Spitfire is the tenth song on the album A Million Degrees by Emigrate.

Background

  • The song existed since the recording of Silent So Long. At 00:06 of the first teaser video Richard can be seen holding a paper up, which shows the song title "Spitfire".
Screenshot
  • Richard tried to get Iggy Pop to sing on the song, but he was not able to, as he was dealing with water damage in his house.[1]
  • In a track-by-track interview with Kerrang!, Richard said the following about the song:[2]

This is another old song that had more of a punky vibe that I brought some electronics into. I originally thought of having Iggy Pop to sing, unfortunately he had a lot of water damage at his place at the exact time I was having the same problem in Berlin and couldn’t do it. But I was really thinking of him when I made this song. Anyways, it didn’t happen, so now everyone will just have to live with my voice (laughs).

Lyrics

Album version

I'm clouds of revolution
I am the storm in grey
I rule over the nations
I will inseminate

Time has no hands to hold me
No time's no fan of god
Tied up and sitting pretty
Tied up and counting scars

All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now (Spitfire)
All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now (Spitfire)

Stole my mind from pollution
Stole my mind from the day
Stole lives like I'm a handgun
I stole them all away

All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now (Spitfire)
All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now

All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now (Spitfire)
All I've been thinking of (Spitfire)
All in the name of love, now (Spitfire)
