The video is a composite of recordings outside of Disneyland near Los Angeles. It projects the state of mind of a temporary happiness, where the thrill of a ferris wheel ride becomes a pacifier and impedes of never achieving fulfillment, never progressing, and never reaching the yearned-for crescendo.
