It's definitely "later Bowie" but it strikes me as succinctly beautiful.
Bowie as prophet?
Aren't we all? Not to get into Moses or Jesus or Muhammed or anyone.
Listen to it.
He also did this, and mentioned Jesus. And BTW, Bowie never really struck me as the Jesus-type. Not that he his or was, but what better way to leave Western Civilization than more than he came through with? Just sayin. If anything, we're all prophets. Live your own life, do what you need to do, and I'll leave it at that. Never be violent. Be gay, be flamboyant, be normal, but violence? Leave that up to the kings that know no better.
He's all about vanity and being in his own shit, so when he doesn't appear, watch out. It was released close to his death, btw, Eye can vouch for that.
Brexit and Trump are better, closer examples to any prophecy than what happened in New Zealand. But Eye see no difference in the three. I'd expect no different from Bowie, either. A prophet wouldn't know what's going to happen. A seer sees things. A wizard? That's an old word but Eye don't think it's any different. When Ringo and Paul die, Eye bet we get more but it's already generally there via Lennon.
Eye could go into it more via literature, but it's been there and it will always be there. If only by default. We all know shit, we're all prophets. But if you get to say it and people know who you are, is there anything wrong with that? All of Blackstar and particularly NO PLAN, which was post-released, is awesome.
But if I'm a prophet, or if anyone reading this is a prophet, listen to the words in these songs. BTW, we're no different than anyone else.
Just strikes me as perfect that the world is in complete disorder as people blow off concurrent characters. We warn each other based on current beef. Or repeated beefs.
In before anyone tells me to shut up?
But feel free to tell you that your purpose around here isn't to tell people that you're in before you tell them to fuck off.
Feel free to live to a higher purpose. Feel free to fuck up. Feel free to redeem yourself.
Feel free to understand that New Zealand, despite what it it, occurred for you to have an opinion about it. Jesus and Mohammed? Whatever. People going about their lives and getting gunned down?
Well, here. I'll play NO PLAN again right after this thread. You can click out if you hate the idea, but I'd suggest listening to it.
And sure, sometimes things happen fast so if you just listened to it then just listen to it later.
