Frehley's near-electrocution may have been the inspiration for this song, but his lyric is really a stack of metaphors relating electrical terms to sex:
"My insulation's gone, girl you make me overload"
"Baby, I'm down to the bare wire"
In our interview with Ace Frehley
, we brought this up and the guitarist replied: "Isn't every Kiss song about sex? What Kiss song isn't about sex? Sex, drugs, and rock n' roll."
