This song is about the urban paranoia of terrorism, which Kelly Jones witnessed after the July 7 terrorist bombings, which killed 52 people in London. He recalls in The Sun
newspaper October 12, 2007: "We were in America at the time and we could see people trying to phone home and they couldn't get hold of the people they wanted to. You start to appreciate friends and family a lot more in life and we were like everyone else, and wanted to be with the people we loved."
