"Something Ain't Right" as written by David Byrne and Terry Allen....
Prime-time in the living rooms
And how all the drapes are closed
Moonlight shinin' from above
(It) seems that everybody knows (that)

Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right

Well, god can turn the world around
And he can push it in the dirt
And he can tear it all apart
And he don't care who all gets hurt

Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right

There's a place where money grows on trees
(But) the only way to reach it's on your knees

c'mon down ? you old fart
Let's see if you have got a heart
It ain't true ? it's all lies
Are you the devil in disguise
I won't give up ? won't bow down
I'm gonna tear your playhouse down

Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right

Face to face ? man to man
I've seen the lord and you ain't him
It's our life ? it's our time
You don't care if we sink or swim

Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right

Twinkle twinkle twinkle little star
Who the hell now do you think you are?

Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right
Oh ? something ain't right

    General CommentLooks like DB isn't a big fan of religion. Seems like a song ranting about God, and that something is not right with the whole situation and religion's effect on modern society.
