Love and Rockets’ goth-influenced, grinding guitar-filled “Motorcycle” is unabashedly from end-to-end about a rider’s feelings about bikes and riding. Don’t look for any meaning beneath the lyrics. The song, at its most introspective point, merely says:
I feel warm inside On the motorbike The wind is all around On the motorbike We are free
Since riding appeals to our brain-stem levels of functioning, does anything else really need to be said?
