David Bowie - 1987 EMI Electronic Press Kit:
Time Will Crawl is laden with image one over another of a somewhat apolacyptic nature.
It deals with the idea of somebody in ones own community could turn out to be the man who's responsible for blowing up the world. And it was just this kid on the block
With this in mind, read this interpretation, especially the passage by phoenix.
Waiting so long, ahhhh: Get Bowie Downunder
