Velvet Underground-Heroin
    #9414448 - 12/11/08 07:44 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

This song is incredible. I can understand all the lyrics deeply from my opiate experiences

Anyone else love this song?



Some lyrics:

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 not, you guys
And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
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 than 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' busy sounds
And everybody puttin' everybody else down
And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

I love that song, but it makes me not want to do heroin.  "Heroin.....be the death of me."

This song should be the anthem for heroin addicts

the song invokes mixed emotions in me. he's not saying heroin IS good, or IS bad. it just is. that's what i like about it. i feel likewise about opiates. most of the time oh i just don't know...

This song doesn't make me feel that it is Good or Bad, it makes me realize how powerful it is.  "Its my wife and its my life" how many other pharmacological agents can do this?

The Velvet Underground is one of my favorite bands.  Heroin is a great song, very dark and morbid.  Most of their songs are about heroin, including Sister Ray, a 17 minute song where they just jam out, and Lou Reed screams that he can't find his vein.  However, their song Street Hassle is probably one of the most offensive songs I've ever heard.  The instrumentals are extremely strange, there's an electric violin, a bass, a cello, and Bruce Springsteen mumbles something.  Very out there.  The song is about what to do with some guy's girlfriend after she OD's:

But when someone turns that blue
Well, its a universal truth
And then you just know that bitch will never fuck again
By the way, thats really some bad shit
That you came to our place with
But you ought to be more careful around the little girls
Its either the best or its the worst
And since I dont have to choose
I guess I wont and I know this aint no way to treat a guest
But why dont you grab your old lady by the feet
And just lay her out on the darkened street
And by morning, shes just another hit and run
You know, some people got no choice
And they cant never find a voice
To talk with that they can even call their own
So the first thing that they see
That allows them the right to be
Why they follow it, you know, its called bad luck

I remember the first time I heard this song, and at the time I knew nothing of the velvet underground. It is the one that got me hooked.(on velvet that is)
