      About "I'd Rather Be High"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "I'd Rather Be High"

      N obokov is sun-licked now
      Upon the beach at Gruenwald
      Brilliant and naked just
      The way that authors looks

      Clare and Lady Manners drink
      Until the other cows go home
      Gossip till their lips are bleeding
      Politics and all

      I'd rather be high, I'd rather be high
      I'd rather be flying, I'd rather be flying
      I'd rather be dead or out of my head
      Than training these guns on those men in the sand

      I'd rather be high
      The Thames was black, the tower dark
      I flew to Cairo, find my regiment
      City's full of generals
      And generals full of shit

      I stumble to the graveyard and I
      Lay down by my parents, whisper
      Just remember duckies
      Everybody gets got

      I'd rather be high, I'd rather be high
      I'd rather be flying, I'd rather be flying
      I'd rather be dead or out of my head
      Than training these guns of those men in the sand
      I'd rather be high

      I'm seventeen and my looks can prove it
      I'm so afraid that I will lose it
      I'd rather smoke and phone my ex
      Be pleading for some teenage sex, yeah

      I'd rather be high, I'd rather be high
      I'd rather be flying, I'd rather be flying
      I'd rather be dead or out of my head
      Than training these guns on the men in the sand

      I'd rather be high, I'd rather be high
      I'd rather be flying, I'd rather be flying
      I'd rather be flying, I'd rather be high
      I'd rather be flying
