In keeping with their fascination with Archduke Franz Ferdinand, for whom the band is named, "All For You, Sophia," contains references to historical figures associated with the assassination of the figure like assassin Gavrilo Princip, the Black Hands, which was the secret society who claimed responsibility for the assassination and the driver of the car that Ferdinand was riding in when he was assassinated.
