FADE IN:

A cute girl, late teens/early 20’s wakes from a seated position among a row of chairs, about a dozen more at her back, all empty. Slowly bringing her head up, she, along with us, begins to see what is in front of her.

Four pairs of shiny black shoes, on what appears to be a small stage . She continues to look up, as she discovers who are in those shoes. Evenly spaced out, one in front, one to the back, one to the right, one to the left. ELY, YAN, DOK and BOGS, all pale and dressed in vintage suits.

It is a stage, adorned with red velvet curtains

LYRICS

This is the opening of the show
So glad you came here tonight

The girl backs up away from the stage, knocking over chairs as she does so.

 

LYRICS

Heard you got lost in the woods again

Whip Back Around On Ely And The Others.

 

LYRICS

Well that makes two of us

The girl turns and runs for the double doors of the viewing room. (Slo-Mo)

 

LYRICS

Take control of your mind
‘Cause we’re living in different worlds

She pulls and pushes on them but they’re locked.

 

LYRICS

Different worlds

The four on stage just stand there and watch as the girl goes for another exit. It’s locked. A third one. Again, locked.

 

LYRICS

It’s just a matter of time
Till we’re living in different worlds

Finally she finds an unlocked door, runs out into the hall.

LYRICS

Over and under again

ECU of Ely looking Into Camera, background hallway going around 360 Degrees.

LYRICS

So now we’re going around and around
The clock strikes five and we howl

Smooth Transition As Camera Now Circles Around The Girl 360 Degrees.

LYRICS

Vermillion eyes wrapped around your face

Camera Stops In Front Of The Girl, the guys POPPING IN behind her just long enough for…

LYRICS

Cloaked in sugar

She looks to her back, no one is there.

LYRICS

Dressed in fiendish flour

She turns back around, they’re standing in front of her.

LYRICS

Waiting at your door

HITCHCOCK SHOT of them standing in the long corridor. (Zoom In/Pull Out)

LYRICS

It’s a version I’ve never heard before

She looks to her back as she runs down the long corridor.

LYRICS

Speak and shuffle your cards

The girl turns back to face the direction she’s running in, yet again there they are in front of her. She stops in her tracks.

LYRICS

I see through your facade

It’s now just Ely.

LYRICS
I’m on to you and now I’m

Going

He POPS OUT. Now it’s Yan who POPS IN, a little farther down the corridor. (Right Side)

LYRICS

Going

He POPS OUT. Now it’s Dok who POPS IN, a little farther down the corridor. (Left Side)

LYRICS

Going

Dok POPS OUT. Now it’s Bogs who POPS OUT, a little farther down the corridor. (Right Side)

LYRICS

Gone

The girl goes for a nearby door, opens it up.

LYRICS

Take control of your mind

From inside the room she locks the door, looks around. There’s only one possible escape route. A square on the wall, resembling a garbage shoot.

LYRICS

‘Cause we’re living in different worlds
Different worlds

She looks back at the doorknob as it is now wiggling…

LYRICS

It’s just a matter of time

She looks at the shoot door again.

JUMPCUT:

She opens it.

LYRICS

Till we’re living in different worlds

She climbs up and inside of it.

LYRICS

Over and under again

INSIDE, the girl crawls through the shoot on hands and knees, In one direction… Then another… And another. Like a mouse in a maze.

DURING INSTRUMENTAL SECTION

Having reached the end the girl opens another square door, this one to crawl out of. She exits head and hands first, finds that she’s now in a basement.

LYRICS

Systems are turning inside out

Sitting on the floor and leaning against the wall to rest the girl glances uo at a round window where the moonlight is coming in.

LYRICS

The end is drawing near

Ely appears in front of the round window, the moonlight in its circular form surrounding him like a rotating tunnel of illumination.

LYRICS

Take control of your mind
‘Cause we’re living in different worlds
Different worlds

The double doors to the viewing room BURST OPEN. The girl enters walking backwards, Ely, Yan, Dok and Bogs moving in towards her. This is the first time they’re not standing in one place, We don’t see their bottom halves but it appears they’re floating.

LYRICS

It’s just a matter of time
Till we’re living in different worlds
Over and under again

The more she backs up the closer she gets to the small stage at her back, until the back of her heel hits it.

LYRICS

Over and over again

Still not turning her back to them she steps up onto the stage to continue to try and distance herself. There’s a pink casket behind her. She doesn’t see it and ends up backing into it.

LYRICS

Over and over again

It pops open. She looks. Lying inside…

It’s her, DEAD!

Shocked, the girl turns back to look at them. They’re holding her corpse horizontally, beginning to stand it up to its feet. She quickly looks back at the casket.

It’s empty.

As soon as she turns back around they have the body directly in front of her. They bring it forward, merging it with the one she now knows to be her soul.

LYRICS

Over and over again

They now all stand on the stage together, heads tilted down looking all dead-like. Simultaneously they look up towards camera.

LYRICS

Over and over again

Camera Pulls Back…

Farther…

Farther…

Leaving The Room…

Continues To Pull Back…

Leaving the Building.

Outside, Still Pulling Back…

A Pair of Wide Doors, Still Pulling Back…

It’s a home.

Still Pulling Back…

A hearse is parked outside.

It’s a funeral home.

FADE OUT:

 

Now that you’ve read the video, have a listen to the song, to see how one becomes the other…:)
