      About "Panic In Detroit"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Panic In Detroit"

      He looked a lot like Che Guevara, drove a diesel van
      Kept his gun in quiet seclusion, such a humble man
      The only survivor of the National People's Gang
      Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph
      He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone
      Panic in Detroit

      He laughed at accidental sirens that broke the evening gloom
      The police had warned of repercussions
      They followed none too soon
      A trickle of strangers were all that were left alive
      Panic in Detroit, I asked for an autograph
      He wanted to stay home, I wish someone would phone
      Panic in Detroit

      Putting on some clothes I made my way to school
      And I found my teacher crouching in his overalls
      I screamed and ran to smash my favorite slot machine
      And jumped the silent cars that slept at traffic lights

      Having scored a trillion dollars, made a run back home
      Found him slumped across the table. A gun and me alone
      I ran to the window. Looked for a plane or two
      Panic in Detroit. He'd left me an autograph
      "Let me collect dust." I wish someone would phone
      Panic in Detroit
