WHEN I'M ON FIRE

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Nope, us neither. Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

WHEN I'M ON FIRE (2020)

I know I'm wetter when it rains

I know I'm better with the pain

And when I stand and raise my hand
There is no god but where I am

And I know

When I'm on fire

Thoughts? :notworthy: :bat:

Is what it should say.

@Being645 . Is it my imagination, but I believe some of the Lyrics to the new songs have

disappeared from The Official Sisters Site? Nearly a whole new album of lyrics were available during lockdown last year?

No, nothing has disappeared from The Official Site.
Maybe you got the impression because a lot of the lyrics were elaborated on here (or whereever) ... :) ...

On first listen to When I'm on Fire, I thought I heard Von singing "Put your hands together" towards the end.

But on repeat listen, it's starting to sound more to me like he's singing "put your hand together" as in a hand of cards or a play of action?

Anyone else?

I did think it was odd, that's a lot more sense than I could make of it. Assumed it was The Mumble Supreme but that checks out

I think this song sounds great.

Just a thought, "wetter" is German for "weather".
