The cold spoken verses on this electronic Hi-NRG song find Marina telling of the joy of breaking hearts for fun and shattering marriages. "It's about the power of an image," she explained on Amazon's website. "Looking sweet whilst secretly being a total bitch and getting away with it!"
Electra Heart is a concept album centered on the character named in the title. Marina told The Sun that Electra Heart has four personalities, one of which is 'Homewrecker.' They are, she said, "magnifications of certain parts of me and of every woman."
"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
