I've come on a few years from my Hollywood Highs
The best of the last, the cleanest star they ever had

I'm stiff on my legend,
the films that I made
Forget that I'm fifty
cause you just got paid

[CHORUS]
Crack, baby, crack,
show me...

    As an English major @ university, I wrote & delivered orally a paper comparing ‘Cracked Actor’ to Robert Frost’s poem, ‘Provide Provide’ – which is also about an aging star who’s limelight had faded & who has to pay people to hang out with him.
    Google the poem & compare the lyrics – I received an A for the paper (the Prof had never read any of Bowie's lyrics), caught the attention of the English Department Head & was offered a job tutoring English at the school’s Drop-In Center.
    : )

    This is based on Bowie's experiences in LA. According to Bowie, it was difficult to tell the actors from the prostitutes on the streets.
