"(We Were) Electrocute" is a track of the Type O Negative album Life Is Killing Me, released in 2003. It features 60s Beatles-like psychedelia with keyboards. The static noise from the speakers is heard in the very beginning of this track, while static noise from the microphone is heard at the very end. The lyrics reflects on how Peter felt stunned from being separated from his girlfriend, and how they would attract the interest of passers-by when he was out with his ex.
[Incomprehensible] We were electrocute In our has-been 1980's suits So electrocute Everyone we knew said it was true That's when even strangers knew our names Ten years later sighed "what a shame" [Incomprehensible] We were electrocute To make the point again is moot Ssssssso electrocute How on you I've wasted my youth Your cold eyes of Coney Island sand Hair dyed the blood of a foolish man So proud to be by your side We were a team no one denied Even though I still miss your lips You're about as real as your tits [Incomprehensible]
