The song is about a friend of vocalist Lukas Forchhammer, who was part of Denmark's gangland culture. The track picks up the story from where Lukas Graham's previous single, "Criminal Mind", left off. Forchhammer recalled to Billboard magazine "On April 24, 2012, he got riddled with bullets in his car." Why? "Well, by doing what he did, the f--ker. He got rehabilitated in prison; I visited him a few times, then he busted out and fled to Iran.
Now I Skype with him once in a while. A lot of my friends aren't God's best children, you could say. They grew up selling drugs, carrying guns, having bulletproof vests but they are quite endearing, really."
