Heaven

Everyone is trying
to get to the bar.
The name of the bar,
the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven
plays my favorite song.
Play it once again,
play it all night long.
Oh, Heaven
Heaven is a place
A place where nothing
nothing ever happens.
Heaven
Heaven is a place
a place where nothing
nothing ever happens.

— “Heaven” by David Byrne and Jerry Harrison of the Talking Heads, from the album “Fear of Music” (1979)

Me too. That’s why I liked the picture 🙂 The song has some of the same ambiguity.

Just curious how you did it…

I think Dick Cheney thought it was so nice he wanted to send his friend there early.
Ba-dum-bum.
