out my hair
Gotta painful swelling brain
Clutching at my brain
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Driving me up the wall
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Gripping at my eyes
Ears, nose and mouth
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
It’s bloating my thoughts
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Leaves me holding the front door now

Gotta swelling itching pain
Swelling itching pain
Clutching at my brain
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Got me lying on the floor
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Going out of my skull
Gotta painful swelling brain

Painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Burning up my thoughts
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Gripping at my eyes
Ears, nose and mouth
Gotta painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Painful swelling brain
Tearing me apart

Songwriters: Mothersbaugh, Mark Allen
