      About "Quicksand"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Quicksand"

      I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
      Immersed in Crowley's uniform
      Of imagery
      I'm living in a silent film
      Portraying
      Himmler's sacred realm
      Of dream reality
      I'm frightened by the total goal
      Drawing to the ragged hole
      And I ain't got the power anymore
      No I ain't got the power anymore

      I'm the twisted name
      On Garbo's eyes
      Living proof of
      Churchill's lies
      I'm destiny
      I'm torn between the light and dark
      Where others see their targets
      Divine symmetry
      Should I kiss the viper's fang
      Or herald loud
      The death of Man
      I'm sinking in the quicksand
      Of my thought
      And I ain't got the power anymore

      [CHORUS]
      Don't believe in yourself
      Don't deceive with belief
      Knowledge comes
      With death's release

      I'm not a prophet
      Or a stone age man
      Just a mortal
      With the potential of a superman
      I'm living on
      I'm tethered to the logic
      Of Homo Sapien
      Can't take my eyes
      From the great salvation
      Of bullshit faith
      If I don't explain what you ought to know
      You can tell me all about it
      On, the next Bardo
      I'm sinking in the quicksand
      Of my thought
      And I ain't got the power anymore

      [CHORUS]
