It Gets Better

When comes the shaking man, a nation in his eyes
Striped with blood and emblazed tattoo,
Streaking cathedral spire. They say.

They say: he has no brain
They say: he has no mood
They say: he was born again
They say: look at him climb
They say: jump!

They say: he has two gods
They say: he has no fear
They say: he has no eyes
They say: he has no mouth…

They say: hey that’s really something!
(They feel he should get some time)
I say: he should watch his ass
My friend: don’t listen to the crowd say “jump!”

—David Bowie, “Jump They Say”
