Demo EP was a self-produced, four-song EP single released by the southern California New Wave band Oingo Boingo. Produced by the band themselves and intended solely for radio stations and A&R representatives, it was limited to a total of 130 copies. Each cover was spray painted, with a different design on each copy, though known copies also included an Oingo Boingo flyer which read "Modern Music For Modern Reptiles". Copies of the EP are considered extraordinarily rare, with few members of the band even owning copies.
The Demo EP version of "Ain't This the Life" was later reissued on the 10" vinyl version of the Oingo Boingo EP in 1980 (for reasons unknown, the 12" version contained a new recording), while the versions of "Only a Lad" and "I'm So Bad" were reissued on all versions of that EP. Only "Forbidden Zone" has never been reissued anywhere else, although a vastly truncated version appears on the soundtrack for the film of the same name.

*The show Dilbert also used this song as the basis for it's intro theme, and it's known as "The Dilbert Zone."

Lyrics:

Living in the sixth dimension
Things get rough
Living in the sixth dimension
Can be tough
It's so hard when your on your own
When your on your own

Moving in the wrong direction
Brings bad luck
Living without protection
Really sucks

It's so hard when your on your own
You might fall into the Forbidden Zone

Going down, down, down
How far can you go?
You might fall into the Forbidden Zone
Going down, down, down
'Cross the border line
The guards look scary but the girls are pretty fine

I'm going down
I'm going down
I'm going down I go
Turning me around
Turning me around
Turning me around I know

Living in the sixth dimension
Moving in the wrong direction
Living in the sixth dimension
Moving in the wrong direction
Living in the sixth dimension
Moving in the wrong direction

It's so hard when you're on your own
When your on your own
The Forbidden Zone

Going down, down, down
How far can you go
You might fall into the Forbidden Zone
Going down, down, down
'Cross the border line
The guards look scary but the girls are pretty fine

Going round, round, round
Driving me insane
Everything looks different
But nothing has changed.
