Music video[edit]

The video is entirely in sepia tone. It shows the band driving around in a car through L.A. with various civilians carrying crosses around the city with blindfolds on. The video cuts to clips of the band performing in the desert as well as Graffin walking through the city. It ends with the civilians chanting "one nation, under god" while standing in a row.
