Spacehog lead singer Royston Langdon came to America from Leeds, England in 1994 where he met up with his brother, Antony, who had formed the band. "We wrote that song together and we used it as a metaphor for ourselves and what was going on," Royston said in a Songfacts interview
. "It was definitely some kind of feeling around change in our own world, as there was some anticipation around the band and all that. And it didn't take much to change where we were from because we pretty much didn't have anything."
