Songfacts®:

  • This song is about two friends of the band, Jimmy and Clarky, who are both stubborn and "argue just for the pure sake of it." Kyle Falconer (vocals/guitar) explained to The View Are On Fire blog: "It just takes lot of bits, the highlights of all their arguments and puts them into a tune. We all used to be obsessed with the Illuminati stuff on the internet. We were all, like, 'Whoa, have you seen this?' But then my mate Jimmy dug too deep (laughs). Then he started saying he knows too much about it and he's being deadly serious."
