It's kind-of implied that the verses of this David Bowie song are about closet bisexuality or something, but then how do you think the chorus fits into all that?

Oh don't lean on me man cuz you can't afford the ticket,
Back from Suffragette City

What do voting rights activists have to do with it?

(I'm kind of bored in a coffee shop and they started playing that over the sound system.)
