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
