And, according to the song’s Wikipedia entry: “The song peaked at #12 on the Canadian Billboard Hot 100,  making it K-os’s highest reaching single. The single also reached #1 on the Muchmusic Countdown in 2005. The song tells the story of a man who has gone through rough times and wishes to be back the way he was originally. According to the Joyful Rebellion liner notes, the song is indeed about Michael Jackson in particular, as well as K-os himself (and people in general.)”
