Black Mambo
Glass Animals Lyrics


What'll it be now mister mole
Whisper sloth in curls of smoke
Take a back seat or play pharaoh
Dance with me and shake your bones

Slow down
It's a science
He's been waiting to bring you down

Snake eyed
With a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

Leopards laze each
On plush pillows
Slender capes
Of red and chrome

Paperback dreams
In their deep doze
Twitch their toes to black mambo

Slow down
It's a science
He's been waiting
To bring you down

Snake eyed
With a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

Wanna play cheat now says the sloth
A domino flush to his nose

Tickle that cheek
And take your throne
Pump your veins
With gushing gold

Slow down it's a science
He's been waiting
To bring you down
Snake eyed with a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you

When I listen to this song what I see in my head is a story of Satan slithering on the screen in the form of a snake who then takes the form of a handsome man who then stalks a woman into a seedy bar. He temps this innocent looking woman with his charms and his "sly smile" and she's lured into his trap.

He takes her home with him, makes attempts to bed her, she wants to resist but it's such a difficult task to resist such a tantalizing offer as he just charms his way into her pants. Then as they're in the throws of passion, he makes to "take her soul"; his eyes flicker to that of a reptile and he grows fangs and much like a vampire, he feeds on her. But soon her "innocent" red blood turns black and she sinks her nails into his back, clawing him as her eyes turn reptilian and she bites him back and drains him dry, escaping from under him.

Then she leaves to the same bar after transforming into a snake herself looking all the more tantalizing than before when she changes back to human form but now her innocence is gone as she slinks into the bar again to continue the cycle, her eyes settling on an innocent looking male.

I call it "The Dance of Lucifer and Lilith".

I know; I'm weird.

[Verse 1]
What’ll it be now mister mole
Whispers sloth in curls of smoke
Take a back seat, or play pharaoh
Dance with me and shake your bones

[Chorus]
Slow down
It’s a science
He’s been waiting to
Bring you down
Snake eyed
With a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

[Verse 2]
Leopards laze each on plush pillows
Slender capes of red and chrome
Paperback dreams in their deep doze
Twitch their toes to black mambo

[Chorus]
Slow down
It’s a science
He’s been waiting to
Bring you down
Snake eyed
With a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

[Verse 3]
Wanna play cheat now says the sloth
A domino flush to his nose
Tickle that cheek and take your throne
Pump your veins with gushing gold

[Chorus]
Slow down
It’s a science
He’s been waiting to
Bring you down
Snake eyed
With a sly smile
He can hold you
And shake you child

[Outro]
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you
We can hold you

In my book, one of the villains licks the main character's ear. I used it as a metaphor meaning he got his attention.
