The song begins with an infectious drum pattern that sounds like a funky military drummer in a dark club. Eerie angelic sythn tones and the looping main vocal hook then join this foundation to set the vibe. The full sound kicks in with space aged keys on top of a solid beat, setting up the framework for the very original and passionately delivered verses. The rhymes bounce on the beat with energy and stay tucked in the pocked while melodically doing high registered vocal acrobatics. The lyrics fit in many ideas and themes from the artist’s personal story while giving them a strange and creative spin, the line “Culture Vultures tried to eat me” sticks out.
