At first I thought it was too reminiscent of "Mouth Like A Magazine" just with a static-y background instead of a white one, although the images help to set it apart a little. Though I'm afraid the images make it look like a narrow anti-war video instead of the broader message of embracing the craziness of rejecting things the world finds acceptable; see interview:

Quote:
The main element of the song lyrically is that the things that make sense in the world don't make sense spiritually and vice-versa. The narrator of the song is observing all these ideas that most people find acceptable and he's wondering what in the world is wrong with everyone. The less sense the world makes, the more sense the spiritual world makes and these ideas begin to invert. He's seeing people pledge their allegiance to a country and thinking "This makes no sense, shouldn't our allegiance belong to something bigger?" He's seeing people live their lives for themselves and thinking, "Shouldn't life be about giving up yourself?" The narrator starts to feel like everyone is crazy except him and the world thinks that he's the crazy one so he embraces it and says that now that he sees things differently he sees the way. The person he's talking about seeing on the other side is Jesus.

But regardless it was one of my favorite tracks off the album and they're always fun to watch.

Very punk song. Kinda different from the typical Showbread song. Dig it. Can't deny that the band has always been unique.

Definitely my favorite Showbread song. Glad to see a music video made out of it (and an awesome one at that).

I really liked this actually. I'm guessing they made it themselves again? But yes, good effort.
