The Veronicas are Australian twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso. Lisa told The Herald Sun that it's "about an idiot that I dated overseas.'' Jess added: "When it comes down to it, that song's about cheating. A lot of people have been through it, like I've been through it, so it was very easy to relate to that situation. And I saw that whole situation go on, so it wasn't hard to write that song with her.''
Miya from Seattle, WaThis song is referring to Lisa's ex-boyfriend, American singer Ryan Cabrera. The lyrics: "And you're on the way down/ I can't wait to see you burn" directly reference Cabrera's 2004 single "On the Way Down"
"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.
