nothing will prepare you for the first dramatic performance in the man who fell to earth. i don't need any help. i've practised walking for years. # look up here, i'm in heaven... # i've got scars that cannot be seen... # i've got drama that can't be stolen... # everybody knows me now... # now ziggy played... # guitar... hello, this is breakfast,
