The song includes lyrics like;

A new democracy!
Everybody knows the damn truth
Our nation lied, we've lost respect
When we wake up, what can we do
Get the kids ready, take them to school
Everybody knows they don't have a chance
Get a decent job, have a normal life
When they talk reforms, it makes me laugh
They pretend to help, it makes me laugh

It all ends with a quote from Dr. Angels Davis: "I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept."

Madonna posted a note with the video, writing, "This is your wake up call. Gun violence disproportionately affects children, teenagers and the marginalized in our communities. Honor the victims and demand GUN CONTROL. NOW. Volunteer, stand up, donate, reach out. Wake up and insist on common-sense gun safety legislation. Innocent lives depend on it."

“Madame X” hit the top spot on Billboard 200 chart and became her ninth number one album.
