  • Lyrics
  • In a blog written by Fran Healy, shortly after this was recorded, he wrote that this was a very straight forward mix for the producer Emery Dobyns. He added: "He put it to bed in a matter of hours. This is the gong song. The gong we learned is actually called a tam tam and is used to great effect on this track. There is a 45 second drum fill at the end which brings the album to a fitting finale, like fireworks exploding."
