Songfacts®:

  • Singer Cormac Neeson told Kerrang! February 21, 2009, that on this bluesy number the band "got a gospel singer in to bring out a bit at the end of the song, and it's the whole kinda bluesy soulful thing, which is definitely a part of what The Answer is about."
  • Neeson added: "With the lyrics, what I'm trying to do is capture the spirit of youth, that kinda feeling when you're young - there's a reference to being hooked on Troublegum and Take The Power Back, bands like Therapy? and Rage Against The Machine I was into, when I was first starting to discover rock 'n' roll music and first starting to drink and play about with different things that I shouldn't really be playing about with."
