  • Lyrics
  • Example wrote this this song in Los Angeles with the English producer Stuart Price (New Order, Madonna, The Killers) . Example recalled to The Daily Mirror: "When we did this in L.A, I wanted to write a song that I could open a Glastonbury performance with. So there's a real pad at the start, and then [makes dun dun dun, dun dun] almost a bit like Orbital, and then there's this deep vocal."
  • Example explained the song's meaning: "Essentially it's about being inside someone's mind, to see where they go at night," he said. "Imagine if you could see in someone's head, what they're thinking, what they're doing. What does everyone get up to at a festival, that's what I was thinking."
