The lyrics are about a future in which climate collapse has made the earth uninhabitable and those who can afford it are "jumping ship" into an uncertain future involving a space journey to (hopefully) a different planet. I attempt to think what it must feel like to be leaving the earth into the blackness of space, never to see it again, and in the full knowledge that no-one really knows if anyone will survive that journey or if there is anywhere to go to. The chaotic last section might be the moment of take-off.
Lyrics by Malcolm H Levitt and Peter Wilkinson refer to the Mohammed al-Durrah incident (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-Durrah).
