L.E.S. Artistes
What I'm searching for
to tell it straight, I'm trying to build a wall
Walking by myself
down avenues that reek of time to kill
If you see me keep going
be a pass by waver
Build me up, bring me down
just leave me out you name dropper
Stop trying to catch my eye
I see you good you forced faker
Just make it easy
You're my enemy you fast talker

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe
I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe


What am I here for
I left my home to disappear is all
I'm here for myself
Not to know you
I don't need no one else
Fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later
You don't know me
I am an introvert an excavator
I'm duckin' out for now
a face in dodgy elevators
Creep up and suddenly
I found myself
an innovator

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe
I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe


Change, change, change,
I want to get up out of my skin
tell you what
if I can shake it
I'm 'a make this
something worth dreaming of

I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up
If I could stand up mean for all the things that I believe




Notes: Made for [personal profile] khaiell as a pinch hit for festivids. Many thanks to elynross and kuwdora for beta and encouragement.

Brilliant work! I've been looking forward to downloading this to my permanent collection. I love Sarah Connor, and I'm delighted with her portrayal in this vid.

This is completely the Sarah Connor vid I have always wanted. Your editing is fabulous; it makes my heart clench. And then want to run and do a rewatch. It's just fantastic.

Thank you ever so much.

This is fucking fantastic and so very touching, mainly because of how you use "I can say I hope it will be worth what I give up". Great editing!

Thank you! The 'worth what I give up' refrain was really what drew me to the song for Sarah, and I'm so glad it worked for you.

Thank you ever so much! The song just really cried out to be a Sarah Connor vid, didn't it? [OMG, her hair! SO FLUFFY.]

...so apparently I haven't commented on this before. It's really great. The part where the lyrics go "change change" and Arnold is cutting open his arm gives me chills.

And apparently I haven't replied to this comment yet! Sorry, my bad. Thank you so much for watching -- I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Late as hell to the party, but I can't not tell you how much I love this video. The editing is fantastic, the clips fit the lyrics - I love how the refrain works not only for Sarah but also for Kyle, John, and Dyson. And the line "fit in so good the hope is that you cannot see me later" in combination with those clips (both Sarah getting beat up in a mental institution and her literally turning into a Terminator) gives me chills every time I wacth this - which is often. As does the collage of her and Kyle yelling at cameras. Just awsome.
