The allaying melody of the single's instrumentation is an entendre to Kele (pronounced “Kelly”) Fleming’s subversive lyrics; her vocals are both congenial and alluring while, at the same time, furthering the single’s cautionary parable in a cleverly ironic way.
These sentiments resonate with truth in the lyrics, “I bow to a new god, all shiny, bright, and oh so sleek.”
