Hey you know mudley
That was also one of the first songs off Ziggy Stardust, that I also analysed, both musically and lyrically.
I guess i was about 10/11 also, i understood pretty almost of it, it still took me another 10 years to understand "Rock and Roll Suicide", that line Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth etc...
Plus the fact i never felt at ease with the line "A cop knelt, kissed the feet of priest and a queer threw up at the sight of that", it did'nt sound right, it was only years later that i understood his use of the derogatory term queer
School being a breeding ground of prejudice's, something that has always made me angry.
