  • This sweary song finds Williams addressing his two-year-old son, Charlie, forewarning him about his family's history of mental illness.

    "Well, it's true, there is a history of mental illness that runs through my family and through the whole human family, and the likelihood of my children having some sort of mental dysfunction is pretty high," he told The Guardian. "But I'm forearmed, I've got a lot of information, and I don't think they could do anything worse or get to a worse place than I did."
