about

Inspired by David Bowie's "Ashes To Ashes", a song that soundtracked a great time in my life, and that I have spent years trying to decode (in addition to his other works). But it has always spoken to me...so continuing my tradition of adding to the conversation started in songs I love, here's "All Time Low". This started as an idea back in 2008, then Alex Gloworld helped me start on it in 2013. It became a victim of the SUM workload bottleneck, but then Bowie passed and we decided to finish this once and for all... enjoy. #keepitmilky

lyrics

LYRICS
Ashes into dust, you doin way too much...
Who wants that funk
Sometimes major tom just wants the funk....
Ashes to ashes dust to dust....I won't judge

Do you remember the dude that's been
in them other songs
I heard a rumour from Ground Control
And i hope its wrong
But the sky is caving in
If you believe the news
They may not know for sure, but damn sure actin like they know it's true
They got a message from the Action Man
it said "i hope you're happy man and it aint no accident that im out here lookin for happiness too"
I've loved all i needed love
So why are we squeezing blood
More details to come

The shrieking oblivion
Is killing the screams beyond
The pictures agreed upon
By the Japanese debutantes
I regret to inform them all
That the money has all dissolved too
And i aint got no hair (that aint fair)

I'm hoping to kick the junk ... supposedly i know im sposed to be growin up but the planet we on that was glowing is blowin up, aint no other way i can see but goin up in...

ashes to ashes baby, everybody keep it funky
And we all know Major Tom is a junkie
Strung out on heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low


(drops, booms, aderols, codeine cups, add a halls, white girl i had it all, drop now, i had to fall)
Sometime major tom just want the funk


Once again I told myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the monkey be callin me
And who am to fight
Cant be dipped no place to go -- what a ghostly sight
Oh no, not again he still comes even when he knows im right
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
Who dont give a fuck for the how or the when
Long as i got what count in the end
He's happy ....guess i'm happy then too....

One flash of the light.... but no gun was bust... ashes into dust...

I never done good things
I never done bad things
I never just took things, i just never had things
A pitiful sad thing -- im never reacting
Im never a mad thing -- i never did that thing
I never flew that way and never clipped that wing
I never knew that way So who is this happening to?
you?
The law of attracting, the awful reactions
And horrible faces haunted and laughing
Are daunted and massive, call in my axes
i wanna break the ice and come down right now


ashes to ashes baby, everybody keep it funky
And we all know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out on heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low


(drops, booms, aderols, codeine cups add a halls, white girl i had it all, drop now, i had to fall)

Mama said you gotta grow up son
Why you on the streets with major tom
Dont you know you'll never get things done
Runnin thru the streets with major tom
