Baby its slow
When lights
Go low
There's no help
No
Baby its slow
When lights
Go low
There's no help
No
He's
Drilling through
The spiritus sanctus
Tonight
Through
The dark hip falls
Screaming
Oh you mambos
Kill me
And
Kill me
And
Kill me
If I
Jerk the handle
You'll die
In your dreams
If I
Jerk the handle
Jerk the handle
You'll
Thrill me
And
Thrill me
And
Thrill me
Baby it's slow
When lights
Go low
There's no help
No

    General Comment:"a political song . . . having to do with . . . the Americans sending in these people, trained torturers in South America . . . I imagined these lovers in a conversation . . . if you listen the words of The Electrician it really explains itself after Ive started." - Scott Walker in a 1984 radio interview

    My Opinion:as a south american, and knowing about the tortures he mentions... i love how Scott Walker has this mysterious way of writing that keeps me thinking and listening, thinking and listening, thinking and listening... again and again... i think that i can actually put myself in the scene, and feel what's going as a victim... screaming "oh you mambos! kill me and kill me and kill me"
