The song playfully addresses environmental concerns and global destruction, alluding to Earth as an asteroid heading towards an uncertain future: "it's getting warmer in here/but there is nothing to fear/because the world will still be here/after all."
With the artful composition skills of The Silver Fox aka John Goff, the pop anthem that speaks of planetary demise becomes an intense electronic ballad. Friend Slash Lover's Josh Mintz's lyrics become an eerie, soulful reminder of the uncertain times in which we find ourselves. Goff is best known for forming the ambient-indie band Psychic, which enjoyed world-wide cult fame until the band's demise in 2000, and for providing thrashing electronic themes to Sony for Playstation games.
