Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth You pull on your finger, then another finger, then cigarette The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget Ohhh, you're a rock n' roll suicide...
My theme song, I suppose, after being voted by secret straw poll as the graduate “Most Likely To Be a Rock and Roll Suicide By Our Ten-year Reunion”.
Lovely people I went to school with to have a dead pool for folks when we’re only 18, amiright?
Proved them wrong, obviously. But it still sticks in the craw when I think about it. I’m pretty certain those are not the people I still keep up with on a casual basis today, but it was a secret poll.
One of my favorite Bowie songs from my favorite Bowie album ever.
