"Fire in Your New Shoes" as written by Finn Bjarnson, Finn Bjarnson, Mark Phillips, Ryan Raddon, Ryan Raddon and Martina ...
I like that outfit, the zipper's pinchin'
But if you want it any tighter, we could cinch it
Dress up leather, wear every colour
I'm going Rococo with sequins in the summer

So come
Twirl your dresses around
Lift your cotton socks on
And turn your cameras on now for the fun

While I light a fire in your new shoes
If you should smile, look so surprised
While I light a fire in your new shoes
Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

I light the fire
I light the fire

Buttons are busted, we're decorated
We make an ornament with gold and silver plating
So what's the latest, we raise a fever
We're just all red inside, that's all to see here

Yeah, we're red inside, we're all red inside
And the leg bone's connected to the one in the thigh
We are red inside, we're all red inside
And the leg bone's connected to the one in the thigh

So come oh, oh, oh
Twirl your dresses around uh, uh, uh
Lift your cotton socks, sock, sock, sock, sock
Turn your cameras oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

While I light a fire in your new shoes
If you should smile, look so surprised
While I light a fire in your new shoes
Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

While I light a fire in your new shoes
If you should smile, look so surprised
While I light a fire in your new shoes
Look out that your soles don't burn to the floor

While I light a fire
I light a fire

    Lyric CorrectionInstead of:
    "I'm going loco-co with sequins in the summer." I'm definitely hearing: "I'm going rococo with sequins in the summer". As in 18th century French fashion and decor Late Boroque? Also, instead of "If you should smile, look so surprised" I feel like it's "You're fuschia smile looks so surprised". This just makes more sense to me, but I could be totally wrong, anyone else agree with my interpretation?

    My InterpretationThis always makes me think of runway fashion shows.

    "I like that outfit, the zippers' pinchin',
    But if you want it any tighter we could cinch it."

    Gotta be tighter, thinner, more "in".

    "So, come - twirl your dresses around,
    Lift your cotton socks on,
    And turn your cameras on
    Now for the fun..."

    Being on the runway is the best part, with the cameras flashing and twirling and showing it off... Yeah. That's what this song reminds me of, no idea if it's accurate or not.

    General CommentI think the song is about going to a rave. More specifically about a girl/girls going to a rave, and the excitement that they get getting dressed up for one.
