Songfacts®:

  • Pineapple Thief mainman Bruce Soord got stuck on this song, so he asked King Crimson stickman Gavin Harrison, who sessioned on drums for Your Wilderness to help him finish it. He explained to HMV.com: "I was burnt out and I had already missed our deadline. He said 'Bruce, send me what you've done and I'll lay down some ideas'. And he did exactly that and it all came together nicely at the finish line."
