"Dead Against It" as written by and David Bowie....
And when she drowns
Within and in the fizzy gin, begins to sigh
"Good God, oh my", I cry
And die, and lie beside

She is the apple in my eye
She talked to God
I couldn't cope or'd hope eloped
A dope she roped this salty lie

And when she's dreaming, I believe
And when she's reading, I retreat
Can't believe her telling me she's dead again
Telling me she's dead against it

And deep my wound
Within for every second chance it was thy tore
From deep within despite the rain
My words are worn

She loves to talk into the phone
No matter who, no matter when
No matter where
No better than the faulty line

And when she's dreaming, I believe
And when she's reading, I retreat
Can't believe her telling me she's dead again
Telling me she's dead against it

    General CommentThis is one of the non-instrumental songs on the Buddha of Suburbia. It has a great rhythm. It's obviously a hate song. Not a love song, but a hate song. He's telling the listener that she's 'dead against it.' Maybe she doesn't want to get back together with him? Who knows?

    General Comment"The cut-up style that is obviously used on such tracks as Bleed Like A Craze, Dad (yes, it is a play on Krays) and Dead Against It springs from the Brion Gysin/William Burroughs school of Fucking with the Fabric of Time."
    -Bowie
