Hammill said of this album: "it became apparent fairly quickly that strong thematic links were running through the songs' lyrics: disappearance, change, loss, dislocation in various forms were stitched through all of them." This particular song is about the disappearance of Melanie Hall, a hospital clerical officer who disappeared after a night out in the town of Bath, where Hammill was then living. His disappearance remained unsolved for many years until her bones were eventually found.
