And staged your self a bed in
A month later when I popped in
You're still high but the winter set in
I bought you a coffee and a muffin

from M.I.A. – 27 Lyrics on Rap Genius


Her friend staged herself a bed-in, a protest for peace where you stay in bed. She was moping around her apartment, drained of all motivation. M.I.A. visits her friend bringing her coffee and a muffin to perhaps cheer her up a month after the passing of her friend’s father. So much time has passed that the season has changed however, her friend is still on her drug binge so it seems she has found no peace.
