From watching Grouplove's documentary, this song shows the beginning of their band and the making of Grouplove. The members in the band "didn't ask for this" they never meant to meet up with each other and become a famous band. "Been working like a dog" suggests their own personal lives that they were living before their band. They weren't rich, and they were working hard to make ends meet. "I didn't know my name" suggests their findings of who they really are, and what they came to be, which is Grouplove. They still got a little bit longer and a ways to go with the band, music, and life.
