Electric Light
Infernal Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

People tell me I'm far too obsessed but they don't
Understand how it feels to be me and I won't
Be told by others what I shouldn't like
I just feel right when I let myself go
It can feel me with pride and excitement inside
Such a thrill to be filled with the joy and delight
How could anyone not feel the same?
Oh, they don't see...

That there is something on my mind
It is a world they leave behind
And it will always draw me closer
I want electric light
That flashes away
I want my heels sky high
I can't run away
And I say uhh, ahh and baby come play
And I know just why I wanna stay
'Cause on a disco night everything is all right

All the time I pretend to be into something
That I don't really like or connect with at all
Just to please someone's credible mind
But that ain't me
'Cause in my heart I'm someone else
And it's been true since I was twelve




And baby now I'm singing my song.
I want electric light...

Overall Meaning

The song Electric Light by Infernal is a celebration of individuality and self-expression. The singer asserts their right to like what they like, regardless of what others may think. The lyrics express a feeling of liberation that comes from letting oneself go and indulging in what brings joy and excitement. The reference to "electric light" can be interpreted as a metaphor for the positive energy and inspiration that one feels when fully embracing their true self.


The line "All the time I pretend to be into something that I don't really like or connect with at all" reveals the pressure that some people feel to conform to the expectations of others. Whether it's a social clique, a cultural norm, or a societal trend, the fear of being rejected or judged can lead people to hide their true selves. However, the singer rejects this notion and instead embraces their authentic self, declaring "That ain't me / 'Cause in my heart I'm someone else."


The chorus of the song reinforces the message of self-expression and the power of music to unite people. The lyrics "I want electric light / That flashes away / I want my heels sky high / I can't run away / And I say uhh, ahh and baby come play / And I know just why I wanna stay / 'Cause on a disco night everything is all right" evoke a sense of freedom and abandon that comes with letting go and dancing the night away. The repetition of "uhh" and "ahh" creates a sense of unity and shared experience, as if the singer is inviting everyone to let loose and join in the fun.
