Beck told Q
magazine this is one of the quartet of songs on Morning Phase
that "felt like they were the gravitational centre of the record." (The other three are "Waking Light
" and "Say Goodbye
He takes pride in their lyrical simplicity. "I think I used to make a lot of my songs are a lot more dense," Beck told Q
. "I think that's a typical instinct, starting out. Though I still love lyrics that are dense – I love lyrics that you can get lost in. I feel with a record like this the melodies need to be really pure, and less clutter there is with the words, the better the melodies were."
