The track could be interpreted as seeing the three artists taking on the perspectives of Thrones characters. The Weeknd's contributions here ("I was born of the ice and snow...") suggest a bit of Jon Snow, while SZA and La Flame are presumably holding down the Daenerys and Night King voices, respectively. In the chorus, Abel sings of a desire to burn down his own power:
I rise from my scars
Nothing hurts me now
‘Cause power is power
Now watch me burn it down

The Peep x Ty Dolla track "When I Lie (Remix)" is notable to Peep fans as being a new version of "Needle." Producer Fish Narc recently gave fans some context on the collab, also confirming that the original versions of tracks from the same era would be formally released soon.
"[Peep] loved this show and also wanted to work with Ty," he said earlier this week. "That said I know I've promised the originals and I can assure you that they WILL come out and SOON."
