Songfacts®:

  • Vocalist Simon Neil told Kerrang! magazine about this semi-mystical anthem: "We played this during some of our summer shows. It's about that feeling where you can almost do anything if you stick together."

    He added: "There's a lyric, 'We can change the world, despite our enemies fighting on if you listen to your heart and sing. Pray for love, it feels like a memory. But if we hold on, there's a victory over the sun.' It's about seeing the light through the darkness."
  • Simon Neil told NME: "It's about pleading with someone you love to sort themselves out. It makes you wanna dance."
