Lyrics

He was sort of, Ziggy was, I mean
He was kind of a a sky-fi rocker, hopped out
Of a Japanese theater, the coat room
That type, simply outrageous, simply

Nobody had seen anything like a
Sci-fi rocker hop out of a Japanese theater
The coat room, that type, simply outrageous

A sci-fi rocker hop out of a Japanese theater
The coat room, that type, simply outrageous.
Simply, nobody had seen anything like a
A sci-fi rocker hop out of a Japanese theater

The coat room, that type, simply outrageous
Simply, nobody had seen anything like it

I think I moved after Ziggy fast enough
So as not to be caught right out
Because most rock characters don't want
To be created, they only have a short life span

They aren't like shots, they aren't cartoons
And the Ziggy thing was worth about one or
Two hours before I couldn't really write anymore, so
I'm a moderate writer you see, not a great thing

But I can be terrible, so I was never unaware
Of my strength as an interpreter but writing
A song can be...
But, but, but writing a song can be...

It, it never rang true. I had no problem writing
Something for, well, uh, working for Lou Reed or
Writing for the public or getting to their mood
Or what they want to do, but I find it extremely

Hard to write for Pete, so I found it quite easy
To write for the artists that I had created, I did
Find it much easier having created this thing
To then write for him. Haha

It, it, I was able to kind of distance myself from
The whole... yeah, well it can become very
Complicated (the reasons are psychological)
Hahaha
