Dime Store Mystery - Lou Reed

He was lying banged and battered, skewered and bleeding

Talking crippled on the cross

 

Was His mind reeling and heaving, hallucinating

 

Fleeing what a loss

 

The things He hadn't touched or kissed

His senses slowly stripped away

 

Not like Buddha, not like Vishnu

 

Life wouldn't rise through Him again

 

I find it easy to believe

 

That He might question His beliefs

 

The beginning of the last temptation

 

Dime story mystery

 

The duality of nature, Godly nature

Human nature splits the soul

 

Fully human, fully divine and divided

The great immortal soul

 

Split into pieces, whirling pieces, opposites attract

 

From the front, the side, the back

 

The mind itself attacks

 

I know this feeling, I know it from before

 

Descartes through Hegel belief is never sure

 

Dime store mystery, last temptation

 

I was sitting, drumming, thinking, thumping, pondering

The mysteries of life

 

Outside the city shrieking, screaming, whispering

 

The mysteries of life

 

There's a funeral tomorrow

 

At St. Patrick's the bells will ring for you

 

Ah, what must you have been thinking

When you realized the time had come for you

 

I wish I hadn't thrown away my time

 

On so much human and so much less divine

 

The end of the last temptation

 

The end of a dime store mystery
