“Your circuits dead, there’s something wrong”…

He lives his life…
Like Walter Mitty…

Each dark night…
A different city…

Finding courage…
Round every corner…

To be extraordinary…
Not a life mourner…

Each new adventure…
Carefullly designed…

With colours so vivid…
They fucking blind…

And a beautiful girl…
Upon his arm…

Keeping her safe…
Away from harm…

Then leaving her…
As he moves on…

To another heartbeat…
And a different song…

But it’s not real…
It’s all in his head…

On the darker days…
He never leaves his bed…

The depression takes hold…
Grips him deep inside…

And for each black moment…
His Eye Will Not Cry…

Refusing to release…
Sealed up so tight…

As he fights his demons…
Every single night…

But no one sees…
And no one cares…

So he keeps it hidden…
As he could never share…

Because they won’t get it…
Or begin to understand…

How his life changed…
The day he lost her hand…

Mr Jones

Stars
Take in new meaning
Take in the dust from everyone
Part of all of us
The start of all of us
Shining brighter now
A million particles lighter now
A Blackstar is among them high
A Lazarus who knew
Who went up to the sky
Who has his own view
Lucky are we
Lucky is he
Sharing genius
In his own way
Leaving his way
These are the days of our lives
He lived and he loved the stars
Stardust you are
Forever now

Twisting…
Falling…
Can you hear the maker calling…

Confusing…
Confessing…
Is your faith, never ending…

Abandoning…
Denouncing…
Consequences are so frightening…

Fighting…
Cheating…
Stabbed heart is forever bleeding…

Something…
Nothing…
Bitter soul has lost all feeling…

Floating…
Drowning…
This cruel world is overwhelming…

Crying…
Flying…
Inside we’re all simply dying…

Losing…
Refusing…
Come on now, who on earth you fooling…

Listening…
Talking…
Ghost of the blackstar, forever haunting…

Waiting…
Watching…
Those electric eyes are always stalking…

RIP David Bowie…
