  • Frontman Cormac Neeson (from Kerrang! February 21, 2009): "The lyrics came into my head back when (then British Prime Minister) Tony Blair and his boys were talking about introducing these ID cards they've been talking about for a while. And I remember just thinking what the f—k is this all about, they might as well attach tracking devices on to everybody so they know exactly where everybody's going at every moment of the day."
