Newcastle-upon-Tyne bouncer Raoul Moat hit the headlines in 2010 when he went on the run after shooting three people. Amongst his victims was police officer David Rathband, who was permanently blinded. Frontman Jonathan Higgs told The Line Of Best Fit
that this song is, "a re-imagining of what he must have gone through." He explained: "I read this huge interview with him and he was saying how he couldn't remember the faces of his family. They were featureless as an orange to him. And I thought that was so stunningly poignant. It was poetic but at the same time incredibly un-poetic and devastating. It was a terrible thing to have happened. It just completely ruined his life. Some of the lyrics are quotes from the interview. He said he kept seeing the moment, seeing Raul Moat appearing in his mirror and that's his last memory and he kept seeing it all the time."
