This song's so relatable. It's about that feeling you get when your angst builds up. You're tired of people misreading you, pushing you to the edge. With Kanye West's typical angry vibe, Rihanna's powerful emotions, and Paul McCartney's mellow strumming, this vibe is perfectly encapsulated.

You can see yourself in this. Definately. It's than simple guitar and those keyboards accompanying, you just look up to the sky and think about all those times you've had enough, how close have you ever reached to murder, yeah murder, murdering the one that performs your love object...
