    This video took me almost a month of work, re-edits, swearing, and a huge amount of coffee. The idea was to use the same method I used with my Blinded by Rainbows video, i.e. use the anime to follow the song. From an "anime" point of view, this video doesn't follow a chronological order, it isn't a character profile, it doesn't tell you the story of fullmetal alchemist. Nevertheless, it tells you the lyrics, or at least it tries to explain what Bruce Springsteen is saying. ^^

    DEVILS AND DUST

    I got my finger on the trigger
    But I don't know who to trust
    When I look into your eyes
    There's just devils and dust
    We're a long, long way from home, Bobbie
    Home's a long, long way from us
    I feel a dirty wind blowing
    Devils and dust

    I got God on my side
    And I'm just trying to survive
    What if what you do to survive
    Kills the things you love
    Fear's a powerful thing, baby
    It can turn your heart black you can trust
    It'll take your God filled soul
    And fill it with devils and dust

    Well I dreamed of you last night
    In a field of blood and stone
    The blood began to dry
    The smell began to rise
    Well I dreamed of you last night, Bobbie
    In a field of mud and bone
    Your blood began to dry
    And the smell began to rise

    We've got God on our side
    We're just trying to survive
    What if what you do to survive
    Kills the things you love
    Fear's a powerful thing, baby
    It'll turn your heart black you can trust
    It'll take your God filled soul
    Fill it with devils and dust
    It'll take your God filled soul
    Fill it with devils and dust

    [Harmonica solo]

    Now every woman and every man
    They wanna take a righteous stand
    Find the love that God wills
    And the faith that He commands
    I've got my finger on the trigger
    And tonight faith just ain't enough
    When I look inside my heart
    There's just devils and dust

    Well I've got God on my side
    And I'm just trying to survive
    What if what you do to survive
    Kills the things you love
    Fear's a dangerous thing
    It can turn your heart black you can trust
    It'll take your God filled soul
    Fill it with devils and dust
    Yeah it'll take your God filled soul
    Fill it with devils and dust

    [Harmonica solo]

    Notes: For the ending, I chose what I think it's the perfect scene to describe this song. We have Ed hitting, and trying to kill, the persons that he loves, as Envy is changing into all his friends, we have all his fears, that in the end kill him.
    For the love/faith part, I chose Rose because she's the one who represents Faith, but still her actions bring the end of Liore and death of 7000 soldiers.

    Feedback is always appreciated.
