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 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)
