Heroin - The Velvet Underground.

I don’t know just where I’m going 
But I’m gonna try for the kingdom, if I can 
‘Cause it makes me feel like I’m a man 
When I put a spike into my vein 
And I’ll tell ya, things aren’t quite the same 
When I’m rushing on my run 
And I feel just like Jesus’ son 
And I guess that I just don’t know 
And I guess that I just don’t know 

I have made the big decision 
I’m gonna try to nullify my life 
'Cause when the blood begins to flow 
When it shoots up the dropper’s neck 
When I’m closing in on death 
And you can’t help me now, you guys 
And a 
You can all go take a walk 
And I guess that I just don’t know 
And I guess that I just don’t know 

I wish that I was born a thousand years ago 
I wish that I’d sail the darkened seas 
On a great big clipper ship 
Going from this land here to that 
In a sailor’s suit and cap 
Away from the big city 
Where a man can not be free 
Of all of the evils of this town 
And of himself, and those around 
Oh, and I guess that I just don’t know 
Oh, and I guess that I just don’t know 

Heroin, be the death of me 
Heroin, it’s my wife and it’s my life 
Because a mainer to my vein 
Leads to a center in my head 
And then I’m better off and dead 
Because when the smack begins to flow 
I really don’t care anymore 
About all the Jim-Jim’s in this town 
And all the politicians makin’ crazy sounds 
And everybody puttin’ everybody else down 
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds 

'Cause when the smack begins to flow 
Then I really don’t care anymore 
Ah, when the heroin is in my blood 
And that blood is in my head 
Then thank God that I’m as good as dead 
Then thank your God that I’m not aware 
And thank God that I just don’t care 
And I guess I just don’t know 
And I guess I just don’t know

SONG of the DAY _ Venus in Furs ~ The Velvet Underground - from “The Velvet Underground & Nico” (1967)

Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Comes in bells, your servant, don’t forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Downy sins of streetlight fancies
Chase the costumes she shall wear
Ermine furs adorn the imperious
Severin, Severin awaits you there
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Kiss the boot of shiny, shiny leather
Shiny leather in the dark
Tongue of thongs, the belt that does await you
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart
Severin, Severin, speak so slightly
Severin, down on your bended knee
Taste the whip, in love not given lightly
Taste the whip, now plead for me
I am tired, I am weary
I could sleep for a thousand years
A thousand dreams that would awake me
Different colors made of tears
Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather
Whiplash girl child in the dark
Severin, your servant comes in bells, please don’t forsake him
Strike, dear mistress, and cure his heart

I’ll Be Your Mirror - The Velvet Underground.

I’ll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know
I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you’re home
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
‘Cause I see you
I find it hard to believe you don’t know
The beauty that you are
But if you don’t let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won’t be afraid
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you’re twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I’ll be your mirror
