​Some Things Never Change

This song is by Devo and appears on the album Total Devo (1988).

(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
(Hang, hang, hang, hang, hang)

Some things never change
Some things never change

(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)

I saw the news today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
A thousand starry skies we've seen before
(Hang your head)

Small minds play at some big time games
And everybody else pays
Make no mistake, they're on the take
They like to keep it that way

Some things never change
Some things never change

I saw the light today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
It came on flashing bright in red and blue
(Hang your head)

The man steps in with a terminal grin
Blue skies turn to gray
Young men die and the children cry
Why is It always the same?

[This verse on Cassette Version]
Life must be eaten or at least bitten into
To get past the surface, the moment of truth
You know when it's right, it's sweet deep inside
It's real and it's better that some things don't change

(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)

I saw the news today, oh boy
(Hang your head)
A thousand pictures of the lies we live
(Hang your head)

Small minds play at some big time games
And everybody else pays (hang your head)
They're on the take and they don't give breaks
They like to take it away

Some things never change
(Hang your head)
Some things never change
(Hang your head)

Man steps in with a terminal grin
Blue skies turn to gray (hang your head)
Young men die and the children cry
Why is it always the same?

(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
(Hang your head)
