about

There is a preponderance of red/Fire females in my life: in gods, archetypes, fiction, and friends. Considering how strongly Water I myself am, this may seem odd, but complements attract, right? It was certainly worth a song.

lyrics

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

strong bodies and strong bones
do not need a pretty face
(though some have one anyway)

sharp teeth and sharp talons
do not need a pretty dress
(though some have one anyway)

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

my ladies are ladies
of the blade, of the desert,
queens of the violent jungle

my ladies aren’t ladies
of the court, of the bedroom,
of the kitchen and garden

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

pale cheeks sprayed with fresh blood
and snarling lips stained with soot
women of fire, red souls

firm hands grasping sword hilts
or paws baring steely claws
women of fire, red souls

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers

follow the red women,
bloody fur and crimson fire,
deadly warrior-mothers
