    damn it, i hate when immortals die, it gives me a very clear notion that we will all die one day. i mean we all know that, but do we really know it.
    cause of death not yet released but in Lou Reeds case, after a 71 years long winning streak of being awesome, his heart probably gave in

    to be honest, I never was much into The Velvet Underground's or Lou Reed's music. But I do recognize his importance to the scene.

    I don't know just where I'm going
    But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
    'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
    When I put a spike into my vein
    And I'll tell ya, things aren't quite the same
    When I'm rushing on my run
    And I feel just like Jesus' son
    And I guess that I just don't know
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I have made the big decision
    I'm gonna try to nullify my life
    'Cause when the blood begins to flow
    When it shoots up the dropper's neck
    When I'm closing in on death
    And you can't help me now, you guys
    And a
    You can all go take a walk
    And I guess that I just don't know
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
    I wish that I'd sail the darkened seas
    On a great big clipper ship
    Going from this land here to that
    In a sailor's suit and cap
    Away from the big city
    Where a man can not be free
    Of all of the evils of this town
    And of himself, and those around
    Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
    Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

    Heroin, be the death of me
    Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
    Because a mainer to my vein
    Leads to a center in my head
    And then I'm better off and dead
    Because when the smack begins to flow
    I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jim's in this town
    And all the politicians makin' crazy sounds
    And everybody puttin' everybody else down
    And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

    'Cause when the smack begins to flow
    Then I really don't care anymore
    Ah, when the heroin is in my blood
    And that blood is in my head
    Then thank God that I'm as good as dead
    Then thank your God that I'm not aware
    And thank God that I just don't care
    And I guess I just don't know
    And I guess I just don't know
