Осталось пять лет, прежде чем планете настанет конец. Было объявлено, что человечество умрет из-за нехватки природных ресурсов. Зигги находится в положении, когда все дети имеют доступ к вещам, которые они только могли пожелать. Взрослые потеряли всякую связь с реальностью, а дети предоставлены сами себе, подворовывая все что плохо лежит. Зигги играл в рок-н-рольной группе, но теперь никому не нужен рок-н-ролл. На планете нет электричества, чтобы исполнять эту музыку.

David Bowie — Five Years Live on Old Grey Whistle Test 1972

Pushing thru the market square
So many mothers crying
News had just come over,
We had five years left to sigh in

News guy wept when he told us
Earth was really dying
Cried so much that his face was wet
Then I knew he was not lying

I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
I saw boys, toys, electric irons and T.V.’s
My brain hurt like a warehouse
It had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things
To get everything in there
And so many people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I’d need so many people

A girl my age went off her head
Hit some tiny children
If the black hadn’t a-pulled her off, I think she would have killed them

A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheel of a Cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
And a queer threw up at the sight of that
I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour
Drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine
Don’t think you knew you were in this song

And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you’re beautiful, I want you to walk

We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
We’ve got five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
We’ve got five years, that’s all we’ve got
