Songfacts®:

  • Killing Joke lead singer Jaz Coleman is often inspired by the movements of the universe, and that's what inspired this track from their Pylon album - the band's 16th studio set.

    In the song, Coleman sings rather depressing verses, but is vitalized in the chorus when a ray of sunshine appears, as if answering his concerns. In our interview with Coleman, he explained: "It's this sense that we're on a wave, that we're doing the right thing, that we're meant to be here now, doing what we're doing. This sense of it isn't how bad the world seems - there's everything to live for."
