Okay. I love The Civil Wars and I think that this song would have been 100x more powerful had it just been the two of them without Taylor Swift. I must admit that I'm not a huge fan of hers and I just think that The Civil Wars could have done it so much better on their own. I do like the lyrics of the song and I think it reflects in a lot of ways the way that Katniss wants to protect Prim in the book series. It's interesting that the video doesn't have a lot of elements from the movie. This could be because it was intended to be a stand-alone sort of deal.
Overall, I do like the video. It does seem very dystopian, which is in keeping with the theme of the books. Also, it's interesting that Swift discovers a Mockingjay pin in the abandoned house. There was definitely a very creepy, interesting feel the to video and I like it for the most part, except the whole Taylor Swift part.
