Hedonism

I want more
Amplify my desire
Show me more
And I will walk through the fire
Cause I need you so badly that I go insane
Got me howling with the fury of a hurricane
For a little taste of danger
Pretty danger

My heart’s racing so fast
The night’s falling so slow
Your movement turns my words to silence
Don’t accept the guilt
Darling let it go
Don’t you wanna know the horizon?

On the run
Seeking each earthly pleasure
Come undone
In the warmth of my arms
We will push to the limits
Go at breakneck speeds
Smoulder in the embers of forbidden needs
The breathless chase of hedonism baby

My heart’s racing so fast
The night’s falling so slow
Your movement turns my words to silence
Don’t accept the guilt
Darling let it go
Don’t you wanna know the horizon?

My heart’s racing so fast
The night’s falling so slow
Your movement turns my words to silence
Don’t accept the guilt
Darling let it go
Don’t you wanna know the horizon?

Song Notes

In a track by track breakdown of Kablammo! with culturecollide.com, the band had the following to say about the track:

Tim: Here we are with track number two of side two. One thing we thought when we were making this record was that we did want to put together sides. If we’re making an album, we may as well think in terms of that. So it was quite fun opening with the “Evel Knievel” instrumental on side two. Then we move onto “Hedonism”. It’s quite a 90s sounding guitar riff. We had it early on in the writing process for the album but it took a while to get the rest of the song to develop. We used to just play this riff round and round and round and we loved it. The lyrics kind of… I always have a bit of a fight inside myself between wanting to completely fuck off and do nothing, party and just have fun. But then, whenever I do that nothing gets done. So I have to be a very conscientious, hard working person most of the time! And I’m a very slow worker. So I always have a bit of a fight between wanting to let loose and working hard. “Hedonism” is kinda like a throwback to our earlier days when we used to get a lot crazier. Especially the dangerous brothers either side of me.

Rick: Now we’re parents.

Tim: I think there’s still a bit of a hedonistic spirit in you guys. We definitely had our share of crazy times.
