David Bowie - 1987 - GLASS SPIDER TOUR REHEARSALS - New York City


GLASS SPIDER

Up until one century ago there lived
In the Zi Duang province of eastern country
A glass-like spider
Having devoured its prey
It would drape the skeletons over its web
In weeks creating a macabre
Shrine of remains
Its web was also unique in that it had many layers
Like floors in a building
At the top of this palace-like place
Assembled with almost apparent care
Were tiny, shining objects
Glass, beads, dew-drops
One could almost call it an altar
When the breeze blew
Thru this construction
It produced sounds of wailing, crying
Tiny wails, tiny cries
The baby spiders would get scared
And search frantically for their mother
But the Glass Spider would have long gone
Having known that the babies
Would survive somehow on their own
Oh-The Glass Spider had blue eyes almost like-a human's
They shed tears at the wintered turn of the centuries
Don't you hear this wasted cry
Life is over you
(Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone)
But you've seen who's in heaven
Is there anyone in hell
(Mummy come back 'cause it's dark now)
Take care, take care
(Mummy come back 'cause the water's all gone)
Somewhere she glows divine
Somewhere she wakes alone
But you, you've promise
In your lovin' eye
God it's dark now
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Gone, Gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Stay low on the ground
Fire can drive you savage and afraid
Spitting the dawn, come come come along
Before the animals awake
Gone, Gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Run, run, we've been moving all night, rivers to the left
If your mother don't love you then the riverbed might
Gone, gone, the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Jah Jah Jah Jah Jah
Gone gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Gone gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Gone gone the water's all gone
Mummy come back
'Cause the water's all gone
Mommy come back because it's dark now
(Oh-hoho-oh)
(Oh-hoho-oh)
Mommy come back 'cause the water's all gone
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
Mommy come back because it's dark now
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
Mommy come back 'cause the water's all gone
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
Mommy come back because it's dark now
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
(Ja ja ja ja ja)
(Oh-hoho-oh)
(Oh-hoho-oh)
