Complex Magazine premiered the clip in Canada, where singer Emmons offered, “…I asked our director Dane Collison to go out and find footage of struggle, violence, and chaos, because I wanted viewers to have to watch the things that happen in our world that most of us chose to ignore.  The message in this song isn’t as black and white as equating God with man.  It is about power, materialism and the things we do. The way we feel as human beings, as we strive to achieve some sense of heaven.”
