    This video focuses in on Wolfwood mainly. As such it has giant spoilers for his section of the story. The storyline works like this: A rift forms between Vash and Wolfwood for obvious reasons, Vash and Wolfwood actually end up fighting each other, they reconcile, they go after the real problem: Wolfwood's old mentor, and then it goes on from there.

    A tourniquet is a device used to cut off the flow of blood to a limb in order to stop it from bleeding a person to death. But I don't think it's meant in a literal sense in this video, more like cutting oneself off from real life or emotion in order to survive.

    I wanted to capture the emotion of this song and that is why I chose Wolfwood and Evanescence's version of Tourniquet. (Tourniquet is originally a Soul Embraced song).

    The title credits use the very beginning to "Before the Dawn" by Evanescence.

    As the Shapeshifter site is not currently available, I will put the lyrics here until it is:

    I tried to kill the pain
    But only brought more (so much more)
    I lay dying and I'm pouring...
    Crimson regret and betrayal

    I'm dying
    Praying
    Bleeding
    And screaming
    Am I too lost... to be saved?
    Am I too lost?

    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation
    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation

    Do you remember me?
    Lost for so long
    Will you be on the other side?
    Will you forget me?

    I'm dying
    Praying
    Bleeding
    And screaming
    Am I too lost... to be saved?
    Am I too lost?

    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation
    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation

    (Return to me salvation)
    (I want to die!)

    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation
    My God, my tourniquet
    Return to me salvation

    My wounds cry for the grave
    My soul cries for deliverance
    Will I be... denied?
    Christ, tourniquet, my suicide.

    (Return to us salvation)

    I always appreciate comments and opinions. Take care and I hope you enjoy this video.
