The song’s title was interpreted by the media as a reference to Cocaine, Mark Sutherland for example reviewing the song for the NME described the lyrics as ‘Coke-crazy’. Draper refuted the interpretation in the liner-notes to Legacy: The Best of Mansun. Draper described the writing process and the song’s meaning: ‘This one started as She Makes Me Bleed but that sounded too earnest. So I added the ‘nose’ bit assuming everybody would think I was really witty. Instead everybody just thought I was a big druggy!’
