Songfacts®:

  • Brown told Clash Magazine about this song: "It's about where I come from, where I've got to. Yeah it's my favourite subject, myself (laughs). I did the last one, as a sort of social commentary on the state of the world, so I did the opposite; the last album was sort of a social commentary about the churches, poverty and I thought I'd rather do it in an album than talk about it in interviews, instead of going on about them in interviews, I'll put them in a song and so I did it that way. I had to bring it back round the opposite way and this is all about the person not the whole world."
