You are an american. I can see being afraid of me. But thats just Freudian.

It may be ....
...related to the general apathy and superficiality of western society?

These are things to worry about for sure.

But how does this get manifested in your dreams?
Always tricky, dreams are not to taken literal, logical or factual.
In hindsight they sometimes seem to be
predictive, but then.. that may be your mind, trying make sense of it.

Maybe to do with some cultural differences in Japan and USA in your case?
Although from what i see and hear and read, Japan is highly 'Americanized/westernized'
Luckily also their original traditions are not forgotten fully (yet)

(Feel free to correct this ignorant Monkey ;) )

The lyrics of the song in question, can be taken more general,read 'global'
And this does not make it better :(
" I'm afraid of Americans
I'm afraid of the world
I'm afraid I can't help it "

But then again, its just Bowie! an artist that felt that way at that time?
