This is killing me since the day he said it was hyphenated. I could only connect it to per-so-phony in some way, but just how the way it is written. Not in any logical sense. Anyone has thoughts about it? We didn't see a insightful track-by-track interview yet, many question marks flying around the record.

Because it forces you to say the title slower than you would if there were no hyphens.

What about the 'W' missing in 'Slow'?

It becomes ironic to abbreviate it to "slo-mo" only to add the "tion" back anyway.

It's not aesthetically pleasing to keep the W in the title.
Eg. "Blue Ray = Blu Ray"

Yup, dropping the "w" in "slow" isn't new.

So it has to be pronounced in slo-mo-tion?

I thought it was a joke when he first announced this title.

he also sings it this way, having a brief moment of silence after each syllable.

slo mo is another derogatory way of calling someone retarded. The tion is Manson's a way of saying pay attention you morons. j/k Let me tell you this.................................... spell it out for you............................................... .. the song is slow so the spelling is also spelled slo.

Slo-Mo-Tion is about his fans. He is calling us slow. And it is not rape per-so-phony, it is rape her-so-phony. Point made. Welcome to High ed of Slow 1-0-1.

Just a blind guess. I think this song's lyrics have something to do with Columbine and other shootings Manson was indirectly blamed for. The gun reference is obvious. Some fans complained about 'the brand new camera equipped with a flash' part. I assume he talks about a gun shot. When shooting, it's like a camera flashing.

He cleverly linked it to movies/photography. Even if he says the new album has nothing to do with his romantic relationships, this song might also be linked to this theme in a way. That's why 'tits' are there :).

Like everyone else said it's just about pronouncing it in slow motion just like he sings it. It's pretentious to a degree and I almost never type it with hyphens because I don't give a fuck, personally, but yeah, that's why he wrote it that way. There's really no deep meaning behind it.

^ and yet despite the fact we all pretend not to give a fuck, here we are time after time thread after thread dissecting every word and nuance in postings and in the chat forum.

Wouldn't that be Slo-Wit-Ted?
