[Hook: Matthew Santos]
The hook has a universal and personal meaning. Describing someone looking down from the sky, Lupe, a devout Muslim, channels the traditional depiction of God as an omnipotent being hidden somewhere up in the clouds
The hook most likely serves as a shout-out to Lupe’s deceased father, to whom this song is dedicated, though either interpretation is plausible. Hell, perhaps both.
