The video weaves shots of the band playing in with a narrative about a young boy who runs away from home due to his father’s abuse of his mom. The boy grows up to be a professional boxer who vents his anger in the ring. One day, his father sees pictures of his son online. Showing obvious remorse, the father goes to meet his son and ask for forgiveness. The video culminates in a powerful and heart-wrenching conclusion.
Singer Ryan Kirby has stated that the song’s core message is that of forgiveness. He also called the video “our most emotionally intense music video to date.”
