The Killing Moon

“It’s largely about pre-destiny. One morning I woke up in bed with the lyric “Fate, Up against your will, Through thick and thin, He will wait until, You give yourself to him.” I remember thinking that God must have woken me up with those words. It wasn’t that I dreamt them, I just woke up and they were there. The chord structure is that of “Space Oddity” played backwards.”Ian McCulloch (138)

In Bluer Skies

“‘In Bluer Skies’ is about walking off to a better sky. I felt like I was living in a Dulux advert where the sky is going black, and I personally thought we should be looking for something a lot lighter. It was the last song we wrote and recorded for the album and it leaves a lot more space than the others.”Ian McCulloch (662)
