Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was made and released on 10 December 2008.[4] In the video, the group are homeless people and one of them has "fallen down". He is seen throughout the video lying on the ground while others come up and look at him, but do not offer a hand. By the end, a woman (Karoliina Kallio) tends to him and angel's wings appear on her back.
