Imagining a world without David Bowie.


This evening feels like an unmade bed
Placed in the center of an empty ring
Blood on the canvas
Spit in the buckets
But the fighters went home

Crowds had seen this before
Crippled crows squawking over bread crumbs
No more fighters
Children of an angry god
No more fighters
Fighting their angry god

I hear the ground with my feet
I taste the air with my ears
Nothing but noise
No more waters flowing from the mouth
No more ships sailing from the east
Nothing but Noise

Cardboard cities
Rising up from the sand
Don't hide away, sun
Don't hide away, sun

Torrents advancing
Architects weeping
Nothing but noise
Melt into rivers
No more fighters
Nothing but noise

Violently shake me
I am your maraca
Let me announce you
I am your drum
I paint by numbers
My mind's not my own
It's all in my fingers

All that I steal
It's all that you teach me
Nothing but noise
Inside this piano
In my final breath
Nothing but noise
Vibrating my brain
Emptying my heart
Nothing but noise
