album _Mistrial_
(Lou Reed, 1986)

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


        Outside the world's a mindless child
        outside
        Outside reflects the worst of styles
        outside
        Inside when you're in my arms
        a mindless child is still to be born
        Inside, baby, when we come inside
        ah

        Outside the politics of greed
        outside
        Outside misbehavior seethes
        outside
        Mindless repression dominates the street
        while I kneel down and kiss your feet
        Inside, baby, when we come inside
        outside

        Outside they don't think they breed
        outside
        Outside emotion determines need
        outside
        Outside the world's a mindless child
        that we could bring to life in your arms
        Inside, baby, when we come inside

        Outside the politics of hate an greed
        outside
        Outside the world's a mindless child
        outside
        But when I hold you in my arms
        it's a mindless child that you want
        Inside, no matter 'bout the world outside

        Inside, a baby's what you want inside

"Outside"

Outside the world's a mindless child Outside
Outside reflects the worst of styles Outside
Inside when you're in my arms
A mindless child is still to be borne
Inside, Baby, when we come Inside

Outside the politics of greed Outside
Outside misbehavior seethes Outside
Mindless repression dominates the street
While I kneel down and kiss your feet
Inside, Baby, when we come Inside

Outside they don't think they breed Outside
Outside emotion determines need Outside
Outside the world's a mindless child
That we could bring to life
In your arms
Inside, Baby, when we come Inside

Outside the politics of hate an greed Outside
Outside the world's a mindless child Outside
But when I hold you in my arms
It's a mindless child that you want
Inside, no matter 'bout the world Outside
Inside, a baby's what you want Inside
