We are climbing
Into her veins
The fire flames
Norine Braun's official lyric explanation
There is a duality in the lyrics of Fire Flames. It does come across as a song about sexual betrayal. But, for me, it’s about betrayal even deeper. It’s a betrayal of the body, it’s how could my body do something that I don’t want it to and how do you reconcile not being the master of your domain, if you will.
So, it does use the parallel to a sexual betrayal, but it’s also the betrayal of the body and what that feels like.
