Lou Reed – How Do You Think It Feels

Tämä biisi on Lou Reedin Berlin-albumilta. Berlin on konseptialbumi, joka kertoo Jimistä ja hänen vaimostaan Carolinesta. Caroline on narkomaani, joka tekee mitä tahansa aineensa eteen.

How Do You Think It Feels kertoo siitä, kun Jimille selviää, että Caroline myy itseään pystyäkseen ylläpitämään yhä pahenevaa amfetamiiniaddiktiotaan.

“How do you think it feels
When you’re speeding and lonely
Come here baby
How do you think it feels
When all you can say is: If only

If only I had a little
If only I had some change
If only, if only, only
How do you think it feels
And when do you think it stops?

How do you think it feels
When you’ve been up for five days
Come down here Mama
Hunting around always
‘Cause you’re afraid of sleeping

How do you think it feels
To feel like a wolf and foxy
How do you think it feels
To always make love by proxy?
How do you think it feels
And when do you think it stops?
When do you think it stops?”

Lou Reed – Street Hassle

Biisi jakaantuu kolmeen osaan. Toisessa osassa huumediileri puhuu naisen kuolemasta.

“Hey, that cunt’s not breathing
I think she had too much of something or other
Hey, man, you know what I mean
I don’t mean to scare you”

Lou Reed – Perfect Day

“Oh, it’s such a perfect day
I’m glad I spend it with you
Oh, such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on”

Biisin on tulkittu mm. kuvaavan Lou Reedin heroiinin käyttöä.
