The track could be interpreted as seeing the three artists taking on the perspectives of Thrones characters. The Weeknd’s contributions here (“I was born of the ice and snow…”) suggest a bit of Jon Snow, while SZA and La Flame are presumably holding down the Daenerys and Night King voices, respectively. In the chorus, Abel sings of a desire to burn down his own power:
I rise from my scars
Nothing hurts me now
‘Cause power is power
Now watch me burn it down
