Dennis Dunaway wrote "Fireball" and reportedly brought in the first song Alice wrote on his own back in 1968, "The Sound Of A".
The singer in "Fireball" has a bad dream about the end of the world, only to wake up in time to see it happening in real life.
"Genuine American Girl" is about a tough guy who is transgender and not afraid to let the world know about it.
"Paranormal" is the tender story about a girl and her best ghoul friend.
