In case you can't understand anything:
Kestrels breed,
Looking further than I can see
Without tact to read,
She'd take a shine to me
Beacon don't fly too high
Beacon don't fly too high

For all your time,
Playful crime in rain
Worth it being cold,
Roofing for the lanes
A lesson lost again
A lesson lost again

Cute but I'll take the bus,
With fees and favours gone
Cracks in savers pass,
And a white that sometimes shone
Wanton borrowed gun
Wanton borrowed gun

Kestrels breed,
Looking further than I can see
Without tact to read,
She'd take a shine to me
Beacon don't fly too high
Beacon don't fly too high

In satanism one of their rituals is swallowing other people's spit standing in a circle as they are doing in this video. Every music video has an agenda.

Author bywayofthenorth ( ago)
maybe the message of the video is when you have enough age to leave the house and go to live on your own, in the real world. the crown of around her maybe represent 'family' they doing her a farewell (thats maybe is a goodbye) because you see she's crying at the end of the video, she's scarred because she's alone now, in her own, to do with her life what she want.... something new that she never has do...

She doesn't deserve I am doing to her. I don't want to hurt her any more. feels like dying. I can't afford to take the time right now. feels like dying...

I always interpreted this to mean: This is the night before the main character leaves for college or Uni or to live in the big city, and her closest group of friends is staying behind in their small town. They all know it will never be the same when she leaves. They want to do something that will bind themselves together forever, so they conduct this series of rituals they read about in an old witchcraft book they got from the local library. They stay up all night and go wild, eventually taking her to the bus stop to say goodbye.

Well, i'm open for all types of EDM music nowdays, from Gangster Trap to PewPew Dubstep, also for the more Underground sounds like Holy Other etc, etc, but this just does not fucking work, first i even thought from; are my speakers broke? The video is just disgusting and the overal mastering from this piece sounds like shit to me. I still love James Blake voice though, but i am sad to say, i dislike this piece...

I think it could be symbolic of a lot of things but I think its about her becoming pregnant. The first scene where she's sat on the toilet made me immediately think about pregnancy, the door slightly ajar could be representative of the fact that she feels like she is alone, perhaps because she is the first one out of her friends to become pregnant.

Both people playing the piano could be foreshadowing her giving birth to another human being. I feel like the ritual they have where they spit in the bowl is a reassurance from her close friends that their bond is a chemical one, they are now a part of her.

Perhaps the next couple of scenes are symbolic of truly letting go of childhood now that she has a child to care for, they paint their faces and the part where they lifted the sheet over her reminded me of those parachute games you would play as a kid.

Its also worth noting that when they cut a hole in her clothing and touch her stomach the beat comes back in, almost like they can hear another heartbeat. Also the sucking on fingers is something babies do a lot and could be symbolic of that also.

Ok, everyone who thinks the video is gross, please try just listening to the song without looking at or thinking about the video because it's actually a very nice song (and I think the video's pretty fucking gross too, tbh)

I don't know wtf I just watched... I like James Blake's music but his videos are out there sometimes. This "art" gets kind of lost sometimes I guess. Funny moment though: My friends younger brother (white, like 13) came in around the middle of the video and just shook his and said "white people". Had me rolling lol

This closely resembles god spell the musical. The face painting, the leaving of the main one and the escape from civilization. Maybe that's a real connection?

I'm not trying to a ignorant person or anything but I can't get the message of this video. Can someone help and please explain. I usually can understand the deeper meaning of a lot of videos but I can't figure this one out

Am I the only one that thinks that each of their small injuries is an outward representation of inner struggles that they may go through in their young lives? Dealing with perhaps being on what may be considered the "fringe" of society leads to deep emotional scars. Maybe they are dealing with interpersonal struggles, growing up in general? Perhaps the injuries are just representations of their fears and daily struggles. They find solace and companionship with each other in order to deal with these inner struggles.  A deeply moving piece.

I would love to truly understand the meaning behind this meaning.  All of these young people have injuries so I wonder if they are all victims of domestic abuse or suicide.  I definitely see that see if being welcomed into an order of sorts.  But I wonder if she is being sent beyond or being sent to a place of safety.  Truly a beautiful song but I feel the meaning is sad, of something lost.

I'm not in love with the video although i understand it to a degree, but James Blake is a dope artist. The feel of his music is so relaxing because it's soothing and his voice is smooth...even with the auto tune sound. I must admit, the spitting in the bowl and her drinking it was a bit much for me.

Author Bennie Peterson ( ago)

FOR MONTHS I was singing to myself "we can all fly too high" and I thought it was some meditation on icarus and how we push ourselves too far and burn out. well "beacon, don't fly too high" could have something to do with that.
