Koenig explained to NME February 16, 2010: 
“I got the idea for the song from a book my dad gave me called Giving Up The Gun. It’s a history book about the time when Japan expelled all the foreigners from the country, closed off all trade and stopped using guns and reverted back to the sword. It seems unimaginable now that humanity could willingly go back to an older technology. It got me thinking about whether you could give up all the things that you have and go back to a simpler way of life.”
Side Note: The unbeatable female tennis player is played by Jenny Murray, who previously was the goth girl in the “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa"
