Happy Birthday In The Sky” segue i precedenti singoli “Beautiful James”, “Surrounded By Spies” e “Try Better Next Time”, ognuno dei quali mostrava diversi aspetti della vita della band negli ultimi dieci anni. Se i primi trattavano tematiche come la responsabilità personale, la saturazione tecnologica e il vero posto dell’umanità nel mondo, “Happy Birthday In The Sky” è un brano struggente. Brian Molko afferra ogni parola e la sputa in uno sfogo emotivo e violento allo stesso tempo, sfiora emozioni oscure per raccontare la storia di una perdita e i meccanismi con cui proviamo a difenderci e reagire. Lui stesso rivela:

“Happy Birthday In The Sky for me, is one of the more heartbreaking moments on the album. Happy Birthday In The Sky is a phrase that I’ve been using for quite some time.  When I say, happy birthday to people who aren’t with us anymore, it communicates the kind of heartbreak that we’re really, really good at communicating I think. You know that sense of loss, that sense of desperation. It’s as if a part of your body and your soul has been ripped from you unfairly. And you pine and you pine, and you wait.

What I am thinking is that this is kind of so visceral and so intense emotionally that it’s really going to communicate something very powerful to the listener. And that’s basically all I’m interested in. At what cost? Who cares. As long as the song really, really moves people, then whatever sacrifices you have to make in order to get there are fine with me. It’s not such a bad thing to inhabit these emotions – you’re very, very much alive and in the moment while you’re doing so.”
