“Have you ever seen someone and thought, ‘Wow, God must hate me’? Turner sings to start the brutally honest new song. “Because he spent so much time on them, and for me, he got lazy. She later sings that she “can’t hold me responsible, so I’ll blame metaphysics.”

Turner teased the song on TikTok earlier this month, writing, “The endless fear of what if I’m not pretty enough to be successful in music.” According to Broadway World, Turner called the song “the most vulnerable song” she has ever released. It can be seen clearly in his voice.

Turner added that the track is about “those times when feelings are so omnipotent, you really start to believe it. That you were wrong. That you’re not good enough. And, that perhaps, a higher power being angry with you is an easier pill to swallow than personal responsibility.
