LAZARUS
David Bowie Lyrics


Look up here, I'm in heaven
I've got scars that can't be seen
I've got drama, can't be stolen
Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I'm in danger
I've got nothing left to lose
I'm so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain't that just like me?

By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
There I'd used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now, ain't that just like me?
Oh, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh, I'll be free

Ain't that just like me?

This song hits different when you understand the lyrics...

In case you didn't know, Bowie died in New York.

He sings about using all his money to battle this illness, and it dragged him away from his writting and music...

You watch bowie on his death bed. The buttons over the eyes symbolise someone about to die or dead. The tradition was thought to help guide people in the afterlife.

Through the scene Death is trying to snatch him. You are witnessing both sides of the struggle. Where he dies as a human, and dies as an artist.

His artist side is illustrated really well as he over acts happy and scared feelings for his writing.

And his human side is in the bed.

Finally you witness Bowie die in bed, and his creative side fight to stay alive before slowly succumbing to the darkness inside the closet.

The words "either way, I'll be free" as he battles with dying. He is either free being alive as the artist, or he's free from pain being dead.

Real powerful stuff.
He died 3 days after this video was published. People don't even have enough energy to get out of bed, and Every last ounce of strength this man had, he used to turn his death in to art.

@Truth Matters Do you believe this as true as well?

Leviticus 25:44-46
As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male
and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. You may
also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans
that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be
your property. You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit
as a possession forever. You may make slaves of them, but over your
brothers the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another
ruthlessly.

Exodus 21:1-36
“Now these are the rules that you shall set before them. When you buy
a Hebrew slave, he shall serve six years, and in the seventh he shall
go out free, for nothing. If he comes in single, he shall go out
single; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him.
If his master gives him a wife and she bears him sons or daughters,
the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out
alone. But if the slave plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and
my children; I will not go out free,

1Peter 2:18
Servants, be subject to your masters with all respect, not only to the
good and gentle but also to the unjust.

Titus 2:9-10
Slaves are to be submissive to their own masters in everything; they are
to be well-pleasing, not argumentative, not pilfering, but showing all
good faith, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our
Savior.

Ephesians 6:5
Slaves, obey your earthly masters with fear and trembling, with a sincere
heart, as you would Christ

Exodus 21:20-21
“When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave
dies under his hand, he shall be avenged. But if the slave survives a day
or two, he is not to be avenged, for the slave is his money.

Exodus 21:26-27
“When a man strikes the eye of his slave, male or female, and destroys it
he shall let the slave go free because of his eye. If he knocks out the
tooth of his slave, male or female, he shall let the slave go free
because of his tooth.

Exodus 21:32
If the ox gores a slave, male or female, the owner shall give to their
master thirty shekels of silver, and the ox shall be stoned.

Look up here, I'm in heaven
I've got scars that can't be seen
I've got drama, can't be stolen
Everybody knows me now
Look up here, man, I'm in danger
I've got nothing left to lose
I'm so high it makes my brain whirl
Dropped my cell phone down below
Ain't that just like me?
By the time I got to New York
I was living like a king
There I'd used up all my money
I was looking for your ass
This way or no way
You know, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Now, ain't that just like me?
Oh, I'll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh, I'll be free
Ain't that just like me?

It must be so painful knowing you’re dying and writing a song about it and sing it. He truly went out as a star ❤️

A.p Viivi

That he did

Vladimir Popa

I beg to differ.

Coda Alive

Yes he went like a star, beside becoming one shining its light on us.

Anubis

Doubt it he wasn't afraid of death. Death is an illusion

Bardi Uthervitki

He was a fellow occultist. He wasn't pained by this song. The cancer may have hurt a but but he knew he was going to the next step.

@Truth Matters no one in their right mind believes in that bible shite nowadays! That rubbish was written to control the masses and extort money out of the same.
