    If you enjoyed the music in this video, check out the band 3 at their new website that I made: http://www.theband3.com

    Comments by 3 frontman Joey Eppard:
    "Nice work Jeff! You're attention to detail is just awesome. Every lyric fits perfectly with each sequence. The musical and the visual in perfect harmony!"

    I actually started this last year, before the "Dogs of War" video, and for some reason just didn't finish it. I knew it was a good idea but for some reason I just couldn't get anywhere with it and was stuck. After a long break from it I went back and fixed up the parts I had started and began to add the rest. I quickly found my groove and had no problem finishing the video.

    Now I knew this was going to be a good drama video because the song is very powerful and deals with a subject matter not often used in music. I knew the anime would be a perfect fit because of some very apparent literal connections to the lyrics, but also some emotional connections as well. I really tried hard to make the characters portray the emotions in the song, and I think I succeeded.

    I put a spoiler warning on this AMV, but it really only spoils about half of the series, as there is a point in Gungrave where the series takes a strange supernatural turn, which didn't really fit with my video. But it does spoil a big turning point in the anime so it's worth mentioning for people who haven't seen it.

    Also, there's a little easter egg in this video if you've seen Gungrave. Some of the scenes overlayed at the very end of the video (the ones that don't move so fast) have a different meaning if you can catch what scenes they are.

    I definitely plan to enter this in the Anime Boston AMV contest this year, and possibly some other cons as well. I have high hopes for this AMV.

    Lyrics: (courtesy of Lee Taggart)

    You've been shot (shot, shot, shot...)
    Full of holes
    You feel your eyes about to close
    And the clothes you're in
    Seem paper thin
    You feel the frost bite fangs sink in
    'Cause it's cold outside
    With no place to hide
    Your blood out in the snow
    And the people stare
    But they're unaware
    Of why you had to go

    Just think of all the fun you've had
    Breaking heads and acting bad
    But now that all those days are done
    Wound up on the other side
    Of a gangster's gun...

    Paralyzed, but a pulse remains
    To pump last thoughts
    Through your dying brain
    Remember Mom
    Said alwys do your best
    But now a bullet burns
    Within your chest
    And the sirens sound
    Crowd gathers round
    Like moths to flame they fly
    Because they love blood's smell
    But they're scared as hell
    Of what it means to die...

    Just think of all the fun you've had
    Breaking heads and acting bad
    But now that all those days are done
    Wound up on the other side
    Of a gangster's gun...

    I smell something burning
    Like a flag, like a rubber tire
    What you kids been cooking
    That's got my kitchen full of fire
    Well it's American stew
    'Cause we were sick of the pie
    Blood, white, and blue
    In the blink of an eye
    We'll go to the barn
    And we'll lay down low
    And hide 'til all of the fires go

    Just think of all the fun you've had
    Breaking heads and acting bad
    But now that all those days are done
    Wound up on the other side
    Of a gangster's gun...

    American stew
    'Cause we were sick of the pie
    Blood, white, and blue
    In the blink of an eye
    We'll go to the barn
    And we'll lay down low
    And hide 'til all of the fires go, oh
    American stew
    'Cause we were sick of the pie
    Blood, white, and blue
    In the blink of an eye
    We'll go to the barn
    And we'll lay down low
    And hide 'til all of the fires go, well
    (American stew)
    You been shot
    ('Cause we were sick of the pie)
    Yeah
    (Blood, white, and blue)
    Oh yeah
    (In the blink of an eye
    We'll go to the barn)
    You been shot
    (And we'll lay down low)
    Yeah
    (And hide 'til all of the fires go)
    Whoah, whoah, whoah, whoah
    (American stew)
    You been shot
    ('Cause we were sick of the pie
    Blood, white, and blue
    In the blink of an eye)
    You been shot
    (We'll go to the barn)
    You been
    You been
