Songfacts®:

  • Passenger told The Sun this song is about living now, amidst the onslaught of "social media and technology, climate change and Donald Trump."

    He added: "It's such a baffling time to be a human being."
  • And I say ooh, oh-whoa
    Are there really survivors?
    Am I here alone?


    Passenger explained: "The chorus is just reaching out to people asking, 'Is anybody else completely baffled and terrified by the world we live in?' I think you've got to be careful with social media. You can get addicted to the buzz of people liking and commenting. It's exhausting."
