Full StoryMichael and Janet are playing games and having fun in a space ship.
NotesMark Romanek has said this video is an attempt at “epic minimalism”. He then went on to say “I feel Michael is the greatest entertainer in the world, and I feel his fan’s have come to expect something quite epic and grand with his video’s. So I applied the epic minimalism and, a lot of the sounds in the song put me in mind of science fiction, so I came up with the idea that Michael and Janet have their very own super sleek space ship, so they can just get away, and take a joy-ride in space, to escape all the pressures the song is describing”.

Lyrics

I'm tired of injustice I'm tired of the schemes
I'm tired of disgusting so what does it mean baby
kicking me down I got to get up
as jacked as it sound the whole system sucks baby

Peek in the shadow come into the light
you tell me I'm wrong then you better prove you're right
you're selling out souls but I care about mine
I've got to get stronger and I won't give up the fight

With such confusions don't it make you wanna scream
your bash abusing vicitimize within the scheme
you try to cope with every lie they scutinize
somebody please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it
