Default "I'M ON FIRE"

Someone at left a comment about Springsteen's song, "I'm on Fire."

He/she wonders if they're interpreting it wrong. They say it sounds dark and a little disturbing.

You're not interpreting it wrong. The song is about incest and pedophilia.

To say it is a little disturbing is an understatement.

Springsteen sings countless times about his lust and desire for "little girls" throughout his catalog of songs. For instance, the song, "I'm on the Prowl for a Wild Child."

I'm on Fire
Bruce Springsteen

Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go and leave you all alone, un huh
I got a bad desire
Oh, Oh, Oh, I'm on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do, un huh
I can take you higher
Oh, Oh, Oh, I'm on fire

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my skull

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
and a freight train running through the
middle of my head
And you, you cool my desire
Oh, oh, oh Iím on fire
Oh, oh, oh Iím on fire
Oh, oh, oh Iím on fire
Ohhh hooo hooo
ohhho whooo


This song is about incest and pedophilia. Springsteen and the father of the little girl both being pedophiles.

Obviously, Springsteen knows the "little girl" has an incestuous relationship with her father, but, being the pedophile that he is, he wants to know if her father can do the things to her that he can do because he can take her higher.


The fact that he knows the "little girl's" father has left her all alone is very frightening.
