11.04.81 Zurich, Switzerland, intro to ´Independence Day´
´´I grew up in this….little town, was about 10,000 people, I guess….and….my father worked down at the local plastics´factory…and I used to, when I was a kid I used to go down and…he used to work the nightshift…and sometimes I´d go down there and bring, bring his lunch to him….and I´d watch him just moving stuff from one place to another…like, the noise so loud you couldn´t hear nothing, couldn´t say nothing to him ….and….I decided that if I was gonna….grow up and have to live like that way, that I´d die….and….he´d come home real early in the morning….and I´d see him again when I was off going to school….and it seems we never found the time ever sit down and talk about….´bout the things that when you´re 16 or 17 years old, you gotta talk to some-body about, it took us….it took us 30 years….just to be able to tell each other that we loved each other…and that´s not right, you know….so if you got any folks home…. don´t wait that long….”
