Damaged
by Blue Öyster Cult

Wish I was a better person
With more control
Turn the other cheek
But when the punch comes, roll
Wish I was a kinder person
Could see the other's pain
Not overreact, never judge
Shrug off the spreadin' stain

But I'm a howler monkey
Moreau's half and half-man
A panther with its tail in a trap
A pumped up pyramid of pulsing glands

I'm damaged, and I like it
It made me what I am
I'm damaged, and I like it
The rest is just a sham

I'm damaged, and I like it
I live for rock 'n' roll
I'm damaged, and I like it
It thrills me to the soul

Gee, I told the girlfriend
I was gonna change
Gonna kick the habit and the taste
Trust me baby, this time it's real
There's a big part of me I've yet to waste

Don't give up baby, don't turn your back
I ain't no wailin' lost cause
I'll toss the pipe and heal the tracks
As long as you don't mind the blood
On my hands, drippin' down your back
That's right...

I'm damaged, and I like it
It made me what I am
I'm damaged, and I like it
The rest is just a sham

I'm damaged, and I like it
I live for rock 'n' roll
I'm damaged, and I like it
It thrills me to the soul

D-a-m-a-g-e-d [damaged] is what I am
D-a-m-a-g-e-d [damaged] is what I am
D-a-m-a-g-e-d [damaged] is what I am
D-a-m-a-g-e-d
What I am

[Damaged]
And I like it
I live for rock 'n' roll
I'm damaged, and I like it
It thrills me to the soul

I'm damaged, and I like it
It made me what I am
I'm damaged, and I like it
The rest is just a sham

Yeah!
Go

extremely good quality band, amazing work

@Anthony Jacobs Fire of Unknown Origin: my 3rd fav BOC album, with their title track followed up by their masterpiece: "Burnin for You". My opinion the first 2 songs are the best, but the album is very strong all the way through.

John Shirley

OH GRAND POOBAH OF PENIS! You are so right. Also--you're right about the lyrics! I'm surprised you were able to decode that stanza starting with the howler monkey thing--I WROTE the lyrics and I had forgotten that bit...but that's It! People get lyrics wrong so often on you tube and on those internet lyrics sites. Where'd you get these? Note the great Allen Lanier playing organ on this--he's passed away now. The current band is very very good. Watch for a new album. And check out BLUE COUPE with the Bouchard brothers from the original BOC and Dennis Dunaway from Alice Cooper. Great band.

Lot's of ways to be damaged, F'd up childhood, unhealthy social relations and habits, hard times and bad choices, will grind you down little by little. Sometimes I feel like an old used car. Dents and dings and rust, but I'm still a classic from a better time, and they don't make 'em like that any more. D-A-M-A-G-E-D that's what I am!

I feel you are emotionally and mentally tired. The two combined drain you. I DO feel you.
