Songfacts®:

  • This song sees Morissette singing of realizing our greater collective human potential. Some record company types were concerned the tune would go over listener's heads. "I was actually strongly advised by certain suit-wearing types not to put that song on the record," she told Digital Spy, "but I'm glad I did. They were afraid of the "lofty content." I was like, 'What are you talking about? I'm all about lofty content!'"
