Fireworks

Album: World War III (2011)
  • Speaking to Rock Sound magazine, frontman Nathan Leone explained how the song's lyrical content was inspired by his love life. He said: "We'd been heading in several different directions sonically and Mateo [Camargo, guitar] had a bunch of almost clubby, hip-hop beats and loops we were working on. I met this gorgeous girl around that time that had a relentless sex appeal. She definitely inspired it lyrically, plus I'm engaged to her now so that worked out ha."
