New video for one of the highlights of last year’s Furr. The very literal video (“Her mouth was sewn shut, but her eyes were still wide”) has an O Brother, Where Art Thou? vibe, following the actions of the narrator as he travels the country killing people just to watch them die. Yes, the lyrics are composed entirely of well-worn outlaw cliches (“Then I stole me a horse and I rode it around”). It shouldn’t work, but it does. And that’s the power of a good song: to take dumb lyrics and make them sound awesome.
Check out some “Behind the Scenes” footage after the jump…
