Trigger the Landslide

These are the lyrics for the song and my interpretation of them:

Cue defeat
And foreswear pride
All our instincts are cast aside
From the peaks
To way down low
Bleed an ego like mine
I’ve been there once or twice
And triggered the landslide
Leave all that we find
I repeat
And dignify
All that deems a reply
I’ve lived it once or twice
And triggered the landslide
Leave all that we find
No matter, no mind
Bleed it dry
Your beating heart and my bleeding hands
Remain all entwined
Your beating heart and my bleeding hands
Remain all entwined
Your beating heart and my bleeding hands
Remain all entwined
Your beating heart and my bleeding hands
Remain all entwined
Knowing the song is about ego, my interpretation of the lyrics is how giving into fears and admitting defeat can cause a “landslide” effect that sends one into a spiral of depression and complete loss of confidence. I believe that this interpretation thematically works with my video concept; the miners are the self-conscious thoughts, chipping away confidence until they unleash evil- the embodiment of self-destrucive thought.
