"Change"
===================
album _The Raven_
(Lou Reed, 2003)

written by Lou Reed
===================


        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and change is always for the worse
        The worm on the hook always eaten by a fish
        the fish by bird man or worse
        A spot on the lung, a spot on your heart
        an aneurism of the soul
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it comes equipped with a curse

        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse

        The only thing constantly changing is change
        the living only become dead
        Your hair falling out, your liver swelled up
        your teeth rot your gums and your chin
        Your ass starts to sag, your balls shrivel up
        your cock swallowed up in their sack
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always change on your back

        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse, baby

        The only thing constantly changing is change
        ashes to ashes to dusk
        The deer and the rabbit, the musk of your hole
        filled up with myriad dread, ooohhh
        The dread of the living, the dread of the living
        the frightening pulse of the night, ah
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        it's changes that will kill us with fright

        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it's always for the worse
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        the only thing constantly changing is change
        The only thing constantly changing is change
        and it comes equipped with my curse
