Blackout Lyrics

by David Bowie

Oh you, you walk on past
Your lips got a smile on your face
(Your scalding face)
To the cage, to the cage

She was a beauty in a cage
Too, too high a price
To drink rotting wine from your hands, your
(Fearful hands)

Get me to a doctors', I've been told
Someone's back in town, the chips are down
I just cut and blackout
I'm under Japanese influence and my honor's at stake

The weather's grim, ice on the cages
Me, I'm Robin Hood
And I puff on my cigarette
Panthers are steaming, stalking, screaming

If you don't stay tonight
I will take that plane tonight
I've nothing to lose, nothing to gain
I'll kiss you in the rain

Kiss you in the rain
(Kiss you in the rain)
Kiss you in the rain
(Kiss you in the rain)
In the rain
(In the rain)

Get me to the doctor
Get me off the streets
(Get some protection)
Get me on my feet
(Some direction)

Hot air gets me into a blackout
Oh, get me off the streets
Get some protection
Oh get me on my feet

While the streets block off
Getting some skin
Exposure to the blackout
(Get some protection)
Get me on my feet
(Get some direction)

Oh, get me on my feet
Get me off the streets
(Get some protection)
Get a second, get
Yeah, get a second breath of advice
And a second blow
