LYRICS Ooh, Devon, won't go to heaven She's just another lost soul about to be mine again Leave her, we will receive her It is beyond your control, will you ever meet again Devon, no longer living Who had been rendered unwhole as a little child She was taken and then forsaken You will remember it all, let it blow your mind again Devon lies beyond this portal Take the word of one immortal Sever, now and forever You're just another lost soul about to be mine again See her, you'll never free her You must surrender it all and give life to me again Fire, all you desire As she begins to turn cold and run out of time You will shiver till you deliver You will remember it all, let it blow your mind again Devon lies beyond this portal Take the word of one immortal (Chorus) X2 Ooh, Devon, no longer living Who had been rendered unwhole as a little child She was taken and then forsaken You will remember it all, let it blow your mind again Chorus: Give your soul to me for eternity Release your life to begin another time with her End your grief with me, there's another way Release your life, take your place inside the fire with her

LYRICS INFORMING NARRATIVE    The lyrics does support the narrative of the music The music video is entirely about how Devon committed suicide and why she did, it also talks about what happened to her afterwards. But the main theme in the music video is the persuasion for Devon to take her life. “Devon, Won’t go to heaven” This is supported in the narrative as she committed suicide. In the Bible, it states that people do not go to heaven if they kill themselves. The narrative supports this because instead of Devon to progress, she is covered in blood and looks tortured, likely to have occurred in her time in hell.

LYRICS INFORMING NARRATIVE  The song has been written in such a way that is persuading David’s character to kill himself to be reunited with Devon. This can be taken to be generalised, asking for more people to take their own lives along with Devon.   The entire chorus has been written in this way. When David is singing, he is playing himself and not his character, so this can mean that David is instructing his character to take his life with Devon. This is why David is seen covered in blood and his character is not. David is saying that is his character wants to see Devon again, he would have to do what she did too. The video supports this what he places a gun against his head. “Give your soul to me for eternity, Release your life to begin another time with her. End your grief with me, there’s no other way. Release you life, take your place inside the fire with her”

CONTROVERSY   The song meaning it self if very controversial. Most people accept the song but the topic of suicide is controversial on it’s own. There have been numerous debates about whether suicide should be accepted or not. One side of the argument states that a person has the right to do what ever they please with their body and the other side says that all life is precious and killing anything including yourself is wrong.  The lyrics are also controversial as it seems like the singer wants to encourage suicide. Of course this isn’t the case, it can be interpreted that way. The line “Take your life with me”  The video also depicts two acts of potential lethal behaviour. One is the female’s hanging, and the other is David’s character having a gun in his mouth.

FRAGMENTED PRESENTATION OF THE BODY  In the music video, the female is presented in sections rather than as a whole. Maybe this means that she is worth less as a whole being. Or perhaps this was done to highlight the features used to identify a corpse. Blue skin, dead eyes and broken lips. These parts are focused on as decomposition is more prominent at these parts after death. Makes the audience focus on these feature. It helps the audience better understand her condition

BEHAVIOUR    The music video is very dramatic. It’s an exciting, emotional, or unexpected event. Usually white artist centre their videos around drama, they talk about the true nature of what I’s like to be human. They centre around hardships people face in specific scenarios or in general. The video is very dramatic as the audience is shown how the character deals with the fact that someone he knows has just committed suicide. We get to see his actions and eventually him attempting to take his own life. The music video is purely about suicide. So much so that the beginning and end of the video are messages with contact information to the suicide hotline.

CROSS CUTTING  Cross cutting happens throughout the music video, just like any other music video. The scenes will go from shots of the band performing to the narrative and vice versa.  The different scenes when isolated makes no sense, only when edited together in the video does it actually make sense. The footage only works when as a whole rather than in individual scenes. A common practice in modern music videos
