the velvet underground – rip lou reed

loureedNew York City, New York City
Your dregs are so heartbreaking, so pretty
A subway car wrapped in a velvet dress
Independent of commercial success
Abstract thought put into plan
By a Dracula and Cinderella man
John’s electrically amplified viola drones
Holds the factory hand of femme fatale Nico
Gravel, sand, and water on the horizon
Punk and indie alive in a chalky confusion
Honey sweet sax blown over
Fade in, fade out, twisted lover
The button man’s hollow corner
Produces exaggerated armor
In the heart of the night
My heart’s just right

From A Circus Mind by Ryan Cox
