David Bowie’s 1967 track ‘We Are Hungry Men’ was a statement against ‘overpopulation’ eugenicists whose ideas were circulating at the time. At one point in the song a Nazi voiceover barks, “Achtung, achtung, these are your orders. Anyone found guilty of consuming more than their allotted amount of air will be slaughtered and cremated. Only one cubic foot of air is allowed.”

Full lyrics below.

David Bowie We Are Hungry Men Song Satirizes Overpopulation Eugenicists 250509BANNER

When I live my dream, I’ll take you with me
Riding on a golden horse
We’ll live within my castle, with people there to serve you
Happy at the sound of your voice

Baby, I’ll slay a dragon for you
Or banish wicked giants from the land
But you will find, that nothing in my dream can hurt you
We will only love each other as forever
When I live my dream

  • A d v e r t i s e m e n t

When I live my dream, I’ll forgive the things you’ve told me
And the empty man you left behind
It’s a broken heart that dreams, it’s a broken heart you left me
Only love can live in my dream

I’ll wish, and the thunder clouds will vanish
Wish, and the storm will fade away
Wish again, and you will stand before me while the sky will paint an overture
And trees will play the rhythm of my dream

When I live my dream, please be there to meet me
Let me be the one to understand
When I live my dream, I’ll forget the hurt you gave me
Then we can live in our new land

Till the day my dream cascades around me
I’m content to let you pass me by
Till that day, you’ll run to many other men
But let them know it’s just for now
Tell them that I’ve got a dream
And tell them you’re the starring role
Tell them I’m a dreaming kind of guyavoice: here is the news
According to the latest world population survey
The figures have reached danger point, my god
London 15 million 75 thousand
New york 80 million
Paris 15 million and 30
China 1000 million
Braidlington-spa lots

My studies included suffragy
I formed my own society
To crush the bear of fecundity
The world will overpopulate
Unless you claim infertility
So who will buy a drink for me, your messiah

We are not your friends
We don’t give a damn for what you’re saying
We’re here to live our lives

I propose to give the pill
Free of charge to those that feel
That they are not infertible
The kroks of you, the cattle gun
There’s only one way to linger on
So who will buy a drink for me, your messiah

We are not your friends
We don’t give a damn for what you’re saying
We’re here to live our lives

Voice:
Achtung, achtung, these are your orders
Anyone found guilty of consuming more than their allotted amount of air
Will be slaughtered and cremated
Only one cubic foot of air is allowed …

I have prepared a document, legalising mass abortion
We will turn a blind eye to infanticide

We are not your friends
We don’t give a damn for what you’re saying
We’re here to live our lives

You don’t seem to hear me clear
Do I talk above your sphere?
Let me explain my project , dear
Show you how I’ll save the world
Or let it die within the year
Why do you look that way at me, your messiah

We are not your friends
We don’t give a damn for what you’re saying
We’re here to live our lives

We are hungry men
We don’t give a damn for what you’re saying
We’re here to eat you
And I’m going to make my dream
Tell them I will live my dream
Tell them they can laugh at me
But don’t forget your date with me
When I live my dream
