      About "The Heroine"

      Lyrics for Lou Reed - "The Heroine"

      The heroine stood up on the deck
      The ship was out of control
      The bow was being ripped to shreds
      Men were fighting down below
      The sea had pummeled the boat for so long
      That they knew nothing but fear

      And the baby's in the box, he thinks the door is locked
      The sea is in a state, the baby learns to wait
      For the heroine, ooohh for the heroine
      Locked in his defense, he waits for the heroine

      The mast is cracking as he waves are slapping
      Sailors roll across the deck
      And when they thought none was looking
      They would cut a weaker man's neck
      While the heroine dressed in a virgin white dress
      Tried to steer the mighty ship
      But the raging storm wouldn't hear of it
      They were in for a long trip

      Baby's in the box, he thinks the door is locked
      He finds it hard to breathe, drawing in the sea
      And where's the heroine to fire off the gun
      To calm the raging seas and let herself be seized by the

      Baby in the box, he thinks the door is locked
      The woman has the keys
      But there is no moment she can seize
      Here's to the heroine, who transcends all the men
      Who are locked inside the box
      Will the lady let them out
      Ooohh the heroine, ooohh the heroine
      Strapped to the mast, the pale ascendant heroine
