Really surprised at how quick they released this after Angels, but wow, great video, very fitting for the song. I like it!

I like the lake/rain bit. Wicked stuff.

Alas, I have no idea what the video is actually meant to mean? Cant make hear nor tail of what is going on? Very confusing. For a song this powerful I thought they could have had a much better storyline.

I'm glad you said that because if I'm being honest I didn't know what the hell was going on at first.

My theory:

I think the lady with the torch is Kelly/his true love. The scenes with the other women represent him fucking up either with other women or alcohol. She's always been there, watching it all happen from the sidelines, trying to pull him out of it. He wanted out of his debauchery, but couldn't stop even when he wanted to (which I got from scenes where he gave her looks of desperation/sadness). She finally gave up and was going to kill off any hope (her jump into the lake symbolizing killing their relationship). But at the last minute he realized what's important- her. So he finally made an effort saved their relationship.

Or maybe the torch lady isn't directly Kelly. Maybe she symbolizes whatever/whoever was good in his life. Or she could be the symbol of his own hope for things to be better.

I love both videos, I like their strategy releasing two videos in two weeks. Get those songs buzzing before hitting the road in the U.S.!

My thoughts exactly, but you'd have to be a pretty hardcore fan to get that I think. To the uninitiated this is going to be well confusing. It's cool to use metaphors and arty acts and situations but the point is a bit hard to get. It's still great just a bit unclear whereas for instance a similar song like Scars, the 2nd video was clever and got the point across so diectly and more than likely added to the immense success of that song. Totally unrelated but BID is ten times better than Scars because Scars gets a bit repetitive, BID is killer.

Also, WDTAG vid is awesome. Simple and pure rocking out, love it.

That's true. If you aren't aware of Jacoby's personal struggles, then it does look like some random torch lady is stalking him for no apparent reason. But hopefully if the uneducated viewer listens to the lyrics they can make the intellectual leap that she is at least the girl in the song he's singing to?

The video is essentially the lyrics coming to life..like both you guys said..it's not too hard to get what's going on if you actually listen to the lyrics, but yeah it def helps if your a die hard fan. I love it, I think it is one of their more well shot videos and the production values seem pretty high. It's cool to see them do a pretty big video again..and I just love the immense size of that factory/studio that they are performing in. In many ways this video is a statement that P-Roach is as relevant as ever.

Great song/video. The thing is, the connection has so many good songs that it'd be difficult to pick 3-4 singles. I'd love if they make videos for the whole album :P

Watching the behind the scenes video made me appreciate the music video so much more. I just wish Papa Roach didn't release their singles so fast. I feel like all of these great songs are going to be overlooked when it comes to radio airplay or people hearing them, period.

Probably their best album and almost no one knows about it.

I was wondering when Before I Die was going to be released on radio...They did drop their last 2 videos within a couple weeks of eachother, but as far as i know, WDTAG is the only "official" single out at the moment.
