FADE IN:

Planet Earth against the darkness of space gets Larger and Larger As It Comes From Background To Foreground Of Frame…

And begins to morph into countless human images within its sphere shape, every now and then the Yin Yang symbol appearing…

Now Halfway To Foreground, the Chili Peppers are in the center of this chaos of humanity, Anthony in front SINGING… (To Camera – Speed Up so that he ends VERSE in Foreground)

LYRICS

(Anthony Singing)

Easily

Lets get carried away

EXT. ATOP ROCKY MOUNTAIN – DAY

From Extreme Close Up of buzz clippers as they shave the rest of Anthony’s scalp bare, We Fall Back To Reveal the rest of the band is bald as well, all in Shaolin monk robes and just standing there like new recruits.

LYRICS

Easily

Lets get married today

From Extreme Close Up From Inside Shaolin Monk’s Mouth We Shoot Out In Reverse High Into The Sky… (Above Rocky Mountain And The Monk With His New Followers, his arms outstretched to his sides)

LYRICS

Shaolin shouted a rose

from his throat

He quickly turns around to them and LIP-SYNCS NEXT VERSE.

LYRICS

(Shaolin monk

lip-syncing)

Everything must go

EXT. ROCKY MOUNTAIN – DAY

From Extreme Wide we discover rocky mountain is beside a powerful sea…

And We Quickly Zoom In on the side of it and find Anthony and the others walking a very narrow trail up the mountain as they each carry two buckets full of water balanced out by poles which rests on the back of their shoulders/necks…

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

A lickin’ stick is thicker

when you break it to show

Everything must go

Camera All-Of-A-Sudden Flips Over 180 Degrees As It Descends Off The Mountain…

And Catches Itself In Mid-Air, now on Anthony and the others hanging upside down in lotus position as waves CRASH on the rocks near their heads.

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

The story of a woman

on the morning of a war

Remind me if you will

Exactly what we’re fighting for

Camera Shoots Back Up Along Rocky Side While It Flips Back Over…

LYRICS

Calling

Calling

For something in the air

And Heads Inside A Crack, which turns into the interior of the mountain…

And We Start To Speed Through It…

LYRICS

Calling

Calling

I know you must be there

Until We Enter A Cave, bats hanging upside down on the ceiling…

LYRICS

Easily

Lets get caught in a wave

Their WHITE GLOWING EXCREMENT dropping down upon…

Anthony and the others, as they just sit there and meditate…

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

Easily

We’ll both get caught in a cave

EXT. NATURAL HOT SPRINGS – SIDE OF MOUNTAIN – DAY

From Extreme Close Up of Anthony, water to neck level…

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

Shaolin shakin’

for the sake of his soul

We Fall Back To Show the other three by his side in the streaming water up to their necks as well, all looking straight ahead while they try to concentrate…

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

Everything must go

Camera Floats Down Under Water To Discover what threatens their concentration…

A dozen naked Chinese women, as if they were fish, feeding off the dead skin of their nude bodies…

LYRICS

Lookin’ mighty tired of

all the things that you own

Everything must go

EXT. ROCKY MOUNTAIN TOP – NIGHT

Near a camp fire, the Shaolin monk goes along as he stares face-to-face into the eyes of each of the Chili Peppers…

LYRICS

I can’t tell you who to idolize

You think it’s almost over

but it’s only on the rise

He shoots both his hands up over his head while looking up towards the shifting clouds above…

Camera Shoots Up In Reverse On Him As LIGHTNING Strikes Down Upon Him…

LYRICS

Calling

Calling

For something in the air

Then Camera Shoots Back Down On The Chili Peppers And EXPLODES INTO WHITE LIGHT…

LYRICS

Calling

Calling

I know you must be there

From That WHITE LIGHT, Four Cells, (the Chili Peppers) Morph Into Babies…

Then Progress In Fast-Forward Into Children…

Teens…

Adults…

Senior Citizens…

Skeletons…

LYRICS

The story of a woman

On a morning of a war

Remind me if you will

Exactly what we’re fighting for

These Images Then Morph Into A Pack Of Wolves Running Round And Round…

Which Morph Into A Crowd Of Humans As They Come And Go Among City Streets…

And We Shoot Up Above Them For Birds-Eye-View And Continue To Ascend In Reverse Until We Are Once Again Above Planet Earth In The Vastness Of Space…

LYRICS

Throw me to the wolves

because there’s order in the pack

Throw me to the sky

because I know I’m coming back

And Again The Planet Morphs Into Images Of Humankind, mostly wars and such…

EXT. HUGE OUTDOOR CONCERT – DAY

The Chili Peppers perform on stage for a MASSIVE crowd, still bald and still in their monk robes.

LYRICS

(Anthony singing)

Shaolin shakin’

for the sake of his soul

Everything must go

Lookin’ mighty tired of

all the things that you own

Everything must go

The story of a woman

On the morning of a war

Remind me if you will

Exactly what we’re fighting for

Calling

Calling

For something in the air

Calling

 Calling

I know you must be there

I don’t want to be your little

 research monkey boy

The creature that I am

Is only going to destroy

Throw me to the wolves

 because there’s order in the pack

Thorw me to the sky

because I know I’m coming back

Anthony steps away from the mic/mic stand and just takes a seat right there on stage and starts to meditate…

FADE OUT: 

Now that you’ve enlightened yourself with the video,

have a listen to see one become the other…
