The Next Day
by David Bowie

Look into my eyes he tells her
I’m gonna say goodbye he says yea
Do not cry she begs of him goodbye yea
All that day she thinks of his love yea

They whip him through the streets and alleys there
The gormless and the baying crowd right there
They can’t get enough of that doomsday song
They can’t get enough of it all

Listen

Listen to the whores he tells her
He fashions paper sculptures of them
Then drags them to the river's bank in the cart
Their soggy paper bodies wash ashore in the dark
And the priest stiff in hate now demanding fun begin
Of his women dressed as men for the pleasure of that priest

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Ignoring the pain of their particular diseases
They chase him through the alleys chase him down the steps
They haul him through the mud and they chant for his death
And drag him to the feet of the purple-headed priest

First they give you everything that you want
Then they take back everything that you have
They live upon their feet and they die upon their knees
They can work with satan while they dress like the saints
They know god exists for the devil told them so
They scream my name aloud down into the well below

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

Here I am
Not quite dying
My body left to rot in a hollow tree
Its branches throwing shadows
On the gallows for me
And the next day
And the next
And another day

I'm a believer, and I don't feel this video is offensive at all. At least, it isn't to me. The line ''they work with Satan while they dress like saints'' is the truest thing I've ever heard regarding The Catholic Church. It's not coincidential that the New Testament (specifically the text of Revelations) mentions this Church and their horrible acts towards humanity. Bravo, David. Kudos to you!

@flyingfishsurf yet, thanks to the lack of religion, degerate brainlets run rampant for not being intelligent enough to have a set of morals.
Like it or not, religion was a necesary evil.

True!.

The HardTruth

As an EX Christian I think you all need to reread the Old Testament and very key parts of the New testament and get it sorted properly Which one is the true God of caring and love and which one is the real murdering egotistical tyrant and hater of Humanity. IF you are pure and honest with your hearts untainted by prejudice and your brains functioning as they were designed too, you'll come to realize and admit who is really who. You'll see who is the real deceiver and slave master of man.
