  5. 5. Description of the video <ul><li>The video shows Williams (Hayley, lead singer) being singled out and ignored by the other members of the band. She shines a light bulb directly in their faces, whilst describing how they ignore her and treat her like just another stranger in the lyrics. The cramped and bare setting emphasises the inescapable, rising tensions between the band members. The video cuts between the band performing in a cramped room, a larger performance area and Williams being laid bare in white clothes, hair pulled back etc. The video ends with the other members of the band being able to wrap the light bulb wire around Williams, possibly showing how the spotlight is only on her and never on the other band members. </li></ul>
