The band is out of tune with each other; it's most obvious in the banjo and acoustic playing the same line.
Also, the first lyrics are are:
Home - is where I want to be
Pick me up and turn me round
I feel numb - burn with a weak heart
(So I) guess I must be having fun
The less we say about it the better
Make it up as we go along
These were butchered. It's as if it doesn't even matter.
Also, do you have to completely alter the melody to make it your own? Why not just write a tune inspired by Talking Heads?
