I'm Deranged Lyrics

Funny how secrets travel
I'd start to believe if I were to bleed
Thin skies, the man chains his hands held high
Cruise me blond
Cruise me babe
A blond belief beyond beyond beyond
No return No return

I'm deranged
Deranged my love
I'm...

    This song is about a real personal encounter with Sufi Gnosticism, and reveals how much Bowie understood. The mind-blowing revelations disturbed his thinking to the extent of making him feel insane. Further contributing to the dissonance is that he could not believe, though comprehending. Funny how secrets travel. For all other lataifs, an archangel. For the highest station of Annihilation, only the Angel-Man, for whom every drop of rain falls in exaltation, from whose oceans are the source and light of creation, Alayhi Salaam.

    I think it’s about the experience o death; a journey with no return and into a county so unknown to us that only angels can guide us through and cruise us along those shores.

    A great song. It is about a deranged man letting the world know of his affriction, crying out for help.
