Better Off Dead

  • This song is about a depressed female, whose unhappiness is so much that she's about to end her life. Her depression is visualized during the video by means of a haunted house sucking a girl into the depths of its basement. "I think this video does an amazing job at capturing the concept of the song," said vocalist Kellin Quinn. "I thought it would be interesting to look at the idea of depression as being trapped and feeling helpless, and I think the video captures that in a unique way. I'm getting more involved in the ideas for our videos and I really enjoy that part!"
