The Oracle of the Masks

[Made from the songs of David Bowie]

1-1-1: I’m stepping through the door
1-1-2: We like dancing and we look divine.
1-1-3: There is no other day
1-1-4: They scream my name aloud down into the well below
1-1-5: Now I’m back where I started from
1-1-6: Show me who you are
1-2-1: Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying.
1-2-2: All the roads were straight and narrow
1-2-3: You’ll lose your mind and play
1-2-4: Come and buy my little toys
1-2-5: Ready, set, go
1-2-6: Hey babe, your hair’s alright.
1-3-1: I’ll give you television.
1-3-2: You know, you know
1-3-3: I shall always watch you until my love runs dry
1-3-4: Nothing we can’t shake
1-3-5: There’s never gonna be enough bullets
1-3-6: I’m afraid of the world.
1-4-1: When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.
1-4-2: Nothing ever goes away
1-4-3: Dead ones and the living
1-4-4: I’m smiling
1-4-5: Just a small thin chance
1-4-6: There’ll be some blood no doubt about it
1-5-1: But her mummy is yelling “No”
1-5-2: No one can blame you for walking away
1-5-3: Sister, sister, please take me down, gotta get underground
1-5-4: I think maybe you feel the same
1-5-5: In search of new dreams.
1-5-6: And even down looks up
1-6-1: Daddy didn’t have no toys
1-6-2: And we don’t charge nothin’ (nothin’ at all)
1-6-3: Just as I can be so cruel
1-6-4: He took it all too far
1-6-5: Things that happened in the past only happened in your mind
1-6-6: Life is too easy, a plague seems quite feasible now or maybe a war, or I may kill you all
2-1-1: As long as there’s sun
2-1-2: Who do? You do.
2-1-3: I move the stars for no one.
2-1-4: Feed me no lies
2-1-5: Your eyes can be so cruel
2-1-6: As long as you’re still smiling
2-2-1: Let’s dance — put on your red shoes and dance the blues.
2-2-2: I’ll ruin everything you are
2-2-3: What kind of magic spell to use?
2-2-4: Can you dig our groovy feelin’?
2-2-5: Battle cries and champagne just in time for sunrise.
2-2-6: We are not your friends
2-3-1: Trap you with their beautiful eyes
2-3-2: I saw my baby, crying hard as babe could cry
2-3-3: She’s not sure if you’re a boy or a girl.
2-3-4: But we’ll come thru don’t doubt it
2-3-5: Waiting for something
2-3-6: Remember the dead
2-4-1: It’s a broken heart that dreams
2-4-2: I’ve been waiting for you
2-4-3: All things must pass.
2-4-4: Memories that flutter like bats out of hell
2-4-5: A million dead-end streets
2-4-6: Puts my trust in God and man
2-5-1: I got a better way
2-5-2: Dear when I dance with you, we move like the sea
2-5-3: Mother calls, but we don’t hear
2-5-4: There’s a starman waiting in the sky
2-5-5: Gone, Gone the water’s all gone
2-5-6: I’m not quite sure what you’re supposed to say
2-6-1: It’s only forever, not long at all
2-6-2: Then they take back everything that you have
2-6-3: I can’t answer why
2-6-4: there’s no one there
2-6-5: Achtung, achtung, these are your orders
2-6-6: And there’s never gonna be enough money
3-1-1: But I won’t look at that scar
3-1-2: Don’t tell me truth hurts, little girl, ’cause it hurts like hell
3-1-3: Waiting for the first move
3-1-4: You want more and you want it fast.
3-1-5: Open up your heart to me
3-1-6: It produced sounds of wailing, crying
3-2-1: and I’ll love her till the day she dies
3-2-2: I’m gonna be so good, just like a good boy should
3-2-3: Man is an obstacle, sad as the clown
3-2-4: They live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
3-2-5: They’re quite aware of what they’re going through
3-2-6: In the year of the scavenger, the season of the bitch
3-3-1: don’t believe in modern love
3-3-2: Show me all you are
3-3-3: Guardians of a loveless isle
3-3-4: In the valley of the dead man walks
3-3-5: Their jealousy’s spilling down
3-3-6: How many times does an angel fall?
3-4-1: Slap that baby, make him free
3-4-2: Saying no but meaning yes
3-4-3: I’ll place the sky within your eyes.
3-4-4: Oh, we can be heroes just for one day.
3-4-5: And the empty man you left behind
3-4-6: Makes no sense to fall.
3-5-1: creating a macabre shrine of remains
3-5-2: First they give you everything that you want
3-5-3: She’s not mine for eternity
3-5-4: it’s not your brain, it’s just the flame
3-5-5: Wasn’t too much fun at all
3-5-6: But you got problems oh-oh-oh-oh
3-6-1: I never lied to you, I hated when you lied
3-6-2: Louder than thunder
3-6-3: You’ve run so long, you’ve run so far.
3-6-4: And there’s nothing I can do.
3-6-5: As the pain sweeps through, makes no sense for you.
3-6-6: Just look through your window, look who sits outside
4-1-1: As long as there’s you
4-1-2: Looking for someone
4-1-3: When your thing gets wild
4-1-4: Turn and face the strange.
4-1-5: Ain’t got no clothes to worry about
4-1-6: We can beat them, forever and ever
4-2-1: Every thrill is gone.
4-2-2: This way or no way
4-2-3: t’s a god-awful small affair
4-2-4: You and me and nothing more
4-2-5: Just strut your nasty stuff,
4-2-6: Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?
4-3-1: Let the wind blow through your hair, be nice to the big blue sea
4-3-2: I would sit and blame the master first and last
4-3-3: Bad luck heh heh
4-3-4: Heaven is smiling down, heaven’s girl in a wedding gown
4-3-5: Everything I’ve done, I’ve done for you.
4-3-6: Oh I do believe in you.Yes I do.
4-4-1: In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
4-4-2: So where were the spiders
4-4-3: Down in the underground you’ll find someone true
4-4-4: Became the special man
4-4-5: Like dolphins can swim
4-4-6: Give me money for a change of face
4-5-1: I believe in magic
4-5-2: But don’t forget your date with me
4-5-3: And when she’s dreaming, I believe
4-5-4: Every time I thought I’d got it made, it seemed the taste was not so sweet
4-5-5: I can stare for a thousand years
4-5-6: Fill your heart with love today
4-6-1: Like a leper messiah
4-6-2: He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips
4-6-3: The writing’s on the wall
4-6-4: I know something is very wrong
4-6-5: just for show
4-6-6: We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
5-1-1: She opened strange doors
5-1-2: We’re painting our faces and dressing in thoughts
5-1-3: It’s all deranged – no control
5-1-4: Fear’s just in your head
5-1-5: Please trip them gently, they don’t like to fall
5-1-6: Walk out of her heart, walk out of her mind
5-2-1: Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
5-2-2: With God given ass
5-2-3: You’ve gotta have a scheme
5-2-4: But she’s a queen, and such are queens
5-2-5: Round and round the rumours fly
5-2-6: So I said “So long” and I waved “Bye-bye”
5-3-1: If she says she can do it, then she can do it
5-3-2: Torture comes and torture goes
5-3-3: Keep your mouth shut, you’re squawking like a pink monkey bird
5-3-4: There’s nothing more I need
5-3-5: But they think that we’re holding a secretive ball.
5-3-6: Full of blood, loving life and all it’s got to give
5-4-1: Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel
5-4-2: So it goes
5-4-3: Oh give me the night
5-4-4: Breathing in only doubt
5-4-5: Rebel Rebel, you’ve torn your dress.
5-4-6: They wore it out but they wore it well
5-5-1: She talked to God
5-5-2: As the world falls down.
5-5-3: And he’s always a little late
5-5-4: We’re choosing the path
5-5-5: Now she’s leading him on
5-5-6: It’s the nature of being
5-6-1: What a jolly boring thing to do
5-6-2: I don’t see the point at all
5-6-3: Yes, it could have been me
5-6-4: Look at that sky, life’s begun
5-6-5: Don’t fake it baby, lay the real thing on me
5-6-6: Speaks to the shadows
6-1-1: Take your passport and shoes
6-1-2: Femme fatales emerged from shadows to watch this creature fair
6-1-3: And your prayers they break the sky in two
6-1-4: But her friend is nowhere to be seen
6-1-5: Making love with his ego
6-1-6: I said “Do it again, do it again”
6-2-1: Yes, and I wonder why sometimes
6-2-2: It’s got nothing to do with you
6-2-3: Lady Stardust sang his songs of darkness and dismay
6-2-4: Can’t tell the bullshit from the lies
6-2-5: I could make it all worthwhile
6-2-6: And I heard a voice that cries
6-3-1: Yea! it was time to unfreeze
6-3-2: But, boy, could he play guitar
6-3-3: He’d like to come and meet us, but he thinks he’d blow our minds.
6-3-4: And the possibilities it seems to offer
6-3-5: Cracking all the mirrors in shame
6-3-6: I’m afraid I can’t.
6-4-1: Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply
6-4-2: why didn’t I say, no, no, no
6-4-3: Believing the strangest things, loving the alien
6-4-4: But I’ll be there for you-ou-ou.
6-4-5: if one can grasp it
6-4-6: And if you say hide, we’ll hide.
6-5-1: Every single move’s uncertain
6-5-2: For the love of the money
6-5-3: Falls upon dead ears
6-5-4: Back away from the light
6-5-5: So hold on to nothing, and he won’t let you down.
6-5-6: Stay away from the future
6-6-1: I’ve got nothing left to lose
6-6-2: With great expectations I change all my clothes
6-6-3: This ain’t rock’n’roll. This is genocide!
6-6-4: Now I’m older than movies
6-6-5: And there’s never gonna be enough drugs
6-6-6: Live to your rebirth and do what you will
