When discussing the ideas behind the track, vocalist Ben Cohen stated:
“Nutrition is a song written under pressure and I think it shows in the best way. There’s an immediacy and a rawness to the track that makes it a special song on the album. It was the last song written for the record and the quickest one to track.
Under pressure of time there really wasn’t much room for second guessing or editing. So when it came to my part, the lyrics have a lot of imagery that we were consuming daily in our city. Always easiest to write about something you know.”
