It's basically an indictment of our failure to evolve or make our voices heard beyond the short term. (at least that's my opinion).

Either way... it's one of the most polished music videos from a group who is literally just starting out.

By the way— their live shows totally rock and they will be back in Portland December 29 at Crystal Ballroom.
