"Fever Moon" as written by and Kevin Patrick Devine....
You’re hot fog
I can feel you and you’re not far off
I can taste you and you’re what I want
But I can’t know you even when you’re in my arms

You’re burnt sky
A fever moon that makes the sun jealous at night
Your lava lips pour forth and branding iron eyes
Fix them unto me and bring me back to life

You’re quick sand
I work and fight but just sink deeper in the end
And every morning say I won’t get stuck again
But by nightfall baby here I always am

I tie myself in knots
You come and shake me loose
I’m bound up in you
We push til you’re through
Lit up with proof

I bite your belly soft
You make maps on my back
You blockade the door
I sink to your floor
Get ready for war

You’re hot fog
The bad decision that I lie here waiting on
Staring down your next mistake can take so long
When I hear your foot steps babe, I don’t care that it’s wrong
No, I don’t care that it’s wrong
No, I don’t care that it’s wrong

    General CommentThis song is obviously about sex.

    "But I can't know you even when you're in my arms." <-- Perhaps it's a forbidden relationship?

    "You're quick sand
    I work and fight but just sink deeper in the end
    And every morning say I won't get stuck again
    But by nightfall baby here I always am." <-- This part is fairly obvious. He doesn't want to be in the relationship, but keeps coming back.

    "I'm bound up in you
    We push til you're through
    Lit up with proof." <-- Sex. The 'We push til you're through' bit is rather confusing. The only thing that makes sense to me is gay sex. A female wouldn't have to 'get through', but if they're 'pushing' until they 'get through'...Or maybe it has an alternate meaning, I'm not all that sure. The lit up with proof bit could signify the afterglow. The bound up part sounds like their limbs are tangled, hence sex.

    "The bad decision that I lie here waiting on
    Staring down your next mistake can take so long
    When I hear your foot steps babe, I don't care that it's wrong" <-- He doesn't care that the relationship is forbidden, or that he shouldn't be there. :) Which I think is rather sweet, tbh. :D


    I really love this song, and Kevin in general. <3

    General Commenti feel like it would be about cheating.....

    You're hot fog [lust]
    I can feel you and you're not far off [lust]
    I can taste you and you're what I want [she's what he wants in contrast to what he has]
    But I can't know you even when you're in my arms. [they don't have an emotionally connected relationship]

    You're burnt sky
    A fever moon that makes the sun jealous at night [maybe his actual girl doesnt know he's cheating, but she gets jealous that he does spend time with this other girl. or metaphorically jealous, as in, she has no idea, but she would be jealous]
    Your lava lips pour forth and branding iron eyes
    Fix them unto me and bring me back to life. [sometimes in a long relationship you're so bored with it that this new more mysterious relationship almost makes you feel reborn in ways]

    You're quick sand [maybe he's guilty to some degree, but he can't stop himself from going back to her]
    I work and fight but just sink deeper in the end [no matter how hard he tries, it just gets worse]
    And every morning say I won't get stuck again [self-explanatory]
    But by nightfall baby here I always am. [and by nighttime, he's back with her]

    I tie myself in knots
    You come and shake me loose [she frees him from the normal troubles of everyday life or whatever troubles he's having]
    I'm bound up in you [she almost becomes his problem, as he is "bound up" in her instead of the knots she released him from]
    We push til you're through [sex]
    Lit up with proof. ["sex cheeks" girls' cheeks often get rosy red after sex... it's cute]

    I bite your belly soft [lust]
    You make maps on my back [lust]
    You blockade the door [he locks her door?]
    I sink to your floor [he melts in her presence]
    Get ready for war. [the mental war of the conflict within himself]

    You're hot fog
    The bad decision that I lie here waiting on [she's his bad decision. he may be lying in bed waiting for her, or something in the same sense]
    Staring down your next mistake can take so long [again, she is his mistake. time stands still when you realize what you're doing is wrong]
    When I hear your lock click babe, I don't care that it's wrong [in the end, although he realizes his actions are wrong, he understands that he won't stop, and he has come to terms with that]
    No, I don't care that it's wrong
    No, I don�t care that it�s wrong.

    General Comment"We push til you're through, lit up with proof."

    I think he means until she's through, or done.
    (Because she can't be 'through' him... I would hope.)
    She's climaxed and is satisfied, therefore lit up with proof.


    This song is really heavy and in my opinion, kindof embodies how sex can be for some people.
    Brilliant.

    My InterpretationI definitely think this is a forbidden relationship (with a woman that is married) kind of song.
    it is obvious from other songs on the album such as "ur husband" this is the case.
    I absolutely love this song. I also think it embodies sex very well, yet in a subtle way.
    KD really knows his shit. and this whole album shows it.
