LAURIE ANDERSON
Born Never Asked
 It was a large room. Full of people. All kinds.And they had all arrived at the same buildingat more or less the same time.And they were all free. And they were allasking themselves the same question:What is behind that curtain?You were born. And so you're free. So happy birthday.
Language Is A Virus
Paradiseis exactly likewhere you are right now.Only much muchBetter.I saw this guy on the trainand he seemed to have gotten stuckin one of those abstract trances.And he was going: "Ugh . . . Ugh . . . Ugh . . . "And Fred said:l think he's in some kind of pain. I think it's a pain cry.And I said: "Pain cry?Then language is a virus."Language! It's a virus!Language! It's a virus!Well I was talking to a friendAnd I was saying:I wanted you.And I was looking for yov.But I couldn't find you. I couldn't find you.And he said: Hey!Are you talking to me?Or are you just practicingfor one of those performances of yours?Huh?

Language! It's a virus!Language! It's a virus!He said: I had to write that letter to your mother.And I had to tell the judge that it was you.And I had to sell the car and go to Florida.Because that's just my way of saying (It's a charm.)That I love you. And I (It's a job.)Had to call you at the crack of dawn (Why?)And list the times that I've been wrong.Cause that's just my way of sayingThat I'm sorry. (It's a job.)Language! It's a virus!Language! It's a virus!ParadiseIs exactly likeWhere you are right nowOnly much much (It's a shipwreck)Better. (It's a job.)You know? I don't believe there's sucho thing as TV. I mean -They just keep showing youthe same pictures over and over.And when they talk they just make soundsThat more or less synch upWith their lips.That's what I think!Language! It's a virus!Language! It's a virus!Language! It's a virus!Well I dreamed there was an islandthat rose up from the sea.And everybody on the islandwas somebody from TV.And there was a beautiful viewbut nobody could see.Cause everybody on the islandwas saying: Look at me! Look at me!Look at me! Look at me!Because they all lived on an islandthat rose up from the sea.
