    The song's lyrics call out people who abuse their power — particularly, as implied, men with younger women in the entertainment industry — as the music video shows a snake slithering around Billie's neck.

    There are some fan theories that the song is, in part, about Billie's ex, Q, who Billie started dating when she was 16 and he was 22. In particular, they point to lyrics like "You swear you didn't know (Didn't know) / You said you thought she was your age." Her documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry, explores their volatile relationship further.

    Well, in a new Instagram post teasing the song, Billie herself opened up about the meaning of the song.

    "This is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. I feel very vulnerable putting this one out because I hold it so close to my heart," she wrote.
