"Bushfire" as written by and Kate/schneider Pierson....
On the horizon, the landscape's burning red.
Bushfire. Smoke in your eyes, smoke in your eyes.
If you feel something, that makes you warm all over,
If you got a fire and you can't put it out, got a bushfire.

Rolling through a field of molten flowers;
Burning in a field of molten flowers.
There's a bushfire, there's a bushfire burning, yeah.

Bushfire! Bushfire! Bushfire!

My mind's been going places without me lately.
I need your arms to take me down, take me to the ground.
But I hold back! Get away from the heat.
Hold back! In my field of vision.
Hold back! Baby burning, fire.

Fire in a field of molten flowers,
Fire in a field of molten flowers.
There's a bushfire burning, yeah.
You better hold back! Hold back!

Bushfire! Bushfire! Bushfire!

Well I'm movin' to the beat of a big bushfire.
I'm dancin' to the beat of a big bushfire,
And the flames are warm and getting brighter.

Well everybody loves to dance around the heat and fire
Oh, lightnin' strike twice.
Hey everybody, bask in the afterglow. Bushfire!
Naked light shining over my bed, been lying here too long.
I need your arms to take me down, take me to the ground.

But I hold back. Get away from the heat!
Hold back! In my field of vision.
Hold back! I see smoke, smoke in your eyes.

Bushfire! Bushfire! Bushfire!
The landscape's burning, red hot!

    My InterpretationThis is totally about cunnilingus. Her bush is burning hot with need. The "smoke" (maybe scent) is in his eyes as his face gets up close and personal. Makes her feel warm all over, as they lay on the ground/bed, her hips dancing. Hold back, don't cum yet. Lighting strikes twice. Then basking in the afterglow. A bit ironic for Fred to be singing, since he's gay.

    My InterpretationThis song is about female sexual excitation. And she likes it when you get eye-level with the bush.

    General Commenti think this song is about a guy who's addicted to drugs (the fire) and he's been taking them with a bunch of friends ("everybody loves to dance around the heat and fire"). He can see that it's not good for him though ("been lying here too long) and needs his girlfriend to help him break his addiction ("i need your arms to take me down"). i might be totally off though, all you b-52s fans know how few of their songs actually have really deep underlying messages.

    General CommentI really don't think it has anything to do with drugs or a girlfriend... that doesn't sound like the B-52's at all... it probably is more sexual, I'm not too sure but the first one just doesn't match anything that I know about the B-52's... just saying...

    General CommentI think this song is political and about the Bush Presidential dynasty that was being created when it was written. Like the first comment only add GW Bush as the drug addict.... Just a thought..

    My InterpretationThis song is about smoking weed. Bush represents mj and the fire is what it looks like when lit, as in a joint. It makes you feel warm all over, the fields of molten flowers, mind going places lately without me, hold back (hitting it too hard)...all of this has an obvious reference to smoking joints. I can’t stand weed and this song stands out as a weed smoking celebration. Junebug makes references to smoking joints as well.
