about the story behind the song, Andrew Savage said he was in a dark place when he penned the tune. He added: "For the story, I'd just refer you back to the song itself, as that really is the way I tend to tell stories, but essentially I was focusing on the malfunctions of my own humanity, in relation to a specific series of events in my life, which could not be ignored."
"It's meant to be a bit self-evident by the way puppets are used in the video," Savage continued. "As I see it, humanity is something that's partly performed and party instinctual. Like puppets, we sometimes are controlled by parts of ourselves that we never really become acquainted with, but are always there. This song is me confronting that shadow."
