Whilst his mother's womb contained the growing Baal
Even then the sky was waiting quiet and pale
Naked, young, immensely marvelous
Like Baal loved it, when he came to us

    Surely Baal can't be pronounced 'bale'

    This is a philosphy for life: slackness softness are the things to shun, and he will have enough sky when he is dead...beautiful rotting corpse and all

    He's mispronouncing? The song's written by Bert Brecht, so ye shall pronounce it the German way (like Bowie does). It's [ba:l] ... like arm or after.

    He mispronounces Baal the whole time, which keeps it from rhyming properly. Still one of my favorite Bowie songs ever.
