I Believe Lyrics

by Lou Reed

Valerie Solanis took the elevator
Got off at the forth floor
Valerie Solanis took the elevator
Got off at the forth floor
She pointed the gun at Andy saying
You cannot control me anymore

I believe there's got to be some retribution
I believe an eye for an eye is elemental
I believe that something's wrong
If she's alive right now

Valerie Solanis took three steps
Pointing at the floor
Valerie Solanis waved her gun
Pointing at the floor
From inside her idiot madness, spoke
And bang, Andy fell onto the floor

I believe life's serious enough for retribution
I believe being sick is no excuse
And I believe I would've pulled
The switch on her myself

When they got him to the hospital
His pulse was gone they thought that he was dead
His guts were pouring from his wounds
Onto the floor they thought that he was dead

Not until years later
Would the hospital do to him
What she could not, what she could not
Where were you, you didn't come to see me

Andy said, "I think I died, why
Didn't you come to see me?
Andy said, It hurt so much
They took blood from my hand

I believe there's got to be some retribution
I believe there's got to be some restitution
I believe we are all the poorer for it now

Visit me, visit me, visit me, visit me
Visit me, why didn't you visit me?
Visit me, why didn't you visit me?
Visit me, visit me, visit me
Why didn't you visit me ?
