Meek explained how the second half of the song highlights the duality between dreams and nightmares. “And the second part, when it get to the nightmare part, I just start screaming, going bananas, to the top of my lungs. Stating facts and getting real arrogant and real disrespectful, just showing them both sides. I could be a dream, I could be a nightmare.”

“I’m just telling you my story, and how I got here,” he added.
