One of the greatest musical what ifs would be if Adrian Belew from King Crimson successfully replaced David Byrne for this album.

Drug use in one form or another is the same throughout the decades it wasn't any more special in the 80s when this was produced. Byrne wasn't on drugs....it's called creativity..... imagination......genius.....synergy even if you choose to believe different who cares... enjoy the art that's what it's here for.

You may ask yourself "Where does that highway go to?" And then you may remember "Oh, right, I live in the 21st century. My phone has GPS."

The fact that I’m just knowing there’s a music video for this song AND it was released this year is a bad shame

I always liked him. He's funny. He's like the actor John Galecki of The Big Bang Theory having seizures. I always love their songs.

"You can bounce if you wanna bounce Ball if you wanna ball Play if you wanna play Floss if you wanna floss It's alright... it's alright!" Of course this is a great song, I just wanted to mention a Jay-Z song that samples this just to piss off the hip-hop haters.

This song describes the plot of a Scanner Darkly. Or maybe vice versa, idk

My favorite t shirt I saw a man wearing one day walking all proud down the hall in the shopping mall said; 'go lay down'. It is what you say to your dog. I clapped my hand over my mouth so that people wouldn't see me laugh.

My science teacher played this once (thats how I got here) and he said that this is a story of a man who feels like a marrionette, like he has no control over his life, and the music itself is super good aside from the message. Also this looks like my uncle and I'm shook

The one thing I hate about this recording are the tom hits left and right in the stereo field, which are just way too loud, and often not even following the beat. What were they thinking??

everyone thinks that this kinda music is an outcome of drugs...... it is called "artistic creativity" and that is exactly why today's music sucks so hard..... because today's music lacks that phenomenon

And you may find yourself  Living in a shotgun shack And you may find yourself  In another part of the world And you may find yourself  Behind the wheel of a large automobile And you may find yourself in a beautiful house With a beautiful wife And you may ask yourself, well How did I get here? Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again after the money's gone Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground And you may ask yourself How do I work this? And you may ask yourself Where is that large automobile? And you may tell yourself This is not my beautiful house! And you may tell yourself This is not my beautiful wife! Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again after the money's gone Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was {Water dissolving and water removing There is water at the bottom of the ocean Under the water, carry the water Remove the water at the bottom of the ocean!} {Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again in the silent water Under the rocks, and stones there is water underground} Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again after the money's gone Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground And you may ask yourself What is that beautiful house? And you may ask yourself Where does that highway go to? And you may ask yourself Am I right? Am I wrong? And you may say yourself, "My God! What have I done?" Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again in to the silent water Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again after the money's gone Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Look where my hand was Time isn't holding up Time isn't after us Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Same as it ever was Letting the days go by (same as it ever was) Letting the days go by (same as it ever was) Once in a lifetime  Letting the days go by Letting the days go by The parts in the brackets were removed in this version.
