  • See the great white scar
    Over Battery Park
    Then a flare glides over
    But I won't look at that scar
    Oh my nuclear baby
    Oh my idiot trance
    All my idiot questions
    Let's face the music and dance

    Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
    I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better
    Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
    I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better, I'm better than you

    All the corners of the buildings
    Who but we remember these
    The sidewalks and trees
    I'm thinking now

    I got a better way
    I discovered a star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    A new killer star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    The stars in your eyes
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    I discovered a star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go

    See my life in a comic
    Like the way they did the Bible
    With the bubbles and action
    The little details in color
    First a horseback bomber
    Just a small thin chance
    Like seeing Jesus on Dateline
    Let's face the music and dance

    Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
    I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better
    Don't ever say I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready
    I never said I'm better, I'm better, I'm better, I'm better than you

    All the corners of the buildings
    Who but we remember these
    The sidewalks and trees
    I'm thinking now

    I got a better way
    I discovered a star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    A new killer star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    The stars in your eyes
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    I discovered a star
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go
    I got a better way
    Ooh ooh
    I got a better way
    Ready, set, go Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE
