South Of Eden lead singer Ehab Omran channeled his frustration with America's dysfunctional political system into this song's lyrics, reflecting the anger many felt - regardless of affiliation - in 2020. "This song is about the scope of what's been happening in our climate," he told Songfacts
. "What's been happening since like the early 2000s with or political climate, with our governmental climate, with the way that businesses are running things, the way that parents are now teaching things.
That song is about 'the man' being a hypocrite, and that man is your parent or your boss or whoever is president at the time, regardless of what party, regardless of what race, regardless of any of that. At the end of the day, to me it seems like all they do is talk. It seems like no matter what things we're going through, it just ends up being funneled into the same thing.
The message is to think for yourself. Look around, take the goggles off, and think macroscopically rather than analyzing everything right here in front of your face."
