crash lyrics – david byrne

i’m tired of good-byes and burials
friends i have known
some i just met
standing around
it’s hard to forget – now isn’t it?

the war started in bethlehem
a quarrel between holy men
rocket’s red glare
night without end
burning my eyes
it’s hard to forget – now isn’t it?

and if our cells are our destiny
i want to be free of biology
you are my friend
but i hurt you, too
it is not what
i intended to do
i saw my love by the restaurant
diggin’ for home fries in a garbage can
ice cream and cake
sweetness and light
a bottle of wine
now that would be nice – wouldn’t it?
