. However after it only got minor airplay on the radio, it was replaced by "The Day I Died
Allsopp explained this song to Digital Spy
: "It's about a character who works in a shop and is obsessed with his boss, who's a pretty sexy woman. She's kind of ignoring him, and the more she does that the more his obsession turns nasty. The song's really about not fitting in, which is something a lot of people struggle with - they distance themselves from reality through technology. It's quite weird and dark!"
The song's protagonist is one of a number of characters on All Night Cinema who take the wrong choices or suffer bad luck. Allsopp told The Independent August 28, 2009: "I am drawn to that. I'm reading a collection of short stories by Richard Yates [author of Revolutionary Road] and every one is heartbreaking, but feels true."
