@SONG: It's No Game (No.1)
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

Shirueto ya kage ga kaku mei o miteiru
Mo tengoku no giu no kai dan wa nai

Ore genjitsukara shime dasare
Nani ga okkote iru ka wakara nai

Doko ni kyokun wa aruka
Hitobito wa yabi oorareteiru

Konna dokusaisha ni igashime rareru nowa kanashi

Namnino kiroku eiga
Hioteki o se ni shita koibi to tach
Michi ni ishi o nage reba
Konago na ni kundake
Kino ni hutao sureba
Kyo hu wa masu
Ore no atama ni tama o buchi kome ba
Shinbun wa kaki tateru
 

@SONG: Up the Hill Backwards
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

The vacuum created by the arrival of freedom
And the possibilities it seems to offer
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
A series of shocks - sneakers fall apart
Earth keeps on rolling - witnesses falling
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
Yea yea yea - up the hill backwards
It'll be alright ooo -ooo

While we sleep they go to work
We're legally crippled It's the death of love
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
More idols than realities
I'm O.K. - you're so-so
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
It's got nothing to do with you
If one can grasp it
Yea yea yea - up the hill backwards
It'll be alright ooo -ooo
 

@SONG: Scary Monsters (and SuperCreeps)
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

She had a horror of rooms she was tired you can't hide beat
And when I looked in her eyes they were blue but nobody home
She could've been a killer if she didn't walk the way she do
She'd opened strange doors that we'd never close again

She began to wail jealousies screams
Waiting at the lights know what I mean

Scary monsters supercreeps keep me running running scared
Scary monsters supercreeps keep me running running scared

She asked me to stay and I stole her room
She asked for my love and I gave her a dangerous mind
Now she's stupid in the streets and she can't socialise
I love the little girl and I'll love her till the day she dies

Jimmy's guitar sound jealousies scream
Waiting at the lights know what I mean

Scary monsters supercreeps keep me running running scared
 

@SONG: Ashes yo Ashes
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no don't say it's true
They got a message from the Action Man
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following

The shrieking of nothing is killing me
Just pictures of Japgirls in synthesis
And I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
(But I'm hoping to kick)
But the planet is glowing

Ashes to ashes funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junky
Strunk out in heavens high
Hitting an all time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with my valuable friend
I'm happy hope you're happy too
One flash of light but no smoking pistol
I've never done good things
I've never done bad things
I've never done anything out of the blue
I want an axe to break the ice
I want to come down right now

Ashes to ashes funk to funky
We know Major Tom's a junky
Strunk out in heavens high
Hitting an all time low

My mama said to get things done
You better not mess with Major Tom
 

@SONG: Fashion
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

There's a brand new dance
But I don't know its name
That people from bad homes
Do again and again
It's big and it's bland
Full of tension and fear
They do it over there
But they don't do it here

Fashion - Turn to the left
Fashion - Turn to the right
We are the goon squad
And we're coming to town
Beep-Beep - Beep-Beep

Listen to me - don't listen to me
Talk to me - don't talk to me
Dance with me - don't dance with me
No - Beep-Beep - Beep-Beep

There's a brand new talk
But it's not very clear
That people from bad homes
Are talking this year
It's loud and it's tasteless
I've not heard it before
Shout it when you're dancing
On the -er dance floor

Fashion - Turn to the left
Fashion - Turn to the right
We are the goon squad
And we're coming to town
Beep-Beep - Beep-Beep

Listen to me - don't listen to me
Talk to me - don't talk to me
Dance with me - don't dance with me
No - Beep-Beep - Beep-Beep

Oop bop - do do do do do do do do
Fa fa fa fa - Fashion
 

@SONG: Teenage Wildlife
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

How come you only want tomorrow
With its promise of something hard to do
A real life adventure worth more than pieces of gold
Blue skies above and sun on your arms strength in your stride
And hope in those squeaky clean eyes
You'll get chilly receptions everywhere you go
Blinded with desire I guess the season is on

So you train by shadow boxing, search for the truth
But it's all used up
You break open your million dollar weapon
Still you push your luck
A broken nosed mogul are you
One of the new wave boys
Same old thing in brand new drag
Comes sweeping into view
As ugly as a teenage millionaire
Pretending it's a whizz kid world
And you'll take me aside
And say
David what shall I do
They wait for me in the hallway
And I'll say don't ask me I don't know any hallways
But they move in numbers and they've got me in a corner
I feel like a group of one
They can't do this to me
I'm not some piece of teenage wildlife

Those midwives to history put on their bloody robes
The word is that the hunted one is out there on his own
You're alone for maybe the last time
And you breathe for a long time
Then you howl like a wolf in a trap
And you daren't look behind
You fall to the ground like a leaf from a tree
And look up one time at that vast blue sky
Scream out aloud as they shoot you down
No, no I'm not a piece of teenage wildlife

And no one will have seen and no one will confess
Fingerprints will prove that you couldn't pass the test
And there'll be others on the line filing past
Who'll whisper low
I miss you he had to go
Each to his own
Just another piece of teenage wildlife
 

@SONG: Scream Like a Baby
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

Well I wouldn't buy the merchandise
And I wouldn't fight no war
And I mixed with other colours
But the nurse doen't care
And I hide under blankets
Or did I run away
I really can't remember
Last time I saw the light of day

But I remember Sam 'cause he was like me

Scream like a baby
Sam was a gun
But I never knew his last name
And we never had no fun

They came down hard on the faggots
They came down on the street
They came down harder on Sam
And we all knew he was beat

Thrown into the wagon
Blind fold chains and stomped on us
Took away our clothes and things
Pumped us full of strange drugs
And oh I saw Sam falling
Spitting in their eyes
But now I lay me down to sleep
But now I close my eyes
And I'm learning to be a part of society

Scream like a baby
Sam was a gun
But I never knew his last name
And we never had no fun

No athletic program, no discipline, no book
He just sat in the back seat
Swearing he'd seek revenge
But he jumped into the the furnace
Singing old songs we loves

Scream like a baby
Sam was a gun
But I never knew his last name
And we never had no fun
 

@SONG: Kingdome Come
Music and Lyrics by Tom Verlaine

Well I walked in the pouring rain
And I heard the voice that cries it's all in vain
The face of doom was shining in my room
I just need one day somewhere far away
Lord I just need one day

Well I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
And cutting this hay until the Kingdom comes
yes I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
It's my price to pay until the Kingdom comes

The river's so muddy but it may come clear
And I know too well what's keeping me here
I'm just a slave of a burning ray
Give me the night I can't take another sight
Please give me the night

Well I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
And cutting this hay until the Kingdom comes
yes I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
It's my price to pay until the Kingdom comes

The sun keeps beating down the wall's a mile high
Up in the towers they're watching me hoping I'm gonna die
But they'll open these cells when the Kingdom comes
I won't be breaking no rocks when the Kingdom comes
yes they'll open these cells when the Kingdom comes
I won't hear their talk when the Kingdom comes
I'm going up for pardon when the Kingdom comes
Well pardon me when the Kingdom comes

I won't be breaking no rock
I won't be breaking no rock
I won't be breaking no rock
When the Kingdom comes
 

@SONG: Because You're Young
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

Psychodelicate girl - come out to play
Little metal faced boy - don't stay away
He's so war torn and resigned - she can't talk anymore
What are they trying to prove - what are they hoping to find

It's love back to front and no sides - like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
Hope I'm wrong but I know

Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams
A million scars

He punishes hard - was loving her such a crime
She took back everything she said
Left him nearly out of his mind
They're people I know - people I love
They seem so unhappy - dead or alive

It's love back to front and no sides - like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
Hope I'm wrong but I know

Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams
A million scars
 

@SONG: It's No Game (No.2)
Music and Lyrics by Bowie

Silhouettes and shadows watch the revolution
No more free steps to heaven
Just walky-talky - heaven or hearth
Just big heads and drums - full speed and pagan
Well it's no game

I am barred from the event
I really don't understand the situation
So where's the moral
People have their fingers broken
To be insulted by these fascists - it's so degrading
It's no game

Documentaries on refuges
Couples 'gainst the target
Throw the rock upon the road and
It breaks into pieces
Draw the blinds on yesterday
And it's all so much scarier
Put a bullet in my brain
And it makes all the papers

It's no game

Children 'round the world
Put camel shit on the wall
Making carpets on treadmills
Or garbage sorting

And it's no game
