The fourth installment of my sucky art series based on Talking Heads’ album Remain In Light- “Houses In Motion.”

I see this song as being about someone who is so dead-set in his beliefs, so sure that he can reach his dream if he follows a narrow path, that he doesn’t bother to stop and look around himself for better opportunities. His entire life is built around trying to achieve this dream that will never come, something as strange as “houses in motion.” His wife gives up hope on him, and yet he continues to “dig,” hoping to find something meaningful around himself. He’s digging his own grave, dead-seat on finding the other side of the Earth, and doesn’t realize that he’s actually digging his own grave in the process.
