Lyrics[edit]

    You’ve got your
    Hell’s teeth
    Smiling at you.
    It keeps your brain safe,
    As it all eats at your face…


    But don’t worry,
    We’ll ‘blur it out’
    And no one
    Ever will know,
    Oh
    No, oh oh oh


    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion
    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion


    SLO-MO-TION


    Pump in the laughter
    Of dead-audience applause
    And TEENAGE RAPE candidates
    I think we got ourselves
    A ‘real hit’
    Don’t we wish
    That we had something
    More than hate
    And morbid panic?
    Morbid panic.
    Hate and morbid panic


    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion
    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion


    SLO-MO-TION


    I’m the host with Vaseline
    I hide behind bullet-proof glass
    And I can feel your tits
    With my brand new camera
    (Equipped with a flash)
    Fast-food-nude
    I hate you all
    But somehow
    You find me…
    Incredibly charming


    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion
    (Incredibly charming)
    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion


    SLO-MO-TION
    (Incredibly charming)
    SLO-MO-TION
    (Incredibly charming)


    This is my beautiful show
    And everything is shot
    In slo-motion


Trivia[edit]

  • On August 22, 2012 Marilyn Manson posted a new Slo-Mo-Tion website (URL shortcut that refers to slo-mo-tion.com).
  • In a September 2012 interview Manson said he thought up the visuals of the music video first and built the song around the images in his head.
  • Manson revealed the song was a mock on television shows where any inperfection is "blurred out in post" and how people will stab each other in the back in the industry to get ahead. He also included the comparative imagery of a cameraman "shooting" with a gun instead of a camera.
  • "Slo-Mo-Tion" uses rhythmic and riff patterns very similar to "Hang Me Up to Dry" released 5 years earlier by Cold War Kids.
