    "The Valley Of Unrest" Lyrics

    Lou Reed

    Far away far away
    Are not all lovely things far away
    As far at least lies that valley
    As the bedridden sun in the luminous east
    The paralyzed mountains, the sickly river
    Are not all things lovely far away
    Are not all things lovely far away

    It is a valley where time is not interrupted
    Where its history shall not be interpreted
    Stories of Satan's dart of angel wings
    Unhappy things

    Within the valley of unrest

    The sun ray dripped all red
    The dell was silent
    All the people having gone to war
    Leaving no interrogator to mind
    The willful looting the pale past knowledge
    The sly mysterious stars
    The unguarded flowers leaning
    The tulips overhead paler
    The terror stricken sky
    Rolling like a waterfall
    Over the horizon's fiery wall
    A visage full of meaning

    How the unhappy shall confess
    As Roderick watches like a human eye
    While violets and lilies wave

    Like banners in the sky
    Hovering over and above a grave
    As dew drops on the freshly planted eternal dew
    Coming down in gems
    There's no use to pretend
    Though gorgeous clouds fly
    Roderick, like the human eye has closed forever
    Far away far away

    Roderick, whatever thy image may be
    Roderick, no magic shall sever the music from thee
    Thou hast bound many eyes in a dreamy sleep
    Oh tortured day
    The strains still arrive
    I hear the bells
    I have kept my vigilance
    Rain dancing in the rhythm of a shower
    Over what guilty spirit to not hear the beating
    To not hear the beating heart
    But only tears of perfect moan
    Only tears of perfect moan
