"Growing Up In Public"
===================================
album _Growing Up In Public_
(Lou Reed, 1980)

written by Lou Reed/Michael Fonfara
===================================


        Some people are into the power of power
        The absolute corrupting power, that makes great men insane
        While some people find their refreshment in action
        The manipulation, encroachment
        and destruction of their inferiors

        Growing up in public
        growing up in public
        Growing up in public
        growing up in public with your pants down

        Some people are into their sadistic pleasures
        They whet your desires and they drool in your ears
        They're quasi-effeminate characters
        in love with oral gratification
        They edify your integrity, so they can play on your fears

        And they're gonna do it in public
        'cause you're growing up in public
        They're gonna do it to you in public
        'cause you're growing up in public with your pants down

        Some people think being a man is unmanly
        And then some people think that whole concept's a joke
        But some people think being a man is the whole point
        And then some people wish they'd never awoke

        Up from a dream of nightmarish proportions
        Down to a size neither regal nor calm
        A Prince Hamlet caught the middle
        between reason and instinct
        Caught in the middle with your pants down again

        Caught in the middle
        I'm really caught in the middle
        I'm caught in the middle
        caught in the middle, baby, deciding about you
