LYRICS 

When I was just seventeen 
Sex no longer held a mystery
I saw it as a commodity 
To be bought and sold
Like rock and roll

Day by day I plunged deeper
Into a world of cheap sensation
This held a great attraction for me
And I dreamt of my own club

And when I danced and saw you dance
I saw a gambling room in the back
With prostitutes skilled in the art
Of tango, lies and exploitation

My club was open to all
The brightest lights you ever saw
The darkest corners for having fun
Happy faces no questions asked

Late one night the club was heaving 
I saw a vampire move across the floor
Open wide with a silver cane
Lusting for youth in a mirror

And when I danced and saw you dance
I saw a world where the dead are worshipped
This world belongs to them
Now they can keep it

I live alone and walk the dark edge
Of the shop light shadow
And each display a private hell
Name you price you're up for sale

And when I danced and saw you dance
I saw a world where the dead are worshipped
This world belongs to them
Now they can keep it

This a great song from a very great album. The song was recorded a little faster than actually played, making the guitars sound like they're tuned like a quarter of a semi-tone. So, I'd recommend tuning up a very slight bit, putting the song on and playing along because it's definitely a good time.
