David Bowie - Thru These Architect's Eyes Lyrics




Stomping along
on this big Phillip Johnson
Is delay just wasting my time
Looking across at Richard Rogers
Scheming dreams to blow both their minds
It's difficult you see
To give up baby
To leave a job
When you know
You know the money's from day to day

[CHORUS]
All the majesty of a city landscape
All the soaring days in our lives
All the concrete dreams
in my mind's eye
All the joy I see
Thru these architect's eyes

Cold winter bleeds
on the girders of Babel
This stone boy watching the crawling land
Rings of flesh and the towers of iron
The steaming caves and the rocks and the sand
Stomping along on this big Phillip Johnson
Is delay just wasting my time
It's difficult you see
To give up baby
These summer scumholes
This goddamned starving life

[CHORUS]

It's difficult you see
It's difficult you see

  1. Picnicl

    I could never have thought that I'd hear 'Philip Johnson' and 'Richard Rogers' in such a beautiful vocal, beautiful piano line, beautiful beat, beautifully funky, crunchy, guitar.

  2. ThinWhiteAxe

    I'm a bit of an architecture junkie myself and I think I'm in love. 😻

    We are so lucky to have been alive to hear Bowie's music.

    No, the cover art is a painting, a self-portrait by David Bowie himself. Beside making music, het also painted a lot.

  13. Jose Gomez

    Tremendous song!

  14. Jose Gomez

    Awesome song!

  15. kulerage

  16. comtdk

    Wish people payed more attention to his later stuff. Blah blah blah major tom.

    Gurgis Jones

    No, blah blah blah Modern Love and that ilk.

    garethb1961

    Me too. My fave Bowie is Outside, Heathen and Earthling.

    The Tom

    garethb1961 that’s a horrible opinion
