No Control Lyrics

by David Bowie

You stay away from the future
Back away from the light
It's all deranged
No control

Sit tight in your corner
Don't tell God your plans
It's all deranged
No control

If I could control tomorrow's haze
The darkest shore would not bother me
If I can't control the web we weave
My life will be lost in falling leaves

Every single move's uncertain
Don't tell God your plans
It's all deranged
No control

I shall live my life on bended knee
If I can't control my destiny
You've gotta have a scheme, you've gotta have a plan
In the world of today, for tomorrow's man

No control

Stay away from the future
Don't tell God your plans
It's all deranged
No control

Forbidden words deafen me
(No, no)
In memory, no control
(No, no)
See how far a sinful man
(No, no)
Burn his tracks, his bloody robes

You've gotta have a scheme, you've gotta have a plan
In the world of today, for tomorrow's man
I should live my life on bended knee
If I can't control my destiny

No control
I can't believe I've no control
It's all deranged
I can't believe I've no control
It's all deranged
Deranged
Deranged
