Lyrics
We want your information
We will do what we must
But not here, or in front of people, or on the phone

We're not all blood sucking leeches
For we all have families too
But that don't mean that we really
love them or that we don't
'Cause I can't love you
And you can't love me
But I can love you
And you can love me
Love me

It's not a confrontation
(all across the world, open your mouth)
We are here because we are broke
(give us what we want, we've had enough)
But we don't expect a hand out or anything
(soul soul soul soul soul)
'Cause I can't help you
And you can't help me
but I can help you
And you can help me
I can help you
You can help me
I can help you
You can help me
Help me
Help you
It's not an impossible situation
Help me
It's not an impossible situation
Help you
It's not an impossible situation
Help me
It's not an impossible situation

I know there is doubt we can do this but I can help you

I love the editing style and clip choices, how the similarities are pulled together and pulled apart. I want to be in a fake marriage that grows into something real with this vid.

That was hypnotically pulled together. I loved the pacing and push/pull feel throughout the vid. Really gorgeous work.

Fantastic! Loved the editing, the song fit perfectly! Made me looking forward to season 2 even more. You captured the show wonderfully.

Absolutely stunning editing. Loved the use of what I'm assuming are promo, especially the russian roulette game. As others have said before me, the song was absolutely perfect.

UM WOW WOW WOW WOWWWWWWWWWW. Bullet to the head editing. BRILLIANT SONG CHOICE THAT CAPTURES THE MOOD SOOO PERFECTLY. And those promos!!! Help. I'm playing this over and over and I have too many fav parts to choose from but for some reason 3:21 with Henry's paper "The Revolutionary War - America won" over the lyric "it's not an impossible situation" just gets me every time. BEING A COLD WAR SPY IS DIFFICULT! Love the blow job section too...

Reaaaally enjoyed this, especially the way you weaved the promos in. Song choice kept on giving too—I wasn't ready for it to be just this good!

DEAR FESTIVIDDER THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WORDS TO EXPRESS THE AMOUNT OF JOY THIS VID BRINGS ME AND HOW MANY TEARS I HAVE WHEN I WATCH IT BECAUSE IT IS LITERALLY THE MOST AMAZING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN.

I don't even know where to start. The pacing. The editing. The clips. The perfect, perfect song choice, both lyrically and tonally. (We want your information? We will do what we must? JESUS STICK A FORK IN ME.) But the way the song builds and grows in intensity, with the way you edited, I felt like I was being ever so slowly sucked in until I was transfixed 110% on the action and the story. Amazing work. And beautiful, smart use of season 2 promos, which add to the haunting nature of the entire vid as a whole.

There are just too many parts of this that I want to talk about (THE RED! THE BATHED GUN IN RED I KNOW THAT'S A PROMO BUT JUST KILL ME NOW.) This was just masterful, it really showed the true story of what it means to be a spy in the Cold War, what it means for the people involved, their families, and even the people who are outside of it all. It was more than just a character study, it was like a masterclass in what the show is really about underneath all the awesome plot lines and many, many wigs.

I AM SORRY THIS IS INCOHERENT BUT I AM JUST SO OVERWHELMED WITH FEELINGS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS IS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE IMAGINED. I WANT TO HAVE BABIES WITH THIS VID. I WANT TO CUDDLE WITH THIS VID AND FEED IT CHOCOLATE. I WANT TO HUG YOU FOREVER FOR MAKING IT.

Wow. Every emotion from the first season just came flying back. Thesis of the show, right here.
