David Byrne has said he wrote this 1985 MTV favorite about a girl he once knew growing up in the Baltimore area who took acid while lying in the grass near a Yoo-hoo factory: "And she was lying in the grass/And she could hear the highway breathing." The girl in the song has an out-of-body experience; Byrne, we're assuming, has been there once or twice, with or without chemical help.
