The song’s lyrics change from “I am a human being/ Capable of doing terrible things” to “I am a human being/ Capable of doing beautiful things.”
Lead singer Aaron Bruno said in a press release, “I think that everyone can relate to negative feelings and that realization of the dark side to humanity, which unfortunately we see too much of around us at times. But then there’s the other side we find in beauty, positivity and love that is ultimately more powerful. I started to change the lyric during our live shows and it was natural to want to record this new version of the song.”
The cinematic video takes place on the beach where dark images, like a crow and an eerie mermaid, mix with more hopeful images, like a cross between a robot and a spaceman holding a purple light orb.
AWOLNATION are currently in the middle of their summer tour, which will keep them on the road through July.
