  • Vocalist Jonathan Higgs described this to The Line Of Best Fit as "a family break-up/divorce sort of song," adding that it is, "a conversation between partners: you take the family, I'll take the car." He added: "It's got flippancy to it but with a suicide overtone. And then, a bit like 'Undrowned', it starts losing it a bit. Going on about: isn't there anything more than this? Feeling pretty dejected."
