FIRE IN MY HEART – Track 10

* This post is a bit delayed, there was a “fire in my bong” last night.

The inspiration for “Fire In My Heart” belongs to one man: Glenn Danzig. I was a teenage witch with a crush on all things Danzig. My obsession began with the Misfits, crept into Samhain and went full-blown psycho with the release of Danzig, Danzig II: Lucifuge & Danzig III: How The Gods Kill. His music videos featuring hot nefarious sluts blew my mind, I wanted to look and move like them. I wanted to be one of Danzig’s black witches. I felt the same way all boys did watching “She Rides.” Except I had a clitboner.

Huntress was on a plane flying to Download Festival in 2014 when I wrote the chorus. Once again, I was in the rest room songwriting (the same way I started writing “Static”). Afterwards, I ran over to Blake Meahl’s seat with a recording that I had sang into my phone.

The music for “Fire In My Heart” was made for dancin’. I thought about what I’d like to hear as a hormonal witchcraft-crazed 17 year old girl; a song that would be ideal for hairbrush microphone bedroom shows. This is that song.

Fun fact: Huntress toured with Danzig on his 25th Anniversary tour in 2013. I didn’t fan girl him. But I did watch every show from the wings. And one night, he looked at me from stage, pointed and said “You.” I did the over the shoulder “Who? Me?” My band mates pushed me out on stage and  Glenn asked me to sing “Skulls” with him. I did. I can die now. The end.

“Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart”


Fire In My Heart

Danger runs all through my blood, oh yeah
Trouble owns all my bones, yeah, got it bad
Ooo, can’t you see the fire lives in me?

Gonna mainline rage into your veins
I’m gonna give you a lethal dose of pain

Come on and get it
Scorching the night
Ooo, you wanna get lit? Yeah!

Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart

Be forewarned of the blaze that lays with me
Raising hell to get off, yeah, I’m in heat
Ooo, can’t you feel the fire deep in me?

Overdose with ghost who haunts your dreams
Suffocate in the warmth of eternity

Walk with the witches
Blazing the night
Ooo, smoke out those bitches, yeah!

Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart

Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart

Burn, burn, burn, burn
Oh yeah, Fire!

Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart

Burning for your black art
In flames forever higher
I’ve got the Fire In My Heart

Fire, Fire, Fire In My Heart
Fire, Fire, Fire In My Heart
