Metric just released their music video for “Gimme Sympathy” and it’s really cool. Frank Borin directs the band in a long take with each band member switching places with one another.

[lyrics by Metric]

Get hot
Get too close to the flame
Wild open space
Talk like an open book
Sign me up
Got no time to take a picture
I’ll remember someday
All the chances we took

We’re so close to something better left unknown
We’re so close to something better left unknown

I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all this is gone
Who would you rather be
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh seriously
You’re gonna make mistakes you’re young
Come on baby play me something,
Like here comes the sun

Don’t go
Stay with the all unknown
Stay away from the hooks
All the chances we took

We’re so close to something better left unknown
We’re so close to something better left unknown

I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all this is gone
Who would you rather be
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh seriously
You’re gonna make mistakes you’re young
Come on baby play me something,
Like here comes the sun
