"The Whole Man" as written by and David Byrne....
We're talking about the whole man
In body, in mind, and in spirit
And you give the body what is good, good, good, good
You make him educated

What makes a home?
The answer is love
What is love when it's real?
The answer is beauty

We're talking about the whole man
When he's whole, we see him smile
But take just one part away from the rest
And now he's a a crocodile

What makes a home?
The answer is love
What is love when it's real?
The answer is beauty

Beauty through time
Culture and spirit
At home where he lives
He's up when he's in it
The heart and the home
Wherever he lives
He's up when he's down
He takes when he gives

How do the children draw a tree?
Zero and one, are you following me?
Human order, woman and man
So on and on, are you seeing the plan?

Going in circles, chasing the dollar
Like a Pac-Man, a vicious creature
Here, over here, the center is mankind
But I'll never be a teacher

What makes a home?
The answer is love
What is love when it's real?
The answer is beauty

Beauty through time
Culture and spirit
At home where he lives
He's up when he's in it
The heart and the home
Wherever he lives
He's up when he's down
He takes when he gives

He's a
Cosmos man
A cross to a flower
Switch, recycle
Ecological order

Cosmos man
A cross to a flower
Switch, recycle
Ecological order
