I’m Afraid of Americans

“I’m afraid of Americans. I’m afraid of the world. I’m afraid I can’t help it. I’m afraid I can’t. I’m afraid of Americans. Johnny’s in America. Johnny wants a plane. Johnny wants to suck on a Coke. Johnny wants a woman. Johnny wants to think of a joke.
Johnny’s in America”
– David Bowie (I’m Afraid of Americans) | Travel Quote of the Day

This Is Not America

“A little piece of you, the little piece in me will die.
This is not a miracle, for this is not America.

Blossom fails to bloom this season.
Promise not to stare too long.
This is not America, for this is not the miracle.

There was a time, a storm that blew, so pure.
For this could be the biggest sky, and I could have the faintest idea.

For this is not America. Sha-la-la-la-la”

– David Bowie (This is not America) | Travel Quote of the Day

Sitting In A Tin Can, Far Above The World

“For here, am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world. Planet Earth is blue, and there’s nothing I can do… Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles, I’m feeling very still – and I think my spaceship knows which way to go. Tell my wife I love her very much (she knows…)” – David Bowie (Space Oddity)
