One Inch Thoughts
Why don't we do the sophisticated thing and all sleep together?
Don't forget to keep your head warm
Made for a real world, all things must pass
And the shadow man is close at hand
Don't stay in a sad place, where they don't care how you are
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me
This really isn't bad you know
Ain't there one damn song that can make me break down and cry?
All is God and God is just a word
And the street overflows with folk who understand
And there's nothing to be desired
Andy where's my fifteen minutes?
Are those porcupines on your breasts?
Are you in a cult or something?
As I said before, I never repeat myself
Boy, you're really hooked on water, aren't you?
Fashion comes and goes... style doesn't
Did David ever play in a club called 'The Webb'?
Did Jimmy end up getting a sex change operation?
Down in space it's always Nineteen Eighty Two
He was never quite sure but really sane
He's from his own universe. The Bowie Universe
How I wonder where you are
I don't sit and wait, I don't give a damn
I had to phone someone, so I picked on you
I look at my watch it says 9:25 and I think...
I think I'm clean now, if you could pass me a towel I'll be on my way
I will show you such things my boy that will change the entire philosophy of your life
I wish I'd sent a Valentine
I'm interested in what Bowie does because I care about what he does
I'm not nearly as think as you drunk I am
I'm sorry, I can't leave it with you. It's not that I don't trust you
If I lived in Sweden, you'd really know about it.
If the money is lousy you can always come home
In nine hours and twenty three minutes you'll be mine
In order to change the world you have to change yourself first
In your fear seek only peace
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor
Open up your heart to me and I would be your slave
Never wear a new pair of shoes in front of him
Please make sure we get tomorrow
Please tell me if you don't get this message
Put down my sun visor and boy I really felt blue
So bloody your hands on the cactus tree
This is your bottle, keep it clean and tidy, bring it back on Friday
Turn back, Sarah. Turn back, before it's too late
Waiting for something, looking for someone
You go through stages where you wonder whether you are Christ, or just looking for him
You should call and see who answers
He sings a lovely counterpoint
David always likes to get in dresses if possible
Sussex. I don't know why, but I'll never remember that name
I live in my own little world, but it's ok, everyone knows me here
Have you ever wondered what Dandelion wine tastes like?
God is on top of it all
Did you guess that we've been done wrong?
Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?
Sometimes I think my head is so big because it's so full of dreams
Hands up who knew Major Tom was a junkie?
Somewhere she glows divine. Somewhere she wakes alone
He has one of the most outstanding faces of the 20th Century
How many damn songs can make you break down and cry?
Would you like to put a record on, Mr. Newton? Music doesn't disturb me
I thank God David is English
A nice gin and tonic, with four cubes of ice and a slice of lime. How's that sound, mister?
Tomorrow's rewards bloody skies of today
I think she might be ready to talk now
Should I believe that I've been stricken?
Ain't there a child I can hold without judging?
Satori must be something just the same
Time flies when you're having fun
Prayers... they hide the saddest view
I saw your film two and half times
Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life
Go back to your room, play with your toys and your costumes
Oh God, I could do better than that
Good God! Was it really yesterday?
How badly did David burn his hand during the Loving The Alien video?
There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and Shithead's
Screw Up Your Brother or He'll Get You In the End
How many one dollar secrets do you know?
Our mission: To boldly stay home and listen to David Bowie
Read? I have other people to do that for me. Taking notes
My, that sure is a fancy looking pen you got there
Cyclops?... Yes that's the one I'd get
What the hell is a near miss? If you nearly miss something, don't you hit it?
Oh yes, Mr. Sussex, we've been expecting you. Room 505, please
Why are there 3 dots after 'hours...'?
If you had a can of spray paint in your hand, what would you write on the wall right now?
Search through their one inch thoughts, then decide it couldn't be done
Please don't tell us were the sun goes
Look for the cause or signs of life
Watching all the world worn torn
We were done but you were fun boy
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
Get out of my mind, all of you! Go back where you belong!
I may be a gigolo... but I'm not a whore!
Open up your heart to me, show me who you are
I'm an instant star; just add water
Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful
Can you remember what your father said?
I wonder if Sailor ever did fight in a dance hall?
Can you remember what your brother said?
C'mon and get a good idea, c'mon and get it soon
Can you remember what your mother said?
Don't you wonder sometimes about sound and vision
Don't let the milk float ride your mind
Did Arthur slow down and stick to thirty?
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't forget the Motor City
Did the world just explode? Don't recognise anyone
Do you hear what I hear? Do you see what I see?
Imagine if all the sheep in the sky stopped jumping over the fence, we'd never be able to get to sleep at night now would we?
Don't be afraid of the man in the moon
Do you think that your face looks the same?
Does he fly like Mr. Superman, speak Chinese, French and Dutch?
Did you ever have a dream or two, where the hero is a guy named you?
I thought that rabbit was eating your head
Do you remember, your President Nixon?
Does my face show some kind of glow?
Do you think that your face looks the same?

It's only forever, not long at all

Electric blue. That's the colour of my room where I will live
Have you ever been to Oxford Town?
If David Jones had of been born David Smith would he of still changed his name to Bowie?
Humble pie or bitter fruit?
Have you ever woken up one day with the feeling that you'd been away?
If Mark Plati felt numb one day, would he suddenly become a precious metal?
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too?
Can you remember the good old days when groups made singles not just album tracks?
I wonder if Billy did kick it in the head when he was 25?
If you get certainty does knowledge come along free?
Don't forget to turn on the light
I looked at you and wondered if you saw things my way
I think I want for you to... marry me
I wouldn't do that if I were you
It's clear that some things never take
If you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky
If you throw a dart in a lovers eye is it a bullseye?
Imagine what the promo video for The Bewlay Brothers would have looked like?
It could have been me, oh yeah, it could have been me
Look at this - no second glances
I'm busting up my brains for the words
If it's written on a sweater then I'd better not, you do it
It doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there
I'll spin you Valentine's evenings
I've never touched you since I started to feel
If you close one eye, the people on that side can't see you
Just what IS a pink monkey bird?
Just look through your window
Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well
Keep your head on and open up your eyes real wide
Keep your eyes on your soul, keep your hand on your heart
What is going on here?
If it's wearing a pink hat, a red nose and it plays a guitar upside down... I'll go and look at it!
Look at this - then look at us
Look at life it's no piece of cake
Look into his eyes and see your reflection
Let me take you back to when it all began...
Love's such an old fashioned word
Leave him a note saying 'Wish you was here'
Myriam! Myriam! What am I going to do?
Money goes to money heaven, bodies go to body hell
Most people hide from their fears. We call them cowards, but they tend to outlive the brave
My God you look extra nice in the cold. Almost Ukranian
Now that David is a doctor - does that mean he's now officially allowed to rub things better?
Just how wise is an Orangutan?
Now that David is a doctor I wonder if his bedside manner has improved?

Oh do cheer up. You're beginning to look like Edith Piaf
Kick Out Your Mother. Cut Up Your Friend
Paddy will you carry me, I think I've lost my way
Play at maximum volume!!!
Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming
One small move can mean a lot

Pour me out another phone
Listen to tracks by Sam Therapy and King Dice
Pretty soon you're gonna get a little older
Pull the curtains on yesterday, and it seems so much later
Bowie's gone on a singing tour of South Korea. Seoul? No, R'n'B
Can I leave now? I've got some cleaning to do. I'll come back in a little while, okay?
Mr. Newton, this kind of money buys more than ten hours even of my time. What exactly do you want?
I am a nobody, nobody is perfect, and therefore I am perfect
Revelation comes in the strangest way
Repetition Repetition Repetition
So you'd rather not take a shower for twenty years right?
Shall I meet you in the pump room Sir?
Will you stay or leave me and when the sun goes
For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing
But who are we, so small in times such as these
So much trouble over such a little thing, but not for long
She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me
Silhouettes and shadows watch the revolution
Stay away from the future, back away from the light
This dot . marks your location
The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left
Those are absurdly tiny gloves
There's old wave and there's new wave. And there's David Bowie
The lips part like silence set for alarm
The whole world is a stage and one man in his time plays many parts
Where there's trouble there's poetry
Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot
Is this trench 17A154?
Is there no reason, have I stayed too long
Make your dress all wet and send it to me
There is no hell. There is no shame
The search for passion, feeling, love: it'll get you every time
This ain't rock 'n' roll. This is genocide!
Have you ever wondered what those little blue square pieces of card placed on the chair on the Ashes To Ashes video are for?
Thanks for telling me. I was just about to drop my pants and make my monkey dance
The wrong words make you listen
Wake up you sleepy head
Meanwhile... I'm at The Eden
Would you buy a house on Love Me Avenue?
Would David still begin if you weren't sitting comfortably?
We're today's scrambled creatures, locked in tomorrow's double feature
What to do? What to say? What to wear on a sunny day?

Why don't we pass it by? Just reply, you've changed your mind
What happened to all the old dudes?
Why not talk of dust and roses?
Where have all Papa's heroes gone?
Where's the pain in the violent night?
Would you buy illusions with a sack full of cheques?
Why it is so exciting? What makes me dramatic?
We all look for acceptance in this life. Some of us change to get it. Others cannot change so easily. We must be accepted as we are, warts and all
Why do the first songs you really like on an album always turn out to be the worst ones?
Who's eating the Salt and Vinegar crisps on The Dreamers?
We all look for acceptance in this life. Some of us change to get it

Where would David be today if the Pye singles all had been top ten hits?
You could not imagine that it could happen this way, could you?
You've gotta have a scheme, you've gotta have a plan
You don't hear a lot about Mrs. Houdini these days do you?
You know you got something, you know you got the style

You can walk around in New York while you sleep in bed
You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
You'll never know the real story
You should call and see who answers
You have a donkey on your door?
You'll never go down to the Gods again
Your karma just ran over my dogma
Not tonight, dear... I have a modem

So many messages, so little time
Don't touch that dial
You're never too old to learn something stupid

For we're living in the safety zone
Unable to locate coffee - operation halted!
You make the funniest faces when you type
I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.
The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.
Sometimes there's no option but to turn and face your fears and see what happens
What are YOU lookin at?
Are you gonna come quietly or must I use earplugs?

You need time to get your bearings
Looking through windows for demons
For God's sake leave me alone
Is his nose broken?
You've been gone for quite some time you know
The men sir. They seem to be cheering. Is that usual?
Ahh you're the sixth bottle
Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot
Get out while you still have a chance
And why didn't you tell me you were leaving?
Don't ask me, the older I get the less I know
Find your own pig!
Don't look at the carpet, I drew something awful on it
I forget if it's always this way
This is definitely my room
I knew you'd come
I feel like a puppet
I've brought a pig home
Some say the view is crazy
Yes. Where IS my pig?
You're going to kill me aren't you?
Remember me? Identification mark... scar... left thigh... Winter Gardens... skating lesson... clumsy cadet. Remember me?
Well what do I think of it? It's wonderful isn't it?
