The video is a collage, using a combination of original footage and borrowed/repurposed material. Some of the footage used in the video is originally from:
L'Etoile de Mer (1928, Man Ray)
Das Triadische Ballet (1922, Oskar Schimmeler, performed in 1970 by Bavaria Atelier GmbH)
Breaking Glass at School (1978, Matthew Dorn)
U.S. Atomic Bomb Tests (1940s-1950s, government footage)
If you could hold time in your hand, would it all just slip away?
Mixing night into day, we know how this all ends
We've seen all this before
Time spirals and it links
But seldomly dead-ending
If you could hold time in your hand, and formed a tightened fist
Could we run in reverse?
We know how this all ends
And will you come to regret what hasn't happened yet?
Or will you use the power to try and stop the worst?
If you lived in reverse you'd see the end come first
You'll know - oh no
At the end of time I climb into the womb
The only place where I can get away from truth
