This anthem call finds Marcus Mumford singing: "I'm a cad but I'm not a I'm not a fraud. I set out to serve the Lord." Speaking to the Big Issue, Mumford responded to the interviewer's question about the seeming religious undertones to the lyrics. "The lyric you said, 'I set out to serve the Lord,' no-one realizes it's pluperfect tense," he said. "The lyric is, 'I had set out to serve the Lord.' It's looking back at a time when that happened."
"I don't even call myself a Christian," he added. "Spirituality is the word we engage with more. We're fans of faith, no religion. We're just writing songs that ask questions. Sometimes the best way to go about exploring a question, things we wouldn't necessarily talk about in conversation, is by writing a song."
