Songfacts®:

  • This was released as the B-side to the single "Beautiful Girl." INXS frontman Michael Hutchence on the song's origin: "It was kind of inspired by how we really are, in some ways, a victim of our own biology, or biologies. With the world becoming more sophisticated, we tend to not realize how instinctual we are. So it's about somebody being overpowered by their own instincts."
