I’m sinking in the quicksand
of my thought
And I ain’t got the power anymore

If the homework brings you down
Then we’ll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

We bought a lot of things
to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won’t dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
On what to say to people
when they pick on you

Song Kooks by David Bowie

She walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she’s hooked to the silver screen.

See their faces in golden rays
Don’t kid yourself they belong to you

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes

We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still
She sucked my dormant will
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My God, she shook me cold

Song She Shook Me Cold by David Bowie

Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply
And I was seething, breathing deeply
Spitting sentry, horned and tailed
Waiting for you

In my madness
I see your face in mine
I keep a photograph
It burns my wall with time
An Occasional Dream
Of mine

Something tells me that you hide
When all the world is warm and tired
You cry a little in the dark
Well so do I
