The song was inspired by a conversation Kanye and Ant Clemons were having with two others about Jesus. Clemons recalled to Complex
"Kanye was saying how he felt about being with Christ. He felt like we should be fluid as water. He was spitting the lines out in conversation. Kanye's like, 'Take the chlorine out of our conversation.' And I'm like, 'That's a Kanye West bar if I've ever heard it in my life.'"
