The song's hook ends with the lines:
"Chasin' that American dream
But life ain't always what it seems
So I had to bury that."
No Malice explained to Rap Genius
: "To me the American dream can be a hoax. You can chase it, achieve it, only to realize it can lead to more problems. The first thing you need is an unwavering foundation. Then and only then can you begin to build. For me, God is that absolute! Jesus Christ the same yesterday and today and forever.-Hebrews 13:8."
