Dark woman in the water drowning
Sinking in a funny way
Black footing full of faces floating
Mimicking our final days

    The reason why you think it sounds like Talking Heads is because Byrne ripped him off so much.

    Left field, slightly skewed and sinister pop rock. I always have the feeling that underneath every John Cale recording there is a classic piece of songwriting waiting to get out......he has a brilliant way of making his songs sound 'interesting' and not middle of the road. I love his music :))

    It does sound a little like the Talking Heads, but the effects and feedback are definitely Cale's.

    Love that viola and the creepy sounds in the background. Cale knows how to scare people. :-)
