The St. Petersburg Times (July 7, 2006)

BRIGHT SPARKS


"I think it does, it’s on two levels again. You can take it as a relationship song, too, because it’s saying, “Can I invade your country, baby?,” so in a certain way it’s speaking in a very primitive way, about a relationship, but then it also combines this kind of overly jolly-sounding chorus which is so happy but with the lyric of “Can I invade your country,” which is not such a happy topic. We just like the contradiction of those two elements, plus the confusion speaking about the relationship, so it’s speaking about the current affairs in the world."
