"Slow Burn" is a song written by David Bowie for the album Heathen. The recording features The Who guitarist Pete Townshend. It was released as a single in June 2002 and earned Bowie a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Male Vocal Performance.
Here shall we live in this terrible town
Where the price for our eyes shall squeeze them tight like a fist
And the walls shall have eyes and the doors shall have ears
But we'll dance in the dark and they'll play with our lives
