Today’s Yesterday Track – Here’s Legend LOU REED Thirty-Five Years Ago…

I cringe at my terror, I hate my own smell
I know where I must be, I must be in hell

Artist: LOU REED

Track: WAVES OF FEAR (from his 1982 Blue Mask LP – 35 years ago)

Score: one of his most intense, explosive and self-reproaching outburst ever, performed with bitter anger, crushing fear and far-reaching frustration. Breathtaking emotions…

Waves of fear, attack in the night
Waves of revulsion, sickening sights
My heart’s nearly bursting, my chest’s choking tight

Waves of fear, waves of fear

Waves of fear, squat on the floor
Looking for some pill, the liquor is gone
Blood drips from my nose, I can barely breathe
Waves of fear, I’m too scared to leave

Waves of fear, waves of fear
Waves of fear, waves of fear

I’m too afraid to use the phone
I’m too afraid to put the light on
I’m so afraid I’ve lost control
I’m suffocating without a word

Crazy with sweat, spittle on my jaw
What’s that funny noise, what’s that on the floor
Waves of fear, pulsing with death
I curse my tremors, I jump at my own step
I cringe at my terror, I hate my own smell
I know where I must be, I must be in hell

Waves of fear, waves of fear
Waves of fear, waves of fear

Here’s an electrical live rendition of this awesome song…
