"This Fire" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Eyes
Boring a way through me
Paralyse
Controlling completely
Now
There is a fire in me
Fire that burns
Fire that burns

This fire is out of control
I'm going to burn this city
Burn this city
If this fire is out of control
Then I
I'm out of control
and I burn

Eyes
Burning a way to me
Overwhelm
Destroying so sweeetly
Now
There is a fire in me
Fire that burns
Fire that burns

This fire...

    General Commentit probably has a deeper meaning, but the "fire" could be piracy, and the refrain really sounds like, "we're gonna burn this CD"

    General CommentThe music video for this song is the greatest thing I've ever seen.

    At least now I don't have to go through the efforts of becoming a brilliant indie rockstar so that I could make this video. Franz Ferdinand has already done it for me.

    General CommentThere's such imagery in the video. They've got that part where the band turns into a Nuremberg rally. The vampiristic stuff. Hypnosis. Mailing letters, all seeming like part of a scheme of theirs. What are they up to?

    Taken alone, it could be about a very passionate love for someone... but one that could burn a city? Pretty pwoerful stuff, that. Really, this song could be about so many things. Where "Dark of the Matinee" is fun because it's simple, this is cool because it isn't.
