Devo

Devo ( /ˈdiːvoʊ/, originally /diːˈvoʊ/) is an American punk rock/New Wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
A real nice guy with a na na na na nasty side
In trouble
He tried to hide from himself
Good gawd sad man
Couldn't face up to the yin and the yang
Everybody

All of us got a shadow
Who knows what lurks in the hearts of men
The shadow knows

Between the intention and the expression
Between the emotion and the response

Sometimes I fail to follow through
On things that I want to do
And other times I find myself doing the very things I hate

Reverend Jimmy and Tammy Belle
Big time pumpers with a story to sell
Wait a minute
Their finger's pointing at you
Pay attention, listen up
Don't try to deny it or cover it up
Everybody
All of us got a shadow
