Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Harvey singing of love turning into violence and mutilation, when the lover would rather butcher the other person than lose it all. She explained to NME: "'I love you so much that I'll cut your legs off so you can't leave me.' I got that idea from when you're younger and you have your favorite toys that you play with and you love them so much that they fall apart."
