  • I took the call, IAnnotate packed the bag
    I ride the train to the pick-up point
    I'll be telling myself
    There was no other way
    That you brought it on yourself
    Now my heart's aflame
    At the end of your life
    It's the end of your life

    I've got a pool of blood
    On this bathroom floor
    The mirror's broke
    There's a crack in the door
    There's a broken window
    That I'll be crawling through
    Then I'll change my life
    And we won't have you
    We won't have you
    No, we won't have you

    Good or evil
    Saint or whore
    The mythical public
    I don't recall
    You were on the ledger
    Your name was double crossed
    You were a prime assignment
    So help me Christ

    I've got major questions
    About the Lord above
    About Satan below
    About the way we love
    About the rule at the top
    And the people coming up
    And I still don't know
    What we were looking for
    But it wasn't you
    No, it wasn't you
    No, It wasn't you

    It wasn't you
    No, it wasn't you Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE
