Electric Feel Lyrics

All along the western front
People line up to receive.
She got the power in her hand
To shock you like you won't believe.
Saw her in the amazon
With the voltage running through her skin
Standing there with nothing on
She gonna teach me how...

    It's actually not even about sex. If you look up when the band performed on David Letterman, they explain how it's actually referring to drugs.

    “the verb ‘to turn on’ has many meanings within the drug-using community. It is a rich and magical term, encompassing an enormous variety of situations and activities. Its imagery is borrowed from the instantaneous processes of the electrical age… specific meaning of the word is using drugs… three interrelated connotations: (1) to give or have one’s first drug experience–usually with marijuana; (2) to become high for the first time–with marijuana; (3) to use a drug–usually marijuana”(Erich Goode, Ch.6 - Turning On: Becoming a Marijuana User, THE MARIJUANA SMOKERS). nough said.
