Fire to Your Plain

Sunday 14 August 2011, by Cécile Desbrun

In “Fire to Your Plain,” the narrator discovers her man’s infidelity and ‘goes on a mission’ to try and save their relationship before the bold and seductive mistress destroys everything. The lyrics play with aviation and automobile vocabulary (“plain”/”plane”, “SAT NAV”), as if we were in a spy or action movie and that the narrator went after the plane of the mistress to track them down.
