The album title comes from a line in this song. Ben Barlow told HMV.com
"The working title for the album was Where Do We Go When We Go, which I didn't like much, it's a bit heavy and it doesn't roll off the tongue, it's not super memorable. I was writing 'Motion Sickness' and the line came in that and it sounded cool and everyone said yes instantly. It's got a good ring to it."
