Riff Raff sings:

I remember doing the Time Warp
Drinking those moments when
The blackness would hit me
And the void would be calling

I've always interpreted this as Riff Raff drinking, savouring, the moments. But it occurred to me that it could also mean that he was drinking during those moments. Less poetic and a bit more alcoholic.

So which interpretation is correct? Or was he perhaps literally drinking the moments? He is, after all, a Transsexual Transylvanian.

    ... and perhaps the blackness literally crept up behind him and physically struck him while he was distracted with a very audible call from the void. – Jeeped Jun 12 '16 at 21:42

    We see him swilling champagne straight from the bottle as he gets into the elevator, but I would be shocked to hear that "drinking" means anything other than "absorbing" in the lyrics to Time Warp. – Wad Cheber Jun 13 '16 at 6:17
  • I always interpreted it as Riff being drinking during the time warp and collapsing because of that... But I may be a little alcoholic myself ^^ – max pnj Jun 13 '16 at 15:49
