Dave Gahan said in the Electronic Press Kit for 'Paper Monsters':

"That was the one song on the album when I was literally walking down the street and the whole thing came in my head, like kind of overwhelmed me. I always carry this little dictaphone around with me and I pulled it out and I'm walking down the street, people are looking at me and I just started singing into this dictaphone – the whole melody, all the words. By the time I got home I had the whole song and I picked up the phone, I called Knox and I played him the dictaphone down the phone to him. I saw that song as like… to me it's got a real gospel feel about it but it's turned out quite different, the way we recorded it – but I always heard this big gospelly choir, and stuff, and it didn't end up like that but I think it's come out pretty good and again I think it's got a pretty universal feel about it. "
