Submit Question
Q: What is the meaning behind the Bird of Prey music video? I think I know it, but I want to know the true meaning, from the bands perspective.
A: Sure thing. The video's basic concept actually came before the lyrics themselves: It centers on the consequences of ignorance/paranoia, both represented by the main character. In trying to lock out the dangers of the OUTside world (mentioned on the radio), he fails to notice that he's locking himself IN with the most obvious danger (the fire). Gotta love metaphors. Thanks for your question!
