"I'm Deranged" as written by and Brian Eno David Bowie....
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 down, down, down
I'm deranged down, down, down
So cruise me babe, cruise me baby, oh

And the rain sets in
It's the angel-man
I'm deranged
Cruise me, cruise me, cruise me, babe

The clutch of life
And the fist of love
Over your head
Big deal Salaam
Be real deranged Salaam
Before we reel
I'm deranged

And the rain sets in
It's the angel-man
I'm deranged

And the rain sets in
It's the angel-man
I'm deranged

Cruise me, cruise me, cruise me, babe

I'm deranged
And the rain sets in

    General CommentOh this is such a great moody song. I have no idea how it fits in with the story of "Outside" but it's probabily my favorite off a very hit and miss album.

    My OpinionIt is a very moody song. I've liked it for years. It seems to me urgent and sad, at times desperate ... could be all my feelings that I am projecting on it. One of Bowie's best songs in my opinion.

    General CommentI listened to a radio interview around the time of the release of OUTSIDE where he commented on this song being more or less about TALKING HEADS frontman David Byrne. Knowing that really opened the song out for me.
