Lou Reed – Outside lyrics

Outside the world's a mindless child
outside
Outside reflects the worst of styles
outside
Inside when you're in my arms
a mindless child is still to be borne
Inside, baby, when we come inside

Outside the politics of greed
outside
Outside misbehavior seethes
outside
Mindless repression dominates the street
while I kneel down and kiss your feet
Inside, baby, when we come inside
outside

Outside they don't think they breed
outside
Outside emotion determines need
outside
Outside the world's a mindless child
that we could bring to life in your arms
Inside, baby, when we come inside

Outside the politics of hate an greed
outside
Outside the world's a mindless child
outside
But when I hold you in my arms
it's a mindless child that you want
Inside, no matter 'bout the world Outside

Inside, a baby's what you want inside
