  • This song finds Jonathan Higgs criticizing right-wing politics. He told NME: "It's about the way people have been fooled by Ukip (UK Independence Party) and the right. It's this quasi-religious thing, like, 'he laid his hands on me and told me everything was going to be great, but he's also got these horrible f--king views' - the rise to power through horrible, manipulative ways."
