The music video is based on the artwork of Hieronymus Bosch, specifically the painting The Garden of Earthly Delights, which dates to about 1500. That painting is a triptych, with the three panels representing the Garden of Eden, revelers enjoying their time on Earth, and finally, hell. The video follows this theme, with recurrent scenes of the biblical character Adam committing his first (original) sin. It also flashes to numerous pictures of Jesus dying.
Because of the video, many people feel the song is a representation of redemption and the remorse one feels for having sinned.
