Music video[edit]

The music video for the song is an animated video directed and animated by Motomichi Nakamura. It is available online, on the enhanced US CD single, and on the Silent Shout: An Audio Visual Experience CD/DVD. Motomichi wrote about the video, "The animation starts with a girl that wakes up from a long sleep and starts searching for a sacred apple. At the end of a nightmarish story the girl is able to find her apple but only to discover the real price that she has to pay for it."
