This song seems to be about drug use and overdosing, and dying, and being revived. It is disputed by those there of how all this happened.

The lyrics also mention other things that get your adrenaline going for a thrill, these being fast cars, or motorcycle racing, skydiving, a beautiful woman, or even playing their music on stage. Even getting chased by cops, and getting into all kinds of trouble could be a high for a thrill seeker.

When I get high I get high on speed
Top fuel funny car’s A drug for me
My heart, my heart
Kick start my heart
Always got the cops Coming after me
Custom built bike doing 103
My heart, my heart
Kick start my heart
Oh, are you ready girls?
Oh, are you ready now?
Ooh, yeah
Kick start my heart Give it a start
Ooh, yeah, baby Ooh, yeah
Kick start my heart Hope it never stops
Ooh, yeah, baby
Skydive naked From an aeroplane
Or a lady with a Body from outer space
My heart, my heart
Kick start my heart
Say I got trouble, Trouble in my eyes
I’m just looking for Another good time
My heart, my heart
Kick start my heart
Yeah, are you ready girls?
Yeah, are you ready now?
Oh, yeah
Kick start my heart Give it a start
Oh, yeah, baby Ooh, yeah
Kick start my heart Hope it never stops…

  1. Mötley Crüe was all about the party, great song Barbara. I think that this song is more about cars than it is drugs, but I can see some people thinking that SPEED is a drug. This is a really wild video.

    • Thanks, Jim! It does seem from the lyrics that they are talking about the speed and exhilaration of racing, and all the other things. In the articles they do quote Nikki Sixx saying how he almost died (or did die for a bit) from a drug over dose and had to be revived. It was after this that he wrote this song.
      I like the song as it is fast and loud – haha! 🙂
