"Fast Blood" as written by and Grant David Hutchison David Kennedy....
Good night
It's summer time
Let's get paralyzed down both sides
Sneaking to red sleeping kiss
And your black eyes
Over
Midnight organ fight
Yours gets into mine
It's all right
And the fast blood
Hurricanes through me
And then it rips my roof away with her fire heads
This is the longest kiss
Good night

Oh,

And now I, I tremble,
Because this stumble
Has become miracle
I feel like I just died twice
Was reborn again
For all our dirty sins
And the fast blood, fast blood, fast blood
Hurricanes through me
And then it rips my roof away with her fire heads
This is the longest kiss
Good night
Good night
And then I fall down
I stumble
And she said, good night

    General CommentSaying it's just about a kiss is taking "the longest kiss goodnight" a bit too literally, IMO. The midnight organ fight, this fumble that has become biblical, the feeling like he died twice (reference to the "petit mort", IMO) is all illustrating very pasionate sex.

    Btw: I hear "red sleepy kiss", instead of "red city kiss". Anyone else?

    General CommentThis is probably my all time favourite song by one of my all time favourite bands. The one thing I love about Frightened Rabbit lyrics is the pure honesty. Songs like 'Keep Yourself Warm' and 'Twist' are written from the heart and I defy any man not to identify with them. This also makes Fast Blood a bit of a tricky one to make out. Is this just about a kiss or is it about sex? Which organs are fighting - is it the heart or the genitals? This song really can be read two ways. Maybe I'm a bit of a romamntic but I think it's about a first kiss goodnight and the emotions and adrenaline (fast blood?) that happen when you first kiss someone you really like. Then again if you've just listened to 'Keep Yourself Warm' maybe this song is purely about having sex. I hope not though as that would ruin it for me!

    General Comment'Midnight Organ Fight' is a euphanism for sexual intercourse; obviously the song is about sex.
    Personally, I agree with ninacrux, I think that the song is about having sex with an ex-girlfriend, enjoying it at the time and regretting it afterwards.

    General CommentStraight from the source, you wankers:


    "The title has a couple of possible meanings, but the main one is a euphemism for sex, as it’s in the song Fast Blood, which is essentially about fucking... I didn't realise i was so drawn to physical and biological imagery until I put the whole record together. I feel like heartache is very physically painful, in lots of ways, so it seems natural to gravitate that way."

    General Commentpretty sure that it's biblical instead of miracle.
    "because this stumble has become biblical."
    also it's your hips into mine, as the song is def about boom boom.

    General Commentsnake hipped rather than sneaking to red?
    black eyes 'roll back'?
    yours gives into mine?
    definitely 'biblical' rather than miracle

    General CommentI'm pretty sure its 'because this fumble has become biblical' because what the hells a stumble apart from when you slightly trip, you know? whereas a fumble's a little bit of 'boom boom' as bjonmon would call it.

    General CommentPretty sure that first line is "Good night, it's show time."

    This song is definitely about sex, but I think it's also more complicated with that.

    To me, it's about how you're tortured with sexual thoughts of someone who you love after you break up.

    Could also be about having sex with an ex and being confused about it.
