Noah "Panda Bear" Lennox explained the meaning of this psychedelic dance tune to Fader magazine. "The song sets up an animal vs. person comparison," he said. "The way animals deal with things instinctually and don't really get lost in their minds was very attractive to me; there's a nobility to that."
"The song talks about the dark places that people get into, and all the emotional and mental clutter that we have - but it's also about sex," he continued.
"There's companies that make sound packs for producers, and some of them are cheesy and lame," Lennox added. "There's a couple sounds that I used from a reggae pack for this song. I got into using stuff that felt really common and devoid of any unique character, and tried to use stuff in a way that felt like nobody else could have made it except for me. Bringing my own personality and character to those things was something I got pretty excited about. On their own, though, the sounds are pretty cheesy. If I isolated them you'd be like, 'I don't know about this.'"
