"Fly" as written by Hayden John Bell, Oliver Jones and Drew Timothy Mcalister....
David Bowie - Fly

The televisions on and I'm walking throught the yard
How's this life that sweet when I'm crying in the car
Dying for the weekend

The kids are alright but they don't smell much
The sellup in the garage in the decks and the stuff
Dying for the weekend

The boys on a charge but his mother doesn't know
I never got around yet I tell it my soul
But we only make it crazy

We'll I'll be fine, I'm only screaming in my head
But I can fly, I close my eyes and I can fly

The televisions on and I'm walking throught the yard
How's this life that sweet when I'm crying in my car
Dying for the weekend

The kids are gonna get it in an all right way
Looking pretty though but I still want to say
(Do you really have to go?)

Down in the backstreet the skinny get cries
Bad judge saturday another life line
Dying for the weekend

We'll I'll be fine, I'm only screaming in my head
But I can fly, I close my eyes and I can fly
When I can fly and fall to all the end and I can fly

I'll be fine, I'm only screaming in my head
I can fly, I close my eyes and I can fly

    General CommentSounds like the protagonist hates his home life, even if some people feel the typical house and kids thing is a "life that sweet", he finds it unbearable and is crying in his car. Maybe he is dying for the weekend because the weekend is when he gets to have fun? Maybe he feels his life is so miserable it's killing him, so he is dying for the weekend? Maybe he is literally dying for the weekend.

    "Down in the backstreet the skinny get cries
    Bad judge saturday another life line"
    This line sounds like maybe a drug deal in the back street was a bad judgement call, maybe he overdosed and needs "another life line", on a Saturday, so he is dying for the weekend.
    The line "I can fly" could reference the feeling of flying some users get when high.

    It is David Bowie, and as a superfan I've come to believe that if a Bowie song even remotely seems to reference drugs, then it is probably about drugs.

    Miss you Bowie, you are alien, you are genius, you are never forgotten among we mortals.
