    Lyrically, the song is about personal tribulations amid the oppression of the world around her, while she sings: "I will live by my own policies/I will sleep with a clear conscience." https://bit.ly/3JkYl2E When O'Connor's 17-year-old son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, was laid to rest earlier this year, friends and family comforted the singer and Shane’s dad, folk musician Donal Lunny, as Shane O'Connor was remembered at a private Hindu funeral service held at Newlands Cross Cemetery and Crematorium in West Dublin on Saturday, January 15. O’Connor, who wore a pink tracksuit and green scarf for the service, after requesting mourners wear bright colors in Shane’s honor, later confirmed via Twitter that she had put cigarettes in her son’s coffin “in case there’s none in heaven”: https://bit.ly/3Kn23d2

    The Emperor's New Clothes was a fairy tale written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1837. As the story goes, an emperor orders fine clothing, is given nothing, yet told that what he is wearing is magnificent, though invisible to underlings. When he parades naked down the street, the people pretend to marvel at his clothes until a child points out that he is naked. In O'Connor's song, she sings about her own personal tribulations amid oppression and judgement.
