https://youtu.be/DCkbfyk6XGc This was the second single from the album «Lifelines».
This video is based on a 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 quote at the beginning of the video was taken from a poem written by the king of Norway.
