This song revolves around the 2011 riots that left parts of England in a state of mayhem. Asked for information about the track, guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto told NME: "We all live in Hackney so when we were rehearsing, we'd finish and we'd see it all going on. There was a gang who hung around outside my flat for the whole summer. It very surreal to see it on TV and actually realize you were right in the middle of it."
Temper Trap's Dougy Mandagi explained to The Guardian why he chose to pen a song about the riots. "I was writing a lot about my relationship," he said. "I fell in love about half way through my last touring cycle, then that went to s--t. Totally shattered. And you know, thought I was over it, but then when we started to get back into writing I found myself naturally wanting to write about that stuff. So I obviously had s--t to get over. Then one day I had nothing else to say about that, kind of a Forrest Gump moment, and I was looking for inspiration from other things, and it was such a significant moment in time and I was there. I went out and had my camera. I just thought, somebody should write something about this. It's an important thing that happened."
