'Otherside'

How long how long will I slide

Separate my side I don't

I don't believe it's bad

Slit my throat

It's all I ever

 

I heard your voice through a photograph

I thought it up it brought up the past

Once you know you can never go back

I've got to take it on the otherside

 

Centuries are what it meant to me

A cemetery where I marry the sea

Stranger things could never change my mind

I've got to take it on the otherside

Take it on the otherside

Take it on

Take it on

 

How long how long will I slide

Separate my side I don't

I don't believe it's bad

Slit my throat

It's all I ever

 

Pour my life into a paper cup

The ashtray's full and I'm spillin' my guts

She wants to know am I still a slut

I've got to take it on the otherside

 

Scarlet starlet and she's in my bed

A candidate for my soul mate bled

Push the trigger and pull the thread

I've got to take it on the otherside

Take it on the otherside

Take it on

Take it on

 

How long how long will I slide

Separate my side I don't

I don't believe it's bad

Slit my throat

It's all I ever

 

Turn me on take me for a hard ride

Burn me out leave me on the otherside

I yell and tell it that

It's not my friend

I tear it down I tear it down

And then it's born again

 

How long how long will I slide

Separate my side I don't

I don't believe it's bad

Slit my throat

It's all I ever

 

How long I don't believe it's bad

Slit my throat

It's all I ever

Le tournage du clip a eu lieu les 21, 22, 25 et 26 Octobre 1999 à Los Angeles. Le personnage est joué par l'acteur Justin Starling. Il représente Paris et Berlin en 1900. On y retrouve l'inspiration surréaliste de Bunuel, Dali, Man Ray.Il a été tourné en noir et blanc, alors que la couleur devait être plus présente, seulement certaines choses ressortent en couleur (Flea et ses cheveux rose fluo). Le dragon représente un diable pour l'église, mais c'est aussi l'emblème du peuple chinois. Le personnage essaye de voler avec de fausses ailes (le rêve de voler par soi-même symbolise une force psychique forte). Les producteurs du film sont Jonathan Deyton et Valéria Faris.

"C'est assez paradoxal, mais la musique triste me rend heureux et me procure du bien-être."
