Availability[edit]

Fan Interpretation[edit]

This song appears to describe a hypothetical scenario in which a man discovers that he is Jesus, returning for the second coming (or some other messiah-like character). He finds that the power goes to his head, becoming a celebrity in the process, only to realize that in doing so, everyone (including his angels) thinks he's an asshole and has overstayed his welcome.

Alternative Fan Interpretation[edit]

The song could also be describing a small child or baby. When a baby is born (especially a first child), they might become, quickly and easily, the center of all attention. Everything revolves around the baby, then as the baby grows and becomes a naughty toddler or even obnoxious teenager, everyone who was fawning over them rolls their eyes and leaves.
