Blue Orchids guitarist Martin Bramah was interviewed by Simon Reynolds for his 2009 Faber & Faber book Totally Wired: Post-Punk Interviews and Overviews
, wherein he said of this uptempo track: "It's questioning our own vision. We think we've seen the way to pull the strings, but it's taking a step back and saying 'Hold on, that's hubris.' The song had a double meaning: the magician is made dumb by his own knowledge. The lyrics generally are about seeing behind the scenes and paying the price for your actions. You can do what you want, but there's always a price to pay for what you do."
