Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Robbie examining his own addictive tendencies in a similar fashion to several of his past tunes such as "Come Undone." He told music streaming service Spotify how he took inspiration from Bob Dylan for this track: "That's me trying to channel Bob Dylan. I'm not saying I got anywhere near it at all. I'm just saying I tried to do it!," he said. "'I feel my energy, justify some company, darling, everything I like is illegal, seductive, addictive in my world, corrosive, destructive...' It's flag-waving, rampart-standing, stadium-menacing, stadium-bothering song. I don't really know what it is."
