The music video, directed by French filmmaker Erick Ifergan ("Glory Of The 80's
"), was shot in downtown Los Angeles and features Amos singing inside a glass booth as a crowd gathers around. At one point, violence erupts in the streets as she helplessly watches from the safety of the enclosure. In the commentary for her video collection Fade To Red
(2006), Amos explained the clip was a response to the LA riots that broke out earlier in the decade. She recalled filming the video's riot scene:
"The riot scene was incredibly heartbreaking, because people really took their roles on under their skin. And I think people were really able to play out how they felt. Everybody was local, so they all lived through the riots. And there was a lot of tension on the set, because you know, through art, you can play out what you've tucked behind your heart to survive something like the riots. The division that comes between lovers, friends. I liked the sexuality of certain characters, because if you think about the judgment that some women have against other women, there is no compassion in some of those actions. And yet, with other women, there's a true understanding of being made separate. And this woman touched me in a deep way, the woman that you see in the end with the children."
