In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah ah, ah ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all

    BLACKSTAR is a ''DogOn'' great song with a ''brilliant diamond'' shine behind it. This was one of the last songs by the legendary DAVID BOWIE, before his death and his soul rising. Reminding some of us to where we've been and to where some of us might be going. After that certain individual who by the sacred rituals made the ultimate last sacrifice for all to see, according to the song and video that is.

    Blackstar, David's most recent song, is about the villa of ormen where a man is being executed. In the music video, he is being put on a cross, and has a mask over his head. Everyone watches it happen, ("all the women kneel and smile"). He was about to be killed when someone stood up and put himself to be executed instead, and cried "I'm a Blackstar."
    The Blackstar says that he wants the person who was going to be executed to go home- but with him. This implies that somehow, the Blackstar will survive and escape. All the Blackstar says is that he's a Blackstar, and shows that no other explanation is needed besides that. ("I'm a blackstar, I'm not a gangster," etc.)
