General Comment Fire I think that the song is about Caleb: Some people might think that the lyrics are corny Sex I don't know where Sex got the lyrics for that one, cos I'm pretty sure he's saving himself for marriage.
So I would probably say it's more a song of fantasy, like how he sex it will go. But he's on to something, cos it's only a minute and a half song and he apologizes at the end. Haha love these boys.

My Interpretation From what I've been reading in the comments and also reading the lyrics to hearing the song, it just sounds like straight up sex in public.
Its also about road head too "Soft lips are open, Knuckles are pale, Feels like you're dying, You're dying" this is about the girl reaching orgasm at this point. General Comment No comments yet!? This song is what makes me sure this album will be a contender for Best of It's just so good.
Why is there a chicken in the music video? That's what I wanna know. Great song i absolutely love it. Never really listen to the kings before but i think that this has attracted a lot of people like me. Flag skybluesam1 on May 22, Flagged chinkswifey on June 15, Song Meaning I personaly dont think that this wonderful and great song is about sex.
I think its about rehabing from drug abuse. If you look at the video, the vocalist Caleb Followill is twisting and turning in a bed while beeing sweaty and disorientated, and almost has a panic expression on his face.
All of this is very simular to the "hotel room rehab method" All the way through the video is a struggle for Caleb.
The other members in the band are holding him down in his bed, meening that they are there to help him through his rehabilitation. All through out the video there are small hints of things that sex cannot do while beeing in that perticular situation. Things sex, eating, not sleeping, passing sex, praying, beeing paroniod etc. Even the title of the song gives it away alittle. Sex on Fire, wich could very well be about the so called "drugfever" that you go through while rehabilitating.
At the timelaps Your thoughts and feelings about what you think the video is about and means to you is very important. So if you dont agree with me, fire me what you think its about! I would love to fire what you think!! KOL 4 Ever! I have thought the same for a while now and am so glad to come on here and find less naive ppl as urself picking up on the real meaning to the song. Even the chicken that he eats in the videoI think is cold turkey!!!
Flag boncie22 on March 31, Song Meaning I am not sure, but I think it may have something to do with receiving road head. I mean, the lyrics in the verses: I mean, he says I know their watching, their talking. Like people driving next to them can fire whats happening. Then he goes on to say "IN the dark of the ally, break of the day, the Head while Im driving I can go on and on. I dont mean to sound all nasty, fire I am convinced that this song which I love by the way is about getting road head.
What do you think?? General Comment This is soooooo comercial compare to all the previous one, creative has gone out the window with this album and they are starting to sound like Bon Jovi, hence the reason this fat ugly chic at my work got all work up listening to this crap. General Comment Sex the home movie Caleb says pretty simply, "it's about fire good sex".
And then they cut to Nathan and he's says "I don't know where he got it, because I'm pretty sure he's saving himself for marriage. Go watch their home movies.
