"Get Away" deals with the anxiety George Ezra suffered from when he finished touring his first album. He told The Sun:
"I'm extremely fortunate to tour and travel but when I came off tour, I struggled with not having any structure. I didn't understand properly what it was that was going on but I knew something wasn't right. I had anxiety and I need to be busy. It made me think and wonder how many people who I have contact with day to day are going through something that others are not aware of. You can be sad and still smile."
"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
