While browsing for this music video I found this comment, I couldn't agree more //
The Meaning of the Elastic Heart plays upon which one of the two is more savage: the angered innocence of an animal (or a child) or the rage of the angry man. Their skin-tone dirty clothing portrays them at the same level. In the end, it's the man who's unable to escape into innocence, and the child wondering why he can't be free of his chains. While nature can be savage, only man can be as savage as gladiator matches of Rome, or the Hunger Games - the movie this song was originally written for.
