      About "The Width Of A Circle"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "The Width Of A Circle"

      In the corner of the morning in the past
      I would sit and blame the master first and last
      All the roads were straight and narrow
      And the prayers were small and yellow
      And the rumour spread that I was aging fast
      Then I ran across a monster who was sleeping
      By a tree.
      And I looked and frowned and the monster was me

      Well, I said hello and I said hello
      And I asked "Why not?" and I replied "I don't know"
      So we asked a simple black bird, who was happy as can be
      And he laughed insane and quipped "KAHLIL GIBRAN"
      So I cried for all the others till the day was nearly through
      For I realized that God's a young man too

      So I said "So long" and I waved "Bye-bye"
      And I smashed my soul and traded my mind
      Got laid by a young bordello
      I was vaguely half asleep
      For which my reputation swept back home in drag
      And the moral of this magic spell
      Negotiates my hide
      When God did take my logic for a ride
      (Riding along)

      Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

      He swallowed his pride and puckered his lips
      And showed me the leather belt round his hips
      My knees were shaking my cheeks aflame
      He said "You'll never go down to the Gods again"
      (Turn around,go back!)

      He struck the ground a cavern appeared
      And I smelt the burning pit of fear
      We crashed a thousand yards below
      I said "Do it again, do it again"
      (Turn around,go back!)

      His nebulous body swayed above
      His tongue swollen with devil's love
      The snake and I, a venom high
      I said "Do it again, do it again"
      (Turn around, go back!)

      Breathe, breathe, breathe deeply
      And I was seething, breathing deeply
      Spitting sentry, horned and tailed
      Waiting for you

      Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
      Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
