Time won't change you
Money won't change you
I haven't got the faintest idea
Everything seems to be up in the air at this time

I need something you change your mind

Drugs won't change you
Religion won't change you

Science won't change you
Looks like I can't change you
I try to talk to you, to make things clear
but you're not even listening to me...
And it comes directly from my heart to you...

I need something to change your mind.

Creepy in a good way, in an originally new wave manner and TH was the master band at this. Science won’t change you....love the lyrics!
I have trouble believing anyone ever thought this was good.

Timely lyrics too for the Chief Twit and other megalomaniac "leaders" today. What TH put into words in 1979, people more desparate to achieve something put into stones, bullets and bombs. One can understand their frustration, if not their misguided and ultimately futile violence.

But apart from all that, this music and singing sounds awful to me - a solid 2. I would not normally mark a song down from its current average, out of respect for those who do appreciate it. But this and many Bob Dylan songs are exceptions.

Edit... I just noticed the name of the album that this track came from. Well... that figures.

Now please excuse me, I have a bomb shelter to build.
 
Can you find another pulpit and platform to spew your  political views and leave RP to just music.  There are tons of other places to find others to echo to your thoughts.

Thank
Generally, I like Talking Heads, but this is not one of their great songs.

Timely lyrics during these pandemic days.

seems appropriate to me.
thanks Bill.
