Mick Jagger said the band was “recording some new material before the lockdown and there is one song that we think will resonate through the times when we live now. We have dealt with it separately. And here it is.”
Keith Richards said: “We cut this song over a year ago in LA for a new album, an ongoing thing, and then bad luck. Mick and I decided this really needed to go to work now and here you have it. “

Elsewhere, Jagger sings chaos (“Glasses are all destroyed / Trumpet all screams”) and social collapse:
All preachers all preach
Thieves like to steal
All widows cry
There are no beds left for us to sleep
Always have feelings
Everything will collapse.

He also sympathizes with those who suffer: “20 million people lose their jobs completely because of something that has nothing to do with them. And also the less money you have, the more worries you have. So for many people, this is very difficult. I mean, I have friends and they live in very small apartments in big cities and they have nowhere to go and they lose their jobs. I am very, very lucky and I am very aware of how lucky I am, but not everyone is as lucky as me. “
