Music video

This video is based on the Norwegian short film "A Year Along the Abandoned Road", directed by Morten Skallerud in 1991. Time lapse photography was used to make the video, 50,000 times the normal speed; the original film was 12 minutes long and was filmed over 105 days, and edited to fit the song length and scenes with the band members.

The subject of the short film was Børfjord, a semi-deserted fisherman's village in Northern Norway.

The opening sequence features a poem written by King Olav V of Norway:

:When I look back:I see the landscape:That I have walked through:But it is different

:All the great trees are gone:It seems there are :Remnants of them

:But it is the afterglow:Inside of you

:Of all those you met:Who meant something in your life

:Olav Rex:August 1977
