  • Cash girls suffer me, I've got no enemies
    I'm walking down
    It's nothing to meet
    It's nothing to see
    If I'll never see the English evergreens I'm running to
    It's nothing to meet
    It's nothing to see

    I'm dying too
    Push their backs against the grain
    And fool them all again and again
    I'm trying to
    We bitches tear our magazines
    Those oligarchs with foaming mouths come now and then
    Can't believe I just run second, now I'm forgetting you
    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too

    Dollar days 'til final checks, honest scratching tails, the necks, I'm falling down
    It's nothing to meet
    It's nothing to see
    If I'll never see the English evergreens I'm running to
    It's nothing to meet
    It's nothing to see

    I'm dying too
    Push their backs against the grain
    And fool them all again and again
    I'm trying to
    It's all gone wrong for on and on
    The bitter nerve is never enough, I'm falling down
    Don't believe in just one second round for getting you
    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too

    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too
    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too
    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too
    I'm trying to
    I'm dying too Writer/s: David Bowie
