Are some parts of this song parodys of Winter Wonderland? Like, "Everywhere the Atom Bombs are dropping" compares to "In the winter we can build a snowman".

It's not supposed to be, but now that you mention it some of the verses sound similar. But it's only because they have the same number of syllables - the notes are fairly different.

Yeah, I agree with Mewrio. I think it's just a coincidence. The melodies are very different.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

I don't think it's a coincidence, but it's not a parody either. He seemed to be going for a sound that was very reminiscent of many Christmas songs in general. It's possible that he wove a play on that tune into the song intentionally. I hear a lot of "Jingle Bell Rock" in the song too.

Probably because the term "ground zero" was used to describe the spot where the WTC stood.
