El enemigo en casa

Lou Reed: Sword of Damocles (1992)

I see The Sword of Damocles
is right above your head.
They're trying a new treatment
to get you out of bed,
But radiation kills both bad and good,
it can not differentiate.
So to cure you they must kill you,
the Sword of Damocles hangs above your head.

Now I have seen lots of people die

from car crashes or drugs.
Last night on 33rd St.
I saw a kid get hit by a bus,
But this drawn out torture over which part of you lives
is very hard to take.
To cure you they must kill you
the Sword of Damocles above your head.

That mix of morphine and dexedrine

we use it on the street.
It kills the pain and keeps you up
your very soul to keep.
But this guessing game has its own rules,
the good don't always win,
And might makes right
the Sword of Damocles is hanging above your head.
