Dream Koala says:
“I wrote this song when I woke up from a dream where I was dying in a plane crash. It’s about the fear of not reaching your goals, the fear to die without realizing your dreams. In the lyrics I say, “All these landscapes / I wish I had seen.” So what we see in the video is the whole world representing “these landscapes.” It is somewhere between dream and reality, between death and life. I didn’t want to put a character in it because I wanted people to feel like they were the main character. When I met Adrien Peze and Albin Merle, the two guys who made the video, I told them that I wanted the video to be like if Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life was mixed with the work of Hayao Miyazaki and Moebius, and they made it happen.”
