  • Lyrics
  • Frontman Alex Kapranos told Mojo December 2008 that this is possibly Franz Ferdinand's most direct rock song to date.
  • Kapranos told Mojo magazine February 2009 that all the tracks on Tonight: Franz Ferdinand take place at night, apart from this song, "which is at 5.05 in the morning, which kind of is the night, if it's a heavy one."
  • Kapronos explained to the New Musical Express January 17, 2009: "It's about rejecting God, but acknowledging that we all need to believe in something, and that it would be easier if there was a Charlton Heston in the sky with an omniscient beard."
