It is about technology and how it separates people even further rather than bringing them closer together. Also, it is the track with the infamous bubble wrap, shopping bag and skeleton bone percussion sounds, inspired by Tom Waits.
Also about self harm.
Played a lot in 2000 and in 2001 (sometimes on the piano), a rare quiet moment from Origin of Symmetry.
Bellamy's voice cuts out for a split second at 3:33.
During the 2001 tour, as seen on the Hullabaloo DVD, the song was preceded by Rachmaninov's prelude in C♯ minor, which was transposed down to C minor to match Screenager.
