Talking Heads – Psycho Killer lyrics

I can't seem to face up to the facts
I'm tense and nervous and I
Can't relax
I can't sleep 'cause my bed's on fire
Don't touch me I'm a real live wire

Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run run run run run run run away
Psycho Killer
Qu'est-ce que c'est
Fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-far better
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, away

You start a conversation you can't even finish it.
You're talking a lot, but you're not saying anything.
When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
Say something once, why say it again?


Ce que j'ai fait ce soir là
Ce qu'elle a dit ce soir là
Réalisant mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire, OK
We are vain and we are blind
I hate people when they're not polite


Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Please input the reason why these lyrics are bad:

    I think the song is about how lots of people can turn into "psycho killers" because he says psycho killer, qu'est-ce qu c'est (which means what is this or it) and then he is telling everyone to run far away. The french interlude says, what I did tonight, what she said tonight, release my hope as I jump to glory. So he is jumping to glory because he isn't a psycho killer!
