Stokeswood wrote me asking for a lyric video. After listening the song I realized that this song deserves something different, a story.
I wanted to illustrate a path through feelings, situations… I wanted to illustrate life. The idea is that sometimes we feel lonely, or displaced by society. Then we try to change ourselves trying to fit, when in reality we are just where we have to be.

The river with those corpses represent the society, the way that we are supposed to be. The main character is absorbed by the standards of society, but his essence fights against it.
