: "That song, I suppose, is me at my most guilty," he said. "Which, I suppose, is a running theme through a lot of the record 'cause a lot of our records are quite self-deprecating. I think it's a song about me apologizing really. It came about very quickly, that song… 'Me' was written and recorded in about a day."
