I had pitched Mark on a video concept for this song before the pandemic hit. It was going to entail recruiting a sizable percentage of the Louisville population and having them all gather together in close quarters. A celebration of the human connection, if you will. We were making travel plans when the California lockdown happened. So, needless to say, we went back to the drawing board. In the early days of quarantine it seemed like every band was live streaming from their bedroom. And every music video, it seemed, was some sort of riff on Zoom. We wanted to do something that satirized those tendencies but also elevated the human experience of this moment (without it feeling like a bank ad). This is the result of over 50 participants from all over the world, shot and edited in full quarantine (not to mention a hefty VFX process that required me to shoot back plates that matched every video submission using only the small confines of my own home). If there is one thing we tried to communicate with this project it’s that hopefully, one day, we can look back on this strange moment with a bittersweet fondness. Until then, stay home. Stay safe.

*****
Right after the darkness, just before the light
The momentary fit in between
After the darkness, just before the light
And all the ever after in between

After the ashes, just before the dawn
After the young mother cries anew
After every angel whimpers out to sea
And the demons come thundering for you

Blood will always, blood will always be
Nothing less, nothing more grand
Alpha, omega, all the in between
All in all, blood will always be

After the stampede, just before the rush
After the morning bells ring
After all the laughter, just before the tears
Coming washing over you in waves

Blood will always, blood will always be
Nothing less, nothing more grand
Alpha, omega, all the in between
All in all, blood will always be

After the ceasefire, just before the war
After the marching orders fade
After the wax, just before the wane
After all, everything’s in vain

Blood will always, blood will always be
Nothing less, nothing more grand
Alpha, omega, all the in between
All in all, blood will always be
