This heartwarming synth-banger finds M.I.A. singing and rapping about looking to the past to build a better future. However, as with much of the British-Sri Lankan provocateur's music she inserts some political rhymes too, as she spits some bars about drones and destruction. M.I.A said on the song's Soundcloud description:
"DEMOCRACY CONVERSATIONS ! TAMILS ARE STILL WAITING! AND NO MY BEATS ARE NOT BETTER WITHOUT MY POLITICX."
