It is not just that this video showcases how good this band are as a live act but there is a degree of integrity to the lyrics of the song that are also not lost in translation. the sense of reality and life conveyed in the lyrics are relevant to experience for people who have lived this. There is no sense of romanticism here. Instead it is all about how the hardship of the story told is one that could be, and indeed is, the story for many a man. And has been for this generation and the generation before them. It adds a sense of prophecy to the delivery which corners the worth of the song in a relevant way. the high production values of the video also show in terms of lighting, cross editing and how it is all pieced together. The tracking takes in a number of angles but it holds up as it is all put on show.
