Hawley told The Sun September 18, 2009 the story behind this song: "It's about a pal of mine who's in a bit of a mess, pretty much where I was ten years or so ago except I got out of the car before it crashed into the wall. He's crashed his car, gone through the wall, fell of the cliff, trashed it totally but still it drives on. He lost his family, house, job, the lot cocaine and STILL does it. I am not judging as I live in a glasshouse, so to speak, but I stopped because I didn't want to lose my loved ones and the love and respect of my mates. Also I wasn't too keen on dying just yet. It's too high a price to pay but he doesn't seem to get it. It's a love song for a lost friend and a lost future. I hope the shock of it makes him wake up. I had no other options left with which to help him. It's a mirror held up right in his big beautiful daft face. I love the man, always will."
