Quicksand (Bowie David)

I'm closer to the Golden Dawn Immersed in Crowley's uniform Of imagery I'm living in a silent film Portraying Himmler's sacred realm Of dream reality I'm frightened by the total goal Drawing to the ragged hole And I ain't got the power anymore No I ain't got the power anymore I'm the twisted name On Garbo's eyes Living proof of Churchill's lies I'm destiny I'm torn between the light and dark Where others see their targets Divine symmetry Should I kiss the viper's fang Or herald loud The death of Man I'm sinking in the quicksand Of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore [CHORUS] Don't believe in yourself Don't deceive with belief Knowledge comes With death's release I'm not a prophet Or a stone age man Just a mortal With the potential of a superman I'm living on I'm tethered to the logic Of Homo Sapien Can't take my eyes From the great salvation Of bullshit faith If I don't explain what you ought to know You can tell me all about it On, the next Bardo I'm sinking in the quicksand Of my thought And I ain't got the power anymore [CHORUS]
