"Burning Down the House" !
Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz is a fan of funk, and it was a P-Funk show in New York City that inspired this track. When he heard the crowd imploring the band to "Burn Down The House" (this is before "The Roof Is on Fire"), he got the idea for the title. As he explained in a 1984 interview with National Public Radio (NPR), he and Talking Heads bassist Tina Weymouth, who is also his wife, created the original track in a jam, then took it to the band where they refined the groove. To form the lyrics, they picked words that fit the rhythms, which is why the words don't make a lot of sense. This is common practice in the world of funk, where you don't want the lyric to get in the way of the groove on a feel good song.
Just like the protests. What's going on in these "Riot Demonstrations" doesn't make much sense at all, but the "Funk" sure sounds good to a lot of folks ! Maybe they'll find the "Message" they wanted to portrait..... after the "Groove" Stops ?
The Title sure fits though !
I love George Clinton and P Funk. The talking heads were great too.
It is long, but the ending part ‘Soon’ is beautiful. It’s a message of war then peace.

NOTE: Peace to the young Vietnam Veterans. Although, I knew the song, "19" when it was climbing the charts, as a young person I never clued in on the age of the men who served until today.
We starve, look at one another, short of breathWalking proudly in our winter coatsWearing smells from laboratoriesFacing a dying nation of moving paper fantasyListening for the new told liesWith supreme visions of lonely tunes
Somewhere, inside something there is a rush ofGreatness, who knows what stands in front ofOur lives, I fashion my future on films in spaceSilence tells me secretlyEverythingEverything
There is a historic plaque/sign that designates him and what happened.
People kept shooting the sign and riddling it with bullet holes.
They finally had to put up a plaque that was bullet proof.
