Martin Weisz, who directed the water-centric clip for "The Dolphin's Cry
," also helmed this video, which finds Kowalczyk singing in a grimy bathroom while a riot erupts in the streets outside. The rain is a temporary panacea for the violence until a bomb explodes and engulfs the band in flames. The singer wakes from the nightmare and, relieved, washes his face in the sink.
Kowalczyk described the video as having a "Bladerunner
, end of the world, apocalyptic, kind of feel, which for the time we were making it really felt like the world that we were living in. Sort of an impending kind of disaster, which really did come pretty radically a few years later."
