After this was released as a single in December 2008, Rice-Oxley told the Daily Record
why this song means so much to the band. He said: "It's a sprawling epic with a hint of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody
to it. The subject matter is quite dark, but the message is very much about hope, and a belief that mankind can continue to produce beautiful things. A lot of people are having a hard time at the moment and I want people to be moved by it."
