Glover said the song's meaning is open to each listener's interpretation:
"They're Ian Gillan's words, and I suppose it's about temptation, but they're ambiguous, and I like ambiguous words," he explained. "People can read want they want into it. People will anyway, even when you spell it out. 'Smoke on the Water
' is completely literal, and yet a DJ once asked me if we really set fire to an island. You can't stop people putting their own meaning to a lyric."
