Are we going to ignore the fact that this is a work of art, all of the small details continue to amaze me I can’t stop watching this! All of the blue tones, the eyes when she saw herself turning into something she didn’t want to be. The lonely no more how awesome the shadow of beezlebub when he’s growing. How they dance is magnetic and an excellent representation of the feeling. Mothica really do be pulling through with amazing lyrics, sound, cinematography, dance everything you can think of also she’s so pretty 😩 also I love beezlebubs expressions! 💙

Everything is blue 💙
Her flask
Her earrings
Her eyes
And she’s dancing with a metiphorical demon in the middle of the night and he’s bluuuuuuue bluuuuuuue

This is why it's so important to have a support system. Recovery is hard work, and doing it alone is almost impossible. We all need someone who can help intervene when our demons try to drag us into the deep end. I hope y'all stay safe, especially now that we're all isolated because of the pandemic. We're stronger together 💓

The way is this is literally a whole cinematic masterpiece that displays the authenticity and history of what Mothica had to go through. And in such a creative way too!! Now she is shining!! 💙

This is the most underrated thing I've ever seen, it has a wonderful message, the art, contrasting colours and symbolism are so well executed and the song is so beautiful

Well, they tried their best to warn me (warn me)
That you would only turn me blue (turn me blue)
But nothing could have stopped me (nothing could stop me)
From falling right into you (into you)

Hold me down
I'll do anything you tell me to

Baby, when I blackout
I'm not coming back down
I've always been my own worst enemy
Blame it on my own anxiety

I can barely be around you (be around you)
It's the hardest thing I'll ever do (ever do)
Bound to live without you (live without you)
'Cause I've got better things to do (things to do)

Let me out
After everything you put me through

Baby, when I blackout
I'm not coming back down
I've always been my own worst enemy
Blame it on my own anxiety

I'm losing my magic
Not thinking, calm me down
In love with my madness
Until I drown

Baby, when I blackout
I'm not coming back down
I've always been my own worst enemy
Blame it on my own anxiety

I think this is my favorite song off of the album, mostly because of my battle with addiction, it really hits home for me. About to be 1 year 6 months sober though 🥳🥳

I love the story telling in this video and production put into this. The make up, costumes, props, lighting-pairs so well with her song/performance.
I feel like music video aren’t made like this as often lately. So lovely to see all the work and artists vision coming together.
