"All Fired Up" as written by and Samuel Fogarino Carlos Dengler....
I dream of you draped in wires and leaning on the brakes
As I lead you with restless liars and dealers on the take
And I can read you like a gumshoe; watch this meeting hall sweat and shake

I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you all on

I'll take you on
Oh, I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you on

I haven't struck you with desire, fault line, no crutch, no stall
And I can bind you with no ties or leash and watch you fall

See, I got this soul
It's all fired up
This soul, I got this soul
It's all fired up
This soul - it's all fired up
It's all fired up
It's all fired up
It's all fired up

I teach you of Death's desires reflected in lakes
As I lead you in a fearful file to a precipice of fate
And I welcome you, I welcome your sweethearts that bleed and break

I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you on
I'll take you all on
I'll take you on when your, your will is gone
I'll take you on
I'll take you on

I haven't struck you with desire, fault line, no crutch, no stall
And I can bind you with no ties or lease time and watch you fall

See, I've got this soul
It's all fired up
This soul
I've got this soul
It's all fired up
This soul
It's all fired up
It's all fired up
It's all fired up
It's all fired up
You're all mine

You're all mine
You're all mine
You're all mine
You're all mine
You're all mine

    General Commenttrent reznor and paul should team up to do a song reminiscent of closer.

    paul's songs are infused with a sense of festering sexual frusteration. his lyrics are so ambiguous yet somehow lead your mind to places that just make your boy/girl parts tingle.

    interpol truly knows how to undress/fondle/even rape with their words.

    Song MeaningThis one is easy when you're going through the exact same situation and feeling Mr. Banks is trying to invoke with his song:

    It is about a guy and a girl (duh), the guy has been in love with this girl for a long time and he's already fed up with the girl not even considering him as an option for her. His attempts were feeble and weak because he was in love and stupid.

    Now the guy is pissed
    <"I dream of you draped in wires
    And leaning on the brakes">

    He's so pissed that she didnt see his real value; now his love actually turned into hatred, he's just looking to destroy her by showing presenting her to the wrong dudes and giving her bad advice
    <"As I lead you with restless liars
    And dealers on the take">

    And also making her fall for him in the process
    <"I teach you of death's desires
    Reflected in lakes
    As I lead you in a fearful file to a precipice of fate">

    He's tired of putting so much effort into their relationship and seeing her talk to other dudes that are all crazy about her too, but he doesnt care about the dudes or the girl anymore, he wants revenge
    <"And I welcome you, I welcome your sweethearts that bleed and break">

    He is pure power now that he has fallen out of love, he's not inhibited anymore and can show her what a powerful sonofagun she missed out on.
    <"See, I got this soul
    It's all fired up">

    This song pumps me up every time I'm about to start the chess game that is courting.

    General CommentSongs seems to be about Death/Sin and the hold it has on mankind. It seems to be bragging of it's power and control over all men and that it can and will lead all off into destruction. Maybe it is the Devil singing? either way, great song, great lyrics and downright creepy.

    General CommentLOVE this song. anything that comes out of paul's mouth can be interpreted as sexual, even if it's not supposed to be. interpol makes you want it.

    General CommentThis is about the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ
    He made a huge impact on the World.
    His death has effected today's society.
    Regardless if we wish to not accept this or not.
    He taught us of death's desire (To live in after life).
    Nobody wants to just die and not live in an afterlife.
    He took us all on, after his crucifixion.
    His mysterious "resurrection" binded us down to this story.
    It's well alive today like a virus.
    The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
    Forever behind our minds. He fired up our souls.
