Bowie, David - Dead Against It Lyrics




And when she drowns
Within and in the fizzy gin, begins to sigh
"Good god" or "My" I cry and die and lie beside

She is the apple in my eye
She talked to God
I couldn't cope
Or'd hope eloped
A dope, she roped
This salty lie

And when she's dreaming, I believe
And when she's reading, I retreat
Can't believe her
Telling me she's dead again
Telling me she's dead against it

And deep my wound
Within for every second chance it was
thy-tore
From deep within, despite the rain, my words are worn

She loves to talk into the phone
No matter who
No matter when
No matter where
No better than the faulty line

And when she's dreaming, I believe
And when she's reading, I retreat
Can't believe her
Telling me she's dead again
Telling me she's dead against it

Bowie, David Dead Against It Comments
  1. David Lockwood

    There was talk of rerecording this track on Outside or Earthling - imagine how great that would've been

    David Lockwood

    @Picnicl you're right; both albums I suppose had a very industrial flavour on them, which would've suited this song so well. On Outside it would've been much darker compared to Earthling- perhaps more of an angry context? I believe it would've worked well either way. With the Bowie estate currently releasing new performances of "older" songs, I am forever in hope that we will hear a newer cut of this track

    Picnicl

    Have a look at my channel for a reimagined Outside album, David. I changed my mind - it's perfect for 1. Outside. It's too delicately romantically subtle for Earthling.

  2. Picnicl

    What a beautiful tease it plays making us wonder and wait for the electric piano harpsichord type riff.

  3. HippieHesten

    It's musical soundplay reminds me of 'What in the world'.

  4. New Panzer

    Love this track!! One of the best of this underrated album. It makes me change my mood absolutely!!

  5. Davie Jones

    Absolutely brilliant. Most of the stuff he did from ‘87-‘94 is criminally underrated.

  6. peejstar

    Great track from a totally underrated album, Bowie experimenting mostly alone

    Halimous Bathyal

    I forget. Who rates albums, again?
    I musta missed that one.
