Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Marina addressing the serious effect of rape culture. "I'm not a political person at all, but I am interested in society," she told Time. "And seeing rape culture explode over the past few years and be pretty much in the news every single day is sickening. It's more about trying to start a conversation on why these things are in our human traits. Because they are natural to us even though it's really hard to hear. No one wants to say that rape is natural, but it's something that's been embedded in us, and it's horrendous. So that inspired that song."
