"Over My Head"

"Miserable" is a song from Lit's album A Place in the Sun. It was the third single released from the album.

Music video[edit]

The song had an accompanying music video, directed by Evan Bernard and produced by Keeley Gould, in which the band is portrayed performing the song on and around a huge Pamela Anderson, who wears a white bikini and platform shoes. The video begins by panning over Pamela's body then reveals the band performing on her butt as she lays on her stomach. They are later seen hiking up her thigh and she waves at them. With her foot poised in the air Lit stand upon her platform heels, where Pamela shakes them slightly. This is followed by them performing on her head, her knee, back to her butt, and walking across her breasts. The giantess begins swaying to the music as the band performs around her. Shortly afterword she starts eyeing them as she holds them in her hand. The band goes back to performing in front of her rather than on her before it cuts to her laying down and the band upon her face.

While they perform on her face one of the guitarist is standing on her lips. She opens her mouth and he falls down her gullet and is swallowed. The other band members panic and run from her as the giantess chases after them. She easily catches the drummer and dangles him in front of her. He is seen raising his hands in pleading right before she eats him. Her next target is the second guitarist who is hiding behind a speaker. She creeps of behind him and slurps him into her mouth. She chews him up and spits out one of his shoes. Finally only the lead singer is left, who she quickly grabs. She gives him one final look before tossing him into her mouth and eating him. Afterwards she happily strolls off and the video ends.

The giant woman devouring the all male band is a metaphor that women as "maneaters."
