You’ve Been Around – David Bowie

Where’s the pain in the violent night?
I’m depressed by the grin
I stay over many years
I should have thought of that
For the love of the money
Like a black-hearted violin
It’s the nature of being

It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell bad from wrong
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me

Where the flesh meets the spirit world
Where the traffic is thin
I slip from a vacant view
I should have thought of that
And the sound of tomorrow
Like a black-hearted vile thing
Like the silence of tension
It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell good from bad
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
Can’t pass you by
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-change!
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
but you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
can’t pass you by

Seven Years In Tibet – David Bowie

“Are you OK?
You’ve been shot in the head
And I’m holding your brains”
The old woman said
So I drink in the shadows
Of an evening sky
See nothing at all

The stars look so special
And the snow looks so old
The frail form is drifting
Beyond the orc’s zone
Time to question the mountain
Why pigs can fly
It’s nothing at all

I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes
I praise to you
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes away
I praise to you
Nothing ever goes, nothing ever goes
Nothing

The Supermen – David Bowie

When all the world was very young
And mountain magic heavy hung
The supermen would walk in file
Guardians of a loveless isle
And gloomy browed with superfear their tragic endless lives

Could heave nor sigh
In solemn, perverse serenity, wondrous beings chained to life

Strange games they would play then
No death for the perfect men
Life rolls into one for them
So softly a supergod cries

Where all were minds in uni-thought
Power weird by mystics taught
No pain, no joy, no power too great
Colossal strength to grasp a fate
Where sad-eyed mermen tossed in slumbers

Nightmare dreams no mortal mind could hold
A man would tear his brother’s flesh, a chance to die
To turn to mold.

Far out in the red-sky
Far out from the sad eyes
Strange, mad celebration
So softly a supergod cries

Far out in the red-sky
Far out from the sad eyes
Strange, mad celebration
So softly a supergod dies

Seven – David Bowie

I forgot what my father said
I forgot what he said
I forgot what my mother said
as we layed upon your bed

A city full of flowers
a city full of rain
I got seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die

I forgot what my brother said
I forgot what he said
I don’t regret anything at all
I remember how he wept

On a bridge of violent people
I was small enough to cry
I got seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die

Hold my face before you
still my trembling heart
Seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die

The Gods forgot they’ve made me
so I forgot them to
I listen to the shadows
I play among their graves

My heart is never broken
my patience never tried
I got seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die
Seven days to live my life
or seven ways to die
