Thankyou, Mr. Bowie

you changed me with your labyrinth, altered me with words
undergoing ccch cch cchanges, you being my strange fascination
whiling away the time till drive in saturday
following your vague directions
memorizing every line
putting on my red shoes, dancing to the sound to your blues
weep for aladin sane, gazing into the eyes of the goblin king
freaking out in a moonage daydream purely to survive this life you made seem so dull
inspired by your style, set aflame by your ideas
my mind has become revolutionized because of you and theres nothing I can do
my story reinvented by your careful hand
comforted only by your voice
Because I know you're never ever gonna let me die and you"re never gonna get old
screaming at the pretty things, staying inside your lover's story
breezing through school as rebel, rebel
struggling to drive onward under pressure
as my world falls down, I'll give you my hands and break free from this rock n' roll suicide
carrying the knowledge that we can be heroes, just for one day
so, strangely enough.... you can live within me
hanging on to myself
dancing the magic dance like a young american
singing with ziggy stardust down in Suffragette City
having an occasional dream throughout these golden years
while all is hunky-dory
I am proud to say, when you rock n' roll with me, there is noone else I would rather be.
my boredom caused by sitting alone in every class with dumb people who dont know any music before the 2000s magically turned into some david bowie brilliance. I am not surprised
