The track can be described as some what emtitional with a lot of likeablity. The opening rift is similar to thats of Smells like teen spirit by Nirvana however unfinished bussiness has more energy. The music heavyily tells the story of the Bands struggle against a patriarchal society that holds down there views and freedoms. the lyrics by Eoghan O'Hagan expresses Kill The Idols frustration of the heiarchal rule "why dont you answeer the god dame question" and "your just a failed attempt to change me, I'll be who i was born to be".
