The song's lyric video was helmed by Leto under his directorial alter-ego moniker Bartholomew Cubbins. It shows the frontman in pitch black silhouette performing the song against the backdrop of a Los Angeles sunset. Leto explained that it was a last minute piece of filming, "There we were. Deadline city. Once again," he said. "A lyric video was needed. We were way past deadline and without any real options in sight. We were getting desperate. Having just finished 'Do Or Die
' and already shooting / editing 'City of Angels' there wasn't much time to get one in order — especially one worthy to share with you all. So I said f--- it, grabbed my camera, went up to the hills of Hollywood and shot. We came back with this."
Leto continued, "It's mostly one take, a couple cutaways. But very simple overall and sometimes that's for the best … We got really lucky with some incredibly gorgeous light and maybe some magic from an owl that kept us company during shooting. If you look close you can even see him fly right by me. Really nice to be able to share such a beautiful sunset with you all."
