One sided single and story (with a surgical) theme of a person who has put themselves out there – only to be ripped apart by someone who does not care enough – now begging to be left alone to lick their wounds. Somewhat an homage to Depeche Mode, a band who’s magnificent legacy to synth music needs no further comments. The blogg Popmuzik interviewed Jack about the song and the story behind it.
