Slip Away (A Warning) Lyrics

Artist: Lou Reed
Album: Songs For Drella

Friends have said to lock the door
and have an open house no more
the said the Factory must change
And slowly slip away

But if I have to live in fear
where will I get my ideas
with all those crazy people gone
Will I slowly slip away

Still there's no more Billy Name
Ondine is not the same
Wonton and the Turtle gone
Slowly slip away
slowly slip away

If I close the Factory door
and don't see those people anymore
if I give in to infamy
I'll slowly slip away

I know it seems that friends are right
hello daylight, goodbye night
but starlight is so quiet here
Think I'll slowly slip away

What can I do by myself
it's good to here from someone else
it's good to hear a crazy voice
Will not slip away
will not slip away

If I have to live in fear
my ideas will slowly slip away

If I have to live in fear
I'm afraid my life will slip away

If you can't see me past my door
why your thoughts could slowly slip away

If I have to lock the door
another life exists no more slip away

Friends have said to lock the door
watch out for who comes through the door
the said the Factory must change

But I don't
