"Paranoia Key Of E"

album _Ecstasy_
(Lou Reed, 2000)

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


        How come you say you will and then you won't
        you change your mind and then you say you don't
        The mystery is why I play the goat
        the mystery you call love

        Sometimes you're like an eagle strong like a rock
        other times it seems you get unlocked
        And all your worst fears come tumbling out
        into the street, into the snow

        I remember when you had a dream
        everything was what it seemed to be
        But now nightmares replace everything
        and everything you see is wrong

        You said we'd meet but you're two hours late
        you said you thought someone had picked your gate
        So you hid and were afraid to wait
        seeing shadows in the snow
        Seeing shadows in the snow

        Now your friend Godfrey is a perfect choice
        one minute down next time rejoice, he seems -
        - To have found the perfect voice
        paranoia key of E

        Let's say everything he says is true
        you love me but I cheat on you
        And in my bedroom is a female zoo
        worse then Clinton in prime time

        I swear to you I'm not with Jill or Joyce
        or Cyd or Sherry or Darlene or worse
        I'm not kissing you while inside I curse
        paranoia key of E

        Let's play a game the next time we meet, ah
        I'll be the hands and you be the feet
        And together we will keep the beat
        to paranoia key of E

        Now you know mania's in the key of B
        psychosis in the key of C
        Let's hope that we're not meant to be
        in paranoia key of E

        Anorexia is in G flat
        and F is anything I've left out
        Dyslexia, kleptomania and vertigo
        patricide A, matricide D the same schizos

        Paranoia key of E

        Let's have a coda in the key of K
        something that only we can play
        Maybe we'll light up like a hundred K
        paranoia out of key

        Paranoia key of E
        paranoia key of E

        Anorexia, dyslexia
        kleptomania, patricide A, matricide D, vertigo, schizos

        Paranoia key of E, paranoia
        paranoia, paranoia, paranoia key of E
        Paranoia, paranoia, paranoia key of E

They are the exact words he sings,
not just lyrics I copied from the booklet.



Paranoia key of E
------------------

How come you say you will and then you won't
You change your mind and then you say you don't
The mystery is why I play the goat
The mystery you call love

Sometimes you're like an eagle strong like a rock
Other times it seems you get unlocked
and all your worst fears come tumbling out
into the street into the snow

I remember when you had a dream
Everything was what it seemed to be
But now nightmares replace everything
and everything you see is wrong

You said we'd meet but you're 2 hours late
You said you thought someone had picked your gate
so you hid and were afraid to wait
seeing shadows in the snow
seeing shadows in the snow

Now your friend Godfrey is a perfect choice
One minute down next time rejoice
He seems to have found the perfect voice
Paranoia key of E

Let's say everything he says is true
You love me but I cheat on you
and in my bedroom is a female zoo
worse then Clinton in prime time
I swear to you I'm not with Jill or Joyce
or Cyd or Sherry or Darlene or worse
I'm not kissing you while inside I curse
Paranoia key of E

Let's play a game the next time we meet
I'll be the hands and you be the feet
and together we will keep the beat
to paranoia key of E

Now I know mania's in the key of B
Psychosis in the key of C
Let's hope that we're not meant to be
in paranoia key of E

Anorexia is in G flat
and F is anything I've left out
dyslexia, kleptomania and vertigo
patricide A and matricide D the same schizos
Paranoia key of E

Let's have a coda in the key of K
Something that only we can play
Maybe we'll light up like a 100K
Paranoia out of key
Paranoia key of E
Paranoia key of E

Anorexia, dyslexia
kleptomania, patricide a, matricide D,
vertigo, schizos
Paranoia key of E
Paranoia, paranoia, paranoia, paranoia key of E
Paranoia, paranoia, paranoia key of E
