    Hey kurticus, good point about the event thing.. For all we know, J could be singing about some guy he saw crawling under a table chasing some critter at a cafe or some other nonsense.. [img]images/smiles/converted/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Here’s how I always heard it (haven’t listened to it just now though):

    Bowie: I’m living in a silent film

    J: I’m living in a college room

    I was living in a college room when I first heard J’s version, so I totally could relate to that. Guess it could be "callous realm" instead though.

    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

    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

    Don’t believe in yourself
    Don’t deceive with belief
    Knowledge comes with death’s release

    About the blond/blob issue, I can’t really picture J singing specifically about blonds, but God knows. Blob though? Hmmm, see my signature …

    I’m sure it blob. It could be an inside joke. About a fat chick that likes him or something.

    You guys are too funny….I think you’re reading way too much into the "blob" thing…I think it’s just a reference to the Blob, you know, from the Steve McQueen movie of the same name.

    & for what it’s worth, I always thought it was "carless realm", especially because he later asks, "should I leave the engine on?"

    just my 2c….that’s how I’ve always sung it.

    freshly unemployed & posting way too much,
