The world received the shocking news today that iconic singer, musician and producer, David Bowie has died of cancer. Our grief cries around the globe. Bowie predicted his larger than life influence on music, art and culture, would be instantly summarized, defined - appreciated by the media. But in its midst, David Bowie has outsmarted us again. His final song release, which was on his birthday, just a few days before his death, is a prophetic and haunting reprise. At 69 years old, he lived his life exactly as he wanted to, with simultaneous presence and foresight. In his parting message to fans, Lazarus depicts the struggle with life and death, mocking the outflow of superficial media that will occur, and celebrating the release of spirit that his passing will embrace. It reflects who he is and always has been. The song has somber jazz undertones with ironic lyrics that mock the face of dying and superficial communication. The video tells the story. It mirrors his style of emotional freedom on every level. David Bowie has left us an elegant, inspiring echo.

Read, listen, watch :

Look up here, I'm in heaven I've got scars that can't be seen

I've got drama, can't be stolen

Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I'm in danger

I've got nothing left to lose

I'm so high it makes my brain whirl

Dropped my cell phone down below

Ain't that just like me?

By the time I got to New York

I was living like a king

Then I used up all my money

I was looking for your ass

This way or no way  

You know, I'll be free


Just like that bluebird

Now ain't that just like me?

Oh I'll be free

Just like that bluebird

Oh I'll be free

Ain't that just like me?
