Crawling

I need to get this damn song out of my head! I was listening to Linkin Park's "Crawling" and thought there were strange similarities to Soul Calibur's Siegfried. As suxh, I decided to write this crappy little music video script. Bear in mind I've never seen the real music video to "Crawling" so any similarities between mine and the original are accidental. If you don't like it, well hard cheese.


(Warbling sounds begin as Siegfried fades into view against a black background)

(Music starts. Siegfried looks around him and sees freeze frame images of when he slew his father, when he acquired Soul Edge, and when he became Nightmare)

Siegfried: Crawling in my skin, these wounds, they will not heal!!
Fear is how I fall, confusing what is rea-a-a-l!!

(Siegfried hangs his head as Nightmare and Mitsurugi appear behind him, glaring at him. They fade away as Siegfried begins singing.)

Siegfried: (looking down at his hands) There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface. Consuming, confusing.
(puts his face in his hands and the eye of Soul Edge appears behind him) This lack of self control I fear is never ending. Controlling, (the eye fades away) I can't seem to find myself again. My wallls are closing i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-n.

(Misturugi and Nightmare fade in and start rapping): Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take. (fade out)

Siegfried: (looks up) I've felt this way before. (balls his hands into fists) So insecu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-r-r-r-r-r-e!!
(looks back at his hands, now covered in blood) Crawling in my skin, these wounds, they will not heal!
(looks away in anguish) Fear is how I fall, confusing what is real!

(the blood vanishes and Soul Edge appears in his hands)

Siegfried: Discomfort endlessly has pulled itself upon me. Distracting, reacting.
(looks over to see Nightmare appear at his side in the exact same pose looking at him) Against my will I stand beside my own reflection. (looks down at Soul Edge) It's haunting, how I can't seem to find my self again. My walls are closing i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-n.

(Misturugi appears at Siegfried's opposite side and he and Nightmare begin rapping): Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take. (fade out)

Siegfried: I've felt this way before. (drops Sould Edge) So insecu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-e!!
(clutches his head and falls to his knees as Mitsurugi and Nightmare standing mockingly beside him) Crawling in my skin, these wounds, they will not heal!!
(Misturugi and Nightmare vanish and are replaced by Siegfried's father Frederick standing behind him with a slight frown) Fear is how I fall, confusing what is real!!
Crawling in my skin, these wounds, they will not heal!!

(gets up and faces his father only to have the phantom vanish)

Siegfried: (looking afraid) Fear is how I fall, confusing... confusing what is rea-a-a-l!!

(translucent images of Siegfried's face fade in and out as they sing) There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface. Consuming...

Siegfried: Confusing what is rea-a-a-l!!

(Phantom heads appear again) This lack of self control I fear is never ending. Controlling...

Siegfried: Confusing what is rea-a-l!!

(Siegfried looks down and finds Requiem in his hand. He walks off and vanishes as the warbling sounds resume and fade away.)
