This song finds 1975 singer Matty Healy spending four minutes frantically trying to locate his mind. "With that song I wanted to do The Replacements doing Dr Seuss… and after I stopped doing certain things, I felt a bit mad, but I kind of had a knowledge that I was going to be alright," he told When The Gramophone Rings
. "Which is why there's a resignation to my madness in the opening lyric 'Well I think I've gone mad, isn't that so sad.'"
"In the pre-production I got about four or five lines in before realizing that we'd have to cut it up and record it in bits" Healy added, "but then I had a bit of a psychedelic experience at FYF Festival, so the next day in the studio I was a broken man, I felt really on edge. That night I did the whole song twice, then that second take made it onto the record."
