This is a straightforward Makenshi fan vid. I can hardly watch it anymore; I get too emotional. T_T
For those who are unfamiliar with FFU, allow me to spend a moment making the series sound way cooler than it actually is:
"Chaos," (the colorful, abstract-looking stuff) an evil force powered by negative emotions, has consumed world after world. It took Makenshi's (the man in white) planet, along with his older brother, Madoushi (the man in red). Later, servants Chaos revive Madoushi, whose grudge against his younger but stronger sibling lived on as a ghost within his sword. Jealous, he attacks Makenshi, feeding the chaos with his rage rather than fighting it alongside his brother.
The vid closely follows the song. Some of the hardest parts were the more intensely emotional lines, because Makenshi shows so little emotion and usually appears very relaxed, almost lazy, even though he is under a lot of pressure. However, the natural, elegantly effortless style of the character did match the overall feel of the music.

Time: 2 months. The first few days I spent working on this I made myself really sick by refusing to stop to sleep. Ah, the joys of a new addiction.
How can I repay you, brother mine?
How can I expect you to forgive?
Clinging to the past, I shed our blood
And shattered your chance to live.
Though I knew the laws, I paid no heed.
How can I return your wasted breath?
What I did not know has cost you dear,
For there is no cure for death.
Beautiful mother, soft and sweet,
Once you were gone we were not complete.
Back through the years we reached for you,
Alas 'twas not meant to be.
And how can I make amends
For all that I took from you?
I led you with hopeless dreams,
My brother, I was a fool.
Don't cry for the past now, brother mine.
Neither you nor I are free from blame.
Nothing can erase the things we did,
For the path we took was the same.
My dreams made me blind and mute.
I long to return to that time.
I followed without a word,
My brother, the fault is mine.
So where do we go from here?
And how to forget and forgive?
What's gone is forever lost.
Now all we can do is live.
