Seems to fit the current alt news buzz
Almost forgot how special this album is. Love the Belew guitar squalls on The Great Curve.

Talking Heads - Crosseyed & Painless - Remain In Light


"Facts are simple and facts are straight
Facts are lazy and facts are late
Facts all come with points of view
Facts don't do what I want them to
Facts just twist the truth around
Facts are living turned inside out
Facts are getting the best of them
Facts are nothing on the face of things
Facts don't stain the furniture
Facts go out and slam the door
Facts are written all over your face
Facts continue to change their shape

I'm still waiting"

Here's another one this time from "Fear Of Music"
Animals

"They say they don't need money
They're living on nuts and berries
They say animals don't worry
You know animals are hairy?
They think they know what's best
They're making a fool of us
They ought to be more careful
They're setting a bad example
They have untroubled lives
They think everything's nice
They like to laugh at people
They're setting a bad example
(go ahead) laugh at me."

:lol: 8)

"And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world"


Elton John ~ 'Your Song'

"Rockets going up to the sky
leave us behind
you're so so high
a needle in my eye
Fading memories
of life on earth
you'll be painted
in a cave
when you return

We're nothing special
nothing at all
I want to love you
my whole life through,
We're nothing special
nothing at all
I want to love you
my whole life through

I kissed your face
wet with tears
That morning moon
they left our Sun
hold me little one
you'll see soon
when they return
our love will too

Silver spacemen in the sky
with guns on their back
they're ready to die
Silver spacemen in the sky
with guns on your back
we're ready to die"

'Rocket Ship'

Kirk Brandon of Spear Of Destiny

Hillside, slip and slide
Feel the pain, it's no surprise
Look out, look out
Thorn will be your love
