The song tackles themes of survival and inner conflict. Uchis explained to Genius
"I have a huge level of respect for people who actually work hard and are survivors. When you're in a good place or when you're the unicorn that was able to get out of the circumstances, that doesn't happen for a lot of people because of the way the system is built. It's easy to be like, 'Oh well, I got here. Anything is possible. You can do it, too. Why can't you just do it for yourself?' It's not that easy for everybody."
