Music video[edit]

A screenshot of the video.

The music video was first shown at the record release party of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love in 2002, and was available online. It was not widely released until September 23, 2005 on the 2005 re-release of I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love. Scenes featuring the band performing were directed by Marc Debiak for the production company Grey Sky Films. The interspersed scenes containing a storyline similar to the Takashi Miike film Audition were directed by John Armson. It is about a man looking for a spouse and after a series of interviews, he finds a woman. After their first date he tries to find where she lives and apparently cannot find her address. When he returns to his home, he pours himself a drink and after drinking he collapses on the floor. The woman comes out of a doorway. She then proceeds to torture the paralyzed man, putting needles in his chest and below his eye and chopping off his leg.
