Music video[edit]

There is a music video to the song which was shot on Cuba the same year. It was directed by Niklas Fronda and Fredrik Löfberg, Baranga Film/Topaz. Singer Lauri Ylönen is being pulled across the jungle forest floor where he ends up getting very mucky as he jumps into a big pool of swampy mud. The Rasmus have hyper moments during every chorus as they jump around everywhere. Then Lauri is dragged through a lake where all the mud washes off leaving him soaked.

The band's comments[edit]

"Selfish song, which is about choices. I have made up my life like I want it to be, but I'm not under anyone's shoe. It urges people, who just repeat they don't know what to do with their lives, to wake up. The sentence 'my victory is your defeat' is borrowed from Killer's (a Finnish band that The Rasmus have worked with) one song." [1]
