Up the Hill Backwards

Album: Scary Monsters (1980)
Charted: 32
  • The vacuum created by the arrival of freedom
    And the possibilities it seems to offer
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it

    A series of shocks - sneakers fall apart
    Earth keeps on rolling - witnesses falling
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it

    Yeah, yeah, yeah - up the hill backwards
    It'll be alright, ooh

    While we sleep they go to work
    We're legally crippled it's the death of love
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it
    It's got nothing to do with you, if one can grasp it

    More idols then realities, ooh
    I'm OK, you're so-so, ooh

    Yeah, yeah, yeah - up the hill backwards
    It'll be alright ooh Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE
