Interesting facts about me

your Dealer in the Basement here,
from the End of the World, to Your Town.
or... from New Jersey, right next to New York City.


expand your mind -
below are a few of the 'cut up lyrics' technique
that many do not notice -
as wikipedia tries to distort your focus only to Bowie as a writer with this technique.

start out simple with 'light' vs. 'dark' ...
and you can uncover the 2nd dimension in lyrics,
as is, in painting, music, movies, theatre or other arts

not always a nice message though.
if you learn about that 'Meal Ticket'
you will figure some of it out:


Light - Dark - Day - Night - Sun - Moon - Rain - Morning - Evening etc.


You better get your coat dear
It looks like rain (Madman)

I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain (Daniel)

Why's it never light on my lawn (Grey Seal)

Philadelphia Freedom, shine a light... (Philadelphia Freedom)

And just enough time for the night to pass by without warning  (Better Off Dead)

see there's men who get paid for being slaves, and men who get paid for being free,
and there's men behind bars who pray for the light, and men in the suburbs who pray for the night... (Screw You - Young Man Blues)

Let me drink deeply from the water and the wine
Light colored candles in dark dreary mines  (This Song Has No Title)


I've a constant ache in the morning light
Its on account of the night before  (You're So Static)

Turn on the T.V., shut out the lights
Roy Rogers is riding tonight  (Roy Rogers)

Away in the distance, there's a blue flashing light...
someone's in trouble, somewhere tonight. (Better Off Dead)

And the season's can change all the light,
from the grey to the dim.
But the light in his eyes,will seem no more so bright,
as the sheep that he's locked in the pen.  (Gulliver)

He ain't got no distractions, don't hear no buzzers and bells,
don't see lights a flashin' - plays by sense of smell   (Pinball Wizard)

i have to say my friends, we're looking for a light ahead,
in the distance a candle burns, salvation keeps the hungry children fed.  (Salvation)

The spotlight's hitting something
That's been known to change the weather  (Bennie and the Jets)

It's no good living in the sun
Playing guitar all day

Down in the ground where the sun don't pound
I hibernate in English turf   (Stinker)

Through the grease streaked windows of an all night cafe
We watched the arrested get taken away  (Better Off Dead)

I heard of a place at the back of town
Where you really kick the shit when the sun goes down  (Your Sister Can't Twist...)

But you misread my meaning when I met you
Closed the door and left me blinded by the light  (Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me)

And I get bombed for breakfast in the morning
I get bombed for dinner time and tea  (Social Disease)

I saw the lights along the pier
That made my senses sing  (Grimsby)

that the candlelight fell like a crescent,
upon your feather pillow  (Pinky)

Maybe if I promise not to say a word
They can get me back before the morning light  (I've Seen The Saucers)

turn out the lights, oh i just want to go to sleep... (Tonight)


Hold me closer tiny dancer
Count the headlights on the highway  (Tiny Dancer)


When the rain set in  (Candle In The Wind)


And a baby cried
And I saw a light
And I wondered where
And I wondered why
There'd be a loss of life
Down here tonight    (Western Ford Gateway)


I heard the ambulance scream
I saw the red light flashing, flashing  (Feed Me)

Turn around and say good morning to the night
They know not if it's dark outside or light



Common people live with me
Where the light has never shone 
I'm a light world away
From the people who make me stay
Sitting on the bad side of the moon  
(Bad Side Of The Moon)

So at last we reach the end
The lights go down on cue  


I'd just allow a fragment of your life to wander free
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
    (Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me)
