  • Comments: This video goes out to several people:

    Fri st to my friend Eric who cheered it on.

    Second to unsent vibes who's video I drew inspiration from.

    Third Sage for his amazing lyrics.

    This video is very different then most..The
    beat timing is almost non-existent but feeling-wise it's
    truly breathtaking in it's own way. Originally planned to be made
    about a year ago ,but, recently resurfaced
    to-do peer-pressure and finding the DVDs on sale. This video has
    no straightforward plot .Instead it revolves around the emotions
    of the characters. Now off to re watch gunslinger girl :)

    [Sage Francis]
    I'd give a twenty one gunshot salute
    With a toy rifle that you bought me but it won't shoot
    And all is well because there's been one too many shots
    The sterile robots want to talk to me about Detox
    Stop the presses, there's been an update
    Delivered via 1:30 AM phone call
    When an only half-informative source talks discretely
    Meet me-- at the family room at the side of the Intensive Care Unit
    Immediately, I'll carry a tune
    The sirens so loud, can't hear my music
    Keep free-- of negative thoughts, everything'll be fine
    We all assume... That it would go back to the way things were
    That it would go back to normal soon
    Saw the moon in a way that I never seen it before
    When I looked up that night into the sky wondering why
    Lookin' for answers, guess I ain't ask right
    I'm guessin most of yall out there know exactly what that's like
    What that's like, now tell me what's that like?

    It's like a whirlwind of emotions that occurs when moms and dads fight
    It's like when a girl grins, an emotion of hers
    That holds your arm, and grabs tight
    Hurl him into the ocean, one of them cold sweat heat flash types
    When(?) extreme fluctuations and temperature changes
    Have been known to crack pipes...
    ...crack pipes...crack pipes...

    Meet me-- half way if i go that extra length just to help your strength
    Meet me-- at the AA meeting, needing to take more then 12 steps
    Bring me to your hiding place, so I can face your vice grip
    I'll chisel every single monkey off your back with this ice pick
    Come meet up with me on the sidelines when the game is over
    Just to say hello, then afterwards, backstage
    To let me know that you enjoyed the show
    And go to grandma's house for Sunday dinner
    Sit at the head of the table, take away the fatal flaw
    you made the day before, I seen you bleed
    Meet me-- on Christmas Eve, we can fight but make up before you leave
    Make visits with the rest of those who rest in pieces on my dreams
    Meet me at the fork in the road where lost souls get indecisive
    Meet me at the crossroads so I can have someone to walk into the light with
