Hard rock song from before 1980 with talk box?

by Robert Waltemate
(Long Beach, WA, USA)

I had a cassette tape that I had found that someone had made sometime between 1980 and 1985, but the band on it was likely older. It had heavy guitar with only lyrics via talk box. About 10 years ago I saw a video of it on VH1 (I think) but it didn't show the song name at the end of the video. I think some of the lyrics may have been "fallow your shape in every detail..." "live or die..." "we know you'll be happy..." It was not supper fast and to me it had a gritty sound to it. I'm 46 years old and I have been trying to find this darn song for at least 32 years. The tape I had with the song had other songs, but I didn't care for them and none of them had any talk box in them that I can remember. From the video I think it was maybe a 3 piece band? Two electric guitars and a drummer, and they may have been wearing black leather? It has been so long ago, I can't be certain I am remembering the video right.

Any help would be great!!!
