David Bowie – Quicksand lyrics

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:]
