Check this one
Fell to the red room
Because she was there, oh
A scarlet woman
She got me in fear, yeah, yeah, yeah

She said do all those things that you do to me
You know what I mean, boy
Do all those things that you do to me yeah

Love remover love remover machine
You little soul shaker love remover machine

Baby baby baby baby baby I fell from the sky
Yesterday you blew my mind oh yeah
Having trouble with my direction
Upside down psychotic reaction

Love removal love removal machine
You little soul shaker love removal machine
You little love removal machine
You little fun removal love removal machine

Love removal love removal machine
You little fun remover fun removal machine
You little love removal machine
You little soul shaker love removal machine

Look out here she comes
Look out here she comes
I said, look out here she comes
Look out here she comes, ya ya

Shake it don't break it baby
Shake it don't break it baby
Shake it don't break it baby
Shake it don't break it

Baby
Ah yay

    Song MeaningThere are times in a man's live, especially a young man's life, when he may find himself with an excess of "love" in his system. This usually harmless condition can cause discomfort and in severe cases painful swelling in the epididymis.

    Treatment is simple, mostly involving the excess "love" being drained by an accommodating young Miss (usually). This song celebrates one such, who is so adept at this process as to be a veritable "love removal machine".

    All of which sheds a certain light on The Cult's 1985 album, named "Love".

    General CommentI'm inclined to go with charming man & ultimate. Lyric says "scarlet woman" , "red room", in lyric & lore, 'scarlet' is often referred to pro, or woman of the night. This woman relieved him of his tension built up in his nutsack. In doing so, there was no "love" associated with the act. Also, afterwards, he was satisfied, & had no more desire for any more sex, she becoming the " Love Removal Machine ".
    But that's my take. I speak from experience. My balls ready to explode, I checked onto a massage parlor, way back in 1979, at the age of 19. Laid down my $$$, & had a nice tall blonde (young) woman relieve me of my load. No love involved at all. She was also my love removal machine. I have never looked at females the same since. Kinda sad, but done already.

    General Comment..From the album "electric" - a very different sounding album than its predecessor "Love". The latter was a goth classic album whilst the former sounds like ACDC!
    I had always assumed it was about having fun with a prostitute - no love or strings attached.

    General CommentLike charming man said, it's about pretty much they've had good sex in a room, and probably a prostitute

    General CommentHe is only with her because he was scared of being on his own. And then she treats him like crap and removes any love he had for her by being a harpy. And the fun as well.
    Happens to us all. :D

    Yay, the knowledge of hindsight!
