Fascination Street Lyrics

Oh it’s opening time
Down on fascination street
So let’s cut the conversation
And get out for a bit
Because I feel it all fading and paling
And I’m begging to drag you down with me
To kick the last nail in
Yeah I like you in that like I...

    The song is about a wild night on bourbon street in New Orleans, drinking too much & up chucking. Truth be told.

    Yes, blowjobs. But the lyrics that have me a little mystified is..."If you slip going under sailing over my shoulder" . It must have been a wild mardi gras blowjob!

    From a psychological viewpoint I find these lyrics very interesting. to me opening time down on fascination street could be the characters resignation of someone fucking with him or picking him apart.

    Well, it was definitely written by Robert to capture the whole feeling he had in New Orleans. I use it to keep my mind open when heading into a new situation.
