According to interviewer Laura Snapes of The Guardian, this song outlines Neil's move to London in the early 1970s. Neil then elaborated, speaking of his past in the same present tense in which the lyrics are apparently written: "I get a flat with friends, we’re all dressing up, you're wondering about your sexuality," adding that it's "what happens between verses two and three of 'Being Boring.'” Snapes goes on to describe the song as "defiant and dreaming, sparked by glam and flashing forward, in a classic Tennant rap breakdown, to the New York dance records that would bring [Tennant] and Lowe together." Neil again chimed in: "It's done in the style of an early '80s Grandmaster Flash rap… which is the rap style that comes naturally to me."
