In 1989 Ian Astbury said this song was about the Americanization of European culture: "Several images sprang to mind as I was writing this song, it was kind of an observation of how European youth is becoming somewhat reluctantly Americanized. You know the references to the 'The Star Spangled Banner.' But again with all my lyrics I like to leave them open to people's interpretations and hope that people find themselves inside my songs."
