Frontman Michael Gira told Rolling Stone this song is literally "a list of things that human beings do." Asked what his mood was when writing it., he admitted to having, "wild and unpredictable mood shifts."

This is a duet with New York cabaret singer Little Annie, who has also worked with Paul Oakenfold, Marc Almond and Antony Hegarty.

The orchestral strings were played and arranged by Vancouver, British Columbia-born cellist and composer Julia Kent.

    Those strings starting around 3:30 are just like those from The Dream of Jacob by Penderecki

    It seems like a thousand souls screaming when the atmosphere turns creepy. I love this. And yes, the last part of the lyrics is astounding.

    That point at the end where he’s repeating “we fuck, we love, we fuck, we love” is great. It's as if he’s forcing you to confront the duplicity of human nature, the idea that love, this beautiful thing, might just be a repackaging of sexual desire. He ends on “we love, we love, we love…”, and you get a sense that he’s reconciled the inherent weirdness of humanity and achieved some sort of existential equipoise, but you’re still left with that unnerving, uncomfortable feeling. It’s fucking brilliant.
