  • 2 Dr. Luther’s Assistant
  • 3 Ghost Train
  • 4 Just a Memory
  • Everything seems so tranquil
    Home movies with no subtitles
    Don't you wish you knew what they were sayin'
    When the film keeps playin', playin'

    Oh, he's Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll close in when he seems so distant
    Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll get on top of you when you lower your resistance

    Some say he is just a lackey
    Changing words while the ink is still tacky
    He's absolutely indispensable
    He keeps the other boys in suspense

    Oh, he's Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll close in when he seems so distant
    Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll get on top of you when you lower your resistance

    Luther is locked in a broken-down cinema
    Watches his wife with his video camera
    Sees his best boy makin' her grin
    Out of the kitchen, she's gone with the wind

    Oh, Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll close in, when he seems so distant
    Doctor Luther's assistant
    He'll get on top of you when you lower your resistance
