Vid: Guardians of the Galaxy - Holy (remastered)

This is one of the two GotG vids I made back in May/June, now remastered with HD footage! In addition to replacing all the clips with better-quality ones, I also swapped out a few of them and recut a couple parts of the vid, so it's a little different now than it was. (The old one is still on Youtube if you want to compare. Original DW entry here.)

Fandom: Guardians of the Galaxy 1&2
Song: Holy
Artist: Frightened Rabbit
Summary: He may have been your father, boy, but he wasn't your daddy. Parenthood, family, and divinity, by way of Peter Quill.

Lyrics:

While you read to me from the riot act way on high, high,
Clutching a crisp New Testament, breathing fire, fire.
Will you save me the fake benevolence, I don't have time
I'm just too far gone for the telling, lost my pride

I don't mind being lonely,
So leave me alone.
You're acting all holy,
Me, I'm just full of holes.

Well I can dip my head in the river,
Cleanse my soul, oh.
I'll still have the stomach of a sinner,
Face like an unholy ghost.
Will you save me all the soliloquies?
Paid my fines,
I'll be gone before my deliverance.
Preach what you like

Cause I don't mind being lonely,
So leave me alone.
You're acting all holy,
Me, I'm just full of holes.

Full of holes.

I don't mind being lonely,
So spare me the brimstone.
Acting all holy,
When you know I'm full of holes.

Don't mind being lonely,
Don't need to be told.
Stop acting so holy,
I know I'm full of holes.

Full of holes.

I don't mind being lonely,
Won't you leave me alone?
Are you, oh, so holy,
That I'll never be good enough?

Don't care if I'm lonely,
Cause it feels like home.
I won't ever be holy,
Thank God I'm full of holes.

Full of holes.

Just wanted to say that "Holy" is one of my new favorite songs thanks to the original version of this vid. :) Love the remastered version, too.

Yes and yes! It captures the sadness and angst (but also, I think, the hope) so well.
