Tidens hastighed

Nej, Ziggy,
tiden tager ikke en cigaret,
det er der ikke tid til,
og hvor skulle den også gøre det henne?
og for øvrigt er ikke bare du,
men også Bowie død

Det er Lou, der også er død, der har ret:

This is the time
This is the time
This is the time
Because there is no time
There is no time
There is no time
There is no time
There is no time
 
- men slutningen på "Rock'n Roll Suicide"
gælder selvfølgelig, mere end nogensinde:

You're not alone!
Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on with me and you're not alone (wonderful)
Let's turn on and be not alone (wonderful)
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful (wonderful)
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful (wonderful)
Oh gimme your hands
 
(og Marc Almonds koncerterindring (i Uncut):
"There are so many Bowie songs of the late ’60s and early ’70s that represent so much to me, but I have to single out “Rock’N’Roll Suicide”. As a skinny, spotty 14-year-old, bloody from being bottled by thugs on the way to Liverpool Empire in 1972, I climbed over the orchestra pit at the front of the stage. And as Bowie sang “Give me your hand!”, he reached down and took my hand. I was a mess of blood, glitter and cheap, badly applied make-up, but in a state of near religious ecstasy. ")

Iggy lever, 
i Florida,
og han vil hele tiden bare ikke vente længere:
 
Time won't let me
Time won't let me
Time won't let me wait too long
