The single is William's first with his new songwriting partner Stephen Duffy. Williams himself calls the song "something like a mini gangster opera" and " kind of cabaret act reggae". The rolling rhythm of the song owes a lot to the early work of The Clash. During the chorus Williams reaches an extremely high disco-like falsetto. Lyrically the song is a bit darker than previous songs. It tells the tale of gangsters and how they "don't kill their own and all love their mothers", before an anguished chorus of "I've taken as much as I'm willing to take".

Tripping Daisy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (391 words)
Tripping Daisy was a rock band from Dallas, Texas.
Though minimalistic in some respects, the album is charactarized by an interesting fragmentary songwriting style, where a song can go from one vignette to a completely different other, and still achieve a seamless quality.
Their eponymous album was a warm symphonic affair with more beautiful instrumentation and playful lyrics, which rounded up this wonderful rock group by including a new version of 'One Through Four', a song originally featured on 'Bill', and the re-recorded edition showed the progress they had made in 6 years.
Robbie Williams - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2928 words)
The song's popularity propelled the album to number 1 on the album charts, 28 weeks after the album was first released.
The 'ballad'-style song is credited with single-handedly rescuing Williams' career, and has proved to be his most popular to date, although it never reached the top of the UK Singles Chart, peaking at number 4.
An amusing incident happened at Live 8 when he asked the crowd to sing along with his hit song 'Feel', in which many in the crowd in Hyde Park were not familiar with.
