"Children In Heat" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
Children in heat
They have no conscience
No resistance
You gotta see this big reaction
No resistance

Cellophane sex, a new way of life
With your heart in your throat
And the other alive
You've been pissin', pissin' blood
Pissin' blood for seven days

No resistance
No resistance
No resistance

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they're away and away
They're always gonna run away

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they're running away

Children in heat
Are young little kindle wood
I see them burning
They all changed their names to Chicago

No resistance
No resistance
No resistance

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they'm running away

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they're running away and away
They're always gonna run away

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they're running away and away
They're always gonna run away

Children in heat
You can't control them
Why they're running away

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song is based on the fact that this song was usually recorded and played live as a medley with "Teenagers from Mars".
    As "Teenagers" is about aliens impregnating adolescent girls, I believe this song is about the aftermath of the latter incident, with the mating partners of the martians reacting strangely. The line, "With your heart in your throat/And the other alive", could be referring to the children giving birth to the inhuman offspring orally, and possibly dying.

    General CommentHaha, one of my fave misfits songs. I don't know why, it just is. It's definitely about rebellious children. Although, bfk's explanation also sounds good...as we know the misfits based alot of the lyrics around b-grade horror movies and such.

    General Commenti definitely agree with bfk, but one point that i haven't seen is that it seems they are reffering to a period (Pissing blood for 7 days) but yeah i think it's like when kids are in shit so they are rebelling. I love this song, because, to me it is sorta like a transition from the cool vibe they had to the horror punk sound they adopted later on.

    General CommentCellophane sex?

    Cellophane is a thin, flexible, cellulose material that's used as a moisture proof wrapping

    So what the fuck does that mean?

    General CommentHaving sex through moisture proof cellophane wouldn't be very pleasing, now would it? The same goes for teenage sex (especially for young women).
