      About "Black Tie White Noise"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Black Tie White Noise"

      Getting my facts from a Benneton ad
      I'm lookin' through African eyes
      Lit by the glare of an L.A. fire
      I've got a face, not just my race, Bang Bang I've got you babe

      Sun comes up and the man goes down
      And the woman comes again
      Just an hour or so to be safe from fear
      Then we jump through hoops, we're divisable now, just disappear

      We reach out over race and hold each other's hands
      Then die in the flames singing "we shall overcome"
      Whoa! What's going on?
      There'll be some blood no doubt about it
      But we'll come through don't doubt it
      I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
      You won't kill me
      You won't kill me
      But I look into your eyes
      And I wonder sometimes

      Oh Lord, just let him see me
      Lord, Lord just let him hear me
      Let him call me brother
      Let him put his arms around me
      Let him put his hands together.

      Reach over race and hold each other's hands
      Walk through the night thinking we are the world
      Woa! What's going on?
      There'll be some blood no doubt about it
      But we'll come through don't doubt it

      I look into your eyes and I know you won't kill me
      You won't kill me
      You won't kill me
      But I wonder why
      Yes, and I wonder why sometimes

      They'll show us how to break the rules
      But never how to make the rules
      Reduce us down to witless punks
      Facist cries both black and white, who's got the blood, who's got the gun.

      Putting on the black tie, cranking out the white noise
