    Is someone getting the best of you? Yeah. You are.

    He would like to be sepia, but he is but color.

    TO READ AFTER WATCHING :

    This is a tribute to the Beautiful Green Beast of Konoha, using a slightly alternate storyline. Basically, (and fans of the series will see the difference in plot), Lee is a hard-worker, motivated by the cheers of his teacher Gai. But he lacks any self-confidence whatsoever. I would go so far as to say his biggest enemy is himself. And that is why in the first fight segment, mirror effects and such have Lee fighting himself. His opponent, Gaara, is not at all seen at first. But when Lee is thrown against a wall and seems helpless, he starts fantasizing about what he could do if only he was stronger. This is sepia Lee, the rival I created. The whole song lyrics are just Lee talking to the Lee he wishes he could be, and ďBest of YouĒ can take on many meanings.

    Anyway, in Leeís fantasy, his better self totally dominates Gaara, overcoming great pain and showing huge courage. Again, everything Lee wishes he could do. But motivated by his dream, he charges his opponent, only to get seriously injured, both mentally and physically. The sepia/color comparison continues throughout the AMV, but in the end, I like to think Lee chose the latter over the former. In other words, he accepted who he was, and that is the path to self confidence.

    This is my first and last AMV. I only made this because of Lee. He taught me alot, and itís the least I could do.

    Iím quite grateful I found this song. It conveys an amazing amount of energy, which I tried to blend with Leeís.

    The video has been a year and 200 hours in the making, and Iím quite happy itís done.

    Best Of You


    I've got another confession to make
    I'm your fool
    Everyone's got their chains to break
    Holdin' you

    Were you born to resist or be abused?
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

    Are you gone and onto someone new?
    I needed somewhere to hang my head
    Without your noose
    You gave me something that I didn't have
    But had no use
    I was too weak to give in
    Too strong to lose
    My heart is under arrest again
    But I break loose
    My head is giving me life or death
    But I can't choose
    I swear I'll never give in
    I refuse

    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Has someone taken your faith?
    Itís real, the pain you feel
    You trust, you must
    Confess
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Oh...

    Oh...Oh...Oh...Oh...

    Has someone taken your faith?
    Itís real, the pain you feel
    The life, the love
    You die to heal
    The hope that starts
    The broken hearts
    You trust, you must
    Confess

    Is someone getting the best, the best,
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

    I've got another confession my friend
    I'm no fool
    I'm getting tired of starting again
    Somewhere new

    Were you born to resist or be abused?
    I swear I'll never give in
    I refuse

    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Has someone taken your faith?
    Itís real, the pain you feel
    You trust, you must
    Confess
    Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
    Oh...
