When Mastodon had just released their new "The Hunter" album, I was writing the lyrics of the song "All the Heavy Lifting" into one of those lyrics sites and it just struck me what that song is actually all about. Even so much that it reminded me of the Michel Gondry film "The Science of Sleep" a lot (a lot lot).

Have been walking around with the idea for this video for a couple of weeks and the last two evenings I just sat down and created this :)

All the Heavy Lifting lyrics:

Lift you up again
Give you to the trees
All sounds and visions are
What they ask of me
Let's run fast through the fields,
Over mountaintops
Let's swim through ocean water
And we'll never stop

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

Can you show me
Where to find a stream
I've been told before
That the water's clean
Will you come with me
Two of us can drink
Move quick we've got to hurry,
There's no time to think

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

We didn't come this far
Just to turn around
We didn't come this far
Just to run away

Just ahead
We hear the sound
The sound that gives us
A brand new day

Just close your eyes
And pretend that everything's fine
Just close your eyes
I'll tell you when

Please note: I do not own copyrights of any of the footage or music in this video. However, I do own a legal copy of the film dvd and the album cd (+ bonus dvd) and I suggest you get those too. They are both wonderful pieces of art :)

Please don't take this video down: This is a good opportunity for Mastodon fans to come in contact with an amazing film and The Science of Sleep fans to come in contact with the most awesome band of the last decade.
