Scott Walker - Dealer Lyrics




The windows are ringing
shaking Night-nites for angels
rattling throats up and down on a beam.

Cooling the hearts
cooling the plasma
keeping ice junkies packed hard on a seam

The other side of a prowler
the dead still search the living.

At least there we did not not fail.

Coming to in the overcast
tracks are still flowing.

At least there he does not wail.

Psalms of your hands
sung into the lateness
move a circuit on the white
and he can't feel a thing.

Gone always alone to all you are never
he climbs into your mouth
when the windows ring.

The windows are ringing
shaking dead men for angels
Hissing brains boiling up
press't to the bone

uncoils the wire whole night long
bumping out thru the eye in knots.

Sweet hot numbers
sweet hots
bumping out thru the eye
on a wire of knots.

Sweet hot numbers
sweet hots
bumping out thru the eye
on a wire of knots.

Psalms of your hands
sung into the lateness
move a circuit on the white
and he can't feel a thing.

Gone always alone to all you are never
he climbs into your mouth
when the windows ring.

Scott Walker Dealer Comments
  1. Edward mulholland

    Wonderful, this is one of his best albums - but then again all The albums Where he had final say are The best. Sad knowing that he No longer walks The earth.

  2. John Anthony

    Absolutely brilliant album...so underated at release. Scott understood somuch about sound and music as it expresses human emotion and its relationship to our world. Music is the language of the universe, we only tapinto a small part of its spectrum. I love this. God bless Scott's resting soul.

  3. wellandtruly joshed

    Beautiful man beautiful voice ❤️ RIP Scott 💔 Outstanding creator of sound - we’re still listening 😢👏

  4. Philip Mayer

    R.I.P. Noel Scott Engel.

  5. Dream Punk Radio

    First rest in peace comment? Me? Really... your local friendly dream
    punk ? Just me...? I'm so sad knowing he is gone ... wish more people
    blasted scott at random shops and restaurants across the nation... and
    hip hop clubs... we need more scott in the trapp scene... just in
    between Cardi B and Post Malone... it would be so cool...

  6. Brian o'toole

    I've only discovered Scott Walker, thru David Bowie's cover of Nite Flight, the influence is so apparent. Surprised myself with how many tunes from The Walker Brothers I knew. The avent garde is an acquired ear. I can't get enough of The Electrician thou....and RIP only a week or two ago. Sad he's not more known/acknowledged. Let the research continue.

  7. Voice Of The Firmament

    Scott Walker is the god David Bowie prayed to.

    tapsa nelikettu

    Have you heard "A small plot of land" ? :D

  8. Josef Huntington

    I'm going to miss you so fucking much.

  9. Chris Rust

    I missed Scott Walker somehow. I just remember the very early Walker Brothers stuff.

    This is very interesting and great to hear him doing such original work.
    But it's a strange Marmite experience because all through this and the other tracks I've listened to today 'that voice' just dominates the whole thing and his voice and delivery seem to leave no space for nuance and personal expression. It's like he's on a podium all the time, somewhere above being godlike. The opposite of Leonard Cohen who is right there in the room with you.

    Ah well, RIP Scott, and thanks, sorry I didn't pay more attention before.

    Mo Foster on bass, which played greatly on Nite Flights too
    Evan Parker on soprano sax and Mark Isham on trumpet

  11. ruivog

    Absolute n.º 1. Death cannot change that.

  12. DocThunderfoot

    Climate of Hunter got me when it came out (I was 16 back then) and it still has me. Still amazes me every time I listen to it. And still there's nothting that sounds like it (and the following albums). Complete unique art and artist.

    vKezii

    DocThunderfoot Bowie on Blackstar is in some respects. Its similar to Hunter’s.... similar vocal delivery perhaps ? Both ab brill records..

    Edward mulholland

    ”Climate of Hunter” is still underrated even today. ”Scott 5” in all but name.

  13. Simon Hodgetts

    It’s a pity that it needs Scott’s death to bring this to my attention...........reminds me of early The Blue Nile.......lovely bass playing!

    Annika Holland

    totally hear the Blue Nile thing, wow

    Edward Escobar

    I feel the same way. How did this guy go so neglected and unrecognized?

    Neurodisco77

    Mo Foster on bass, which played greatly on Nite Flights too

  14. peterc2000

    It is not as bad as Trout Mask Replica.

    Matthew Haigh

    that's for sure. the Commercial album too.

  15. elchocho008

    i love it, it has a blade runner vibe specially with the sax synth.

    Yoni Silver

    Mianbao that’s actually a real soprano sax! :-)

    markkeogh18

    Evan Parker?

    Yoni Silver

    markkeogh18 yep!

    Neurodisco77

    @Yoni Silver He's right about the Blade Runner feel though

  16. Rob Jones

    Bought this album in 1984, and thought it was utterly fantastic.

    Apparently it was the lowest selling record on the Virgin label, and he was dropped
    by the record company soon afterwards. Hearing again thirty four years later,
    it is clearly the spiritual father of Bowie's "The Next Day" and "Blackstar".
    David had covered Scott's "Nite Flights" in the 1990s.
    He also covered "My Death" and "Amsterdam" at the height of his Ziggy period,
    which Scott had previously sang.

    MisAnnThorpe

    I'm well aware of Walker's influence on Bowie but can't see any obvious connection between Climate of Hunter and Blackstar, other than the jazziness of some of the playing on this track. This is however, very similar in atmosphere to Heat from The Next day; which is probably the best track from a very overrated but decent Bowie album. Blackstar to my mind, is worthy of inclusion amongst his best ever albums.

    MisAnnThorpe

    Btw, that can't be right about Climate of Hunter having been the worst selling record on the Virgin label. Don't know where you heard that from.

    Rob Jones

    @MisAnnThorpe It was mentioned in the
    July1985 edition of the NME, and was out
    of print for many years.

    DocThunderfoot

    @MisAnnThorpe So it says on Wikipedia...

    George Stacey

    Says a lot about things. Now here we are listening to an album that was considered an untouchable, so much beauty in some untouchables, and in this strange world now it's crowd comes calling to make contact with it's sound.

  17. Martin Martinez Gonzalez

    Sin duda un tema atmosférico y Relájate para el alma

  18. Matt Rouge

    Wow, this is brilliant!

  19. Susi Moore

    I love this track, fantastic vocals and fuzzy, slowed down base lines - similar in tone to some of the songs from The Labryinth - which Bowie composed a few years down the line.

  20. Leopoldo Vaz-Romero Sanchez

    Gran tema, de otra galaxia. Original.
