Songfacts®:

  • This song is a collaboration with Jamie Reynolds from Klaxons. Reynolds also sings on the track - the only featured vocal on Live Life Living.
  • Example told Digital Spy: "We weren't sure if it was gonna be for my album or his album and we weren't even sure if we were gonna release it, but it just ended up sounding great. 'Innocent Minds' it's called and it's just a really dark, aggressive song but its about the innocence of people who fall to the dark side of addiction and its just a mad, '90s-inspired track but really its more inspired by Chemical Brothers in its aggression."
