      About "All The Madmen"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "All The Madmen"

      Day after day
      They send my friends away
      To mansions cold and grey
      To the far side of town
      Where the thin men stalk the streets
      While the sane stay underground

      Day after day
      They tell me I can go
      They tell me I can blow
      To the far side of town
      Where it's pointless to be high
      'Cause it's such a long way down

      So I tell them that
      I can fly, I will scream, I will break my arm
      I will do me harm
      Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall
      I'm not quite right at all...am I?

      Don't set me free, I'm as heavy as can be
      Just my librium and me
      And my E.S.T. makes three

      'Cause I'd rather stay here
      With all the madmen
      Than perish with the sad men roaming free
      And I'd rather play here
      With all the madmen
      For I'm quite content they're all as sane
      As me

      (Where can the horizon lie
      When a nation hides
      Its organic minds
      In a cellar...dark and grim
      They must be very dim)

      Day after day
      They take some brain away
      Then turn my face around
      To the far side of town
      And tell me that it's real
      Then ask me how I feel

      Here I stand, foot in hand, talking to my wall
      I'm not quite right at all

      Don't set me free, I'm as helpless as can be
      My libido's split on me
      Gimme some good 'ole lobotomy

      'Cause I'd rather stay here
      With all the madmen
      Than perish with the sad men
      Roaming free
      And I'd rather play here
      With all the madmen
      For I'm quite content
      They're all as sane as me

      Zane, Zane, Zane
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
      Zane, Zane, Zane (ah ah ah)
      Ouvre le Chien
