Heroin

Lyrics

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

I don't know just where I'm going
But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can

This song doesn't get any less powerful with time, that's for sure.

Heroin isn't in my top ten for Velvet songs. It's good, but it suffers from too much heroin. I prefer Sweet Jane and Beginning to See the Light. The lighter side of the Velvets has more depth than people give them credit for.

This song is what got me hooked on The Velvet Underground. Even though I must admit, while I can't totally get into the complete tone of the song, I do get the gist of it which is all that matters.
