Dialog Box (2004/ Live at Bonnaroo)

David Byrne

I'm a rich man,
Picture this
Bumping lips
Everyone talks
Do a dialogue box
They shake and bake
Make a cranky face
They got rocks in the head
Got rocks in the bed
Pull the hood down
Grab the fold out
Is it too loud?
Is it all right?
Makin' contact
And you know that
Need a tight fit
To survive
Romeo
Said Juliette
Got a dialogue box
Hey look at me, that's my answer
All Sparkly white
Shiny bright
A genuine smile
The Renegade style
Gonna heat 'em up
And stir the pot
bake it a while
Then cool on the side
Tribulation
Revelation
Absolution
Prophesized
I'm a poor man
But the main thing
I'm alive
Lost in Space
Cosmic haze
Beautiful wreck
Special effect
Clean and pure
Swift and sure
I'm ready to drop
In a dialogue box
Decoration
Innovation
My creation
Any size
If you try it
And you like it
You can have it customized
Gonna test ya
With a gesture
Do I feel ya?
Are ya scared?
In the darkness
In the details
At the movies
Or a play
All crinkled up
Delirious
Fall through the cracks
In a dialogue box
With a smiley bump
Gonna line 'em up
And the question I ask
Hey look at me
That's my answer
