(Music Bowie/Gabrels – Lyrics Bowie)

I don't want knowledge,
I want certainty

In the street a man shouts out loud
A wallet drops and money flies into the midday sun
With the sound, with the sound,
with the sound of the ground
Oh I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire

CHORUS
With the sound, with the sound,
with the sound of the ground
Sure I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

Earthlings on fire
I don't want knowledge,
I want certainty

In a house a man drops dead
As he hits the floor he sighs
"What a morning"

CHORUS
Sometimes
Earthlings on fire
Oh I get a little bit afraid

Sometimes

I don't want knowledge,
I want certainty

Oh I get a little bit afraid
Sometimes

I don't want knowledge,
I want certainty
I don't want knowledge
