The lyrics for this song began with an image that came to Moby during a late-night walk in downtown New York. He explained to The New York Times: ''I like taking these walks in the middle of the night, when it's empty and quiet. 'Things will pop into your mind - a vague place or picture that I then put down in words. And the image I had for these lyrics was of two people who had died together somehow going around to places where they used to live. It was some dreamy city, a city but also an island, and this couple was sort of floating.''
The album was called 18 according to Moby, simply because it contained 18 tracks.
