The song starts with one of vocalist Ian Brown's frequent lyrical themes: a messiah complex. There was no crucifixion
Just lies to steal your mind
Brown once declared "I am the Resurrection" and the Roses cheekily titled their second album The Second Coming
. Many of Brown's lyrics also contain biblical references. For instance, the line "You feel my flow and you flood my brain" in "One Love
" has its origin in John's Gospel chapter 7 verses 37-38.
