Music video[edit]

The music video for "Inhale" was directed by Gregory Dark and produced by Sharlotte Blake (executive) and Patti Tessel (line).It shows the band members as homeless people in their daily activities. Corey pushes a trolley containing clothes, Jim plays the guitar on the street for money, Joel collects donations, Josh rummages in trash cans for food, and Shawn eats food given to him by roadside vendors. Towards the second chorus the band is seen in white tuxedos ,performing in front of an audience. Shawn is seen playing a double bass instead of a normal bass guitar. At the start of the chorus, the band changes to their shaggy unkempt look and their suits are frayed and torn. As Corey starts the chorus,the people in the audience start disappearing one by one. After the final chorus the band is seen back at their area around a fire. It is revealed that the performance is just an imagination. The video ends with the band going off to sleep, with Corey looking one last time at the fire.
