Lou Reed lyrics : "Endless Cycle"

The bias of the father runs on through the son
and leaves him bothered and bewildered
The drugs in his veins only cause him to spit

at the face staring back in the mirror
How can he tell a good act from the bad
he can't even remember his name

How can he do what needs to be done
when he's a follower not a leader

The sickness of the mother runs on through the girl
leaving her small and helpless
Liquor files through her brain with the force of a gun

leaving her running in circles
How can she tell a good act from the bad
when she's flat on her back in her room

How can she do what needs to be done
when she's a coward and a bleeder

The man if he marries will batter his child
and have endless excuses
The woman sadly will do much the same

thinking that it's right and it's proper
Better than their mommy or their daddy did
Better than the childhood they suffered

The truth is they're happier when they're in pain
In fact, that's why they got married
