The song's subject matter fits Kid Cudi like a glove. The self-proclaimed "Man On The Moon" named his first two albums Man On The Moon: The End Of Day
(2009) and Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager
(2010). Asked by HipHopDX.com
in 2009 what the "moon" in the album title represents, Cudi explained: "The moon is pretty much my place of peace, whether it's a room or my mind. It's really your own personal space. It could be interpreted any different way. I didn't wanna have it so literal. I want kids to interpret it and find their own moon in their world."
