Video Premiere: Foster The People - Best Friend

Foster The People take a stance against the self-destructive culture of supermodels in the powerful visual for "Best Friend", the second single off of their upcoming second studio album 'Supermodel', released on March 14, 2014.

The Alex Brewer-directed music video is filled with critical references to the contemporary environment modeling by portraying the dangers of anorexia, bulimia and other eating disorders all too common among supermodels.

Lyrics to Best Friend by Foster The People

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

Feeling, sleeping, in the field again,
Oh, I can feel, I can feel, I can feel, it's beginning to end
Yeah, premonition smiling in the dark
Oh, I can see, I can see, I can see the story's starting to arc

Ohhh ohhhh ohhhh ohhhhh

It dries up
I've been a spoken word
I've been a river bed
I've been a rabid force
And let it flow up from within
Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
Ahhh, ahhhh, ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
And colors so...

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, you say it's what you need
And hide your eyes when you're close to me
(When you feel up in the clouds)
Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

Waves in theta, slipping into dreams
Oh, I can feel, I can feel, I can feel the celestial beings
Wilted pleasures leave you with a breath
I can see, I can see, I can see the beauty in the mess

Ohhh, ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhh

It dries up
I've been a river bed
I tried to salt the wound
I've carried more than I can
I feel I've got a lot to prove
Sometimes I feel like I only dream in black and white
Ohhh, ohhh, ohhhh, ohhh
But colors so....

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You'll do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, you say it's what you need
You hide your eyes when you're close to me
(When you feel up in the clouds)
You ought to know
That I'm here no matter where you want to go
(In your head hanging upside-down)
Well, it comes in waves, but it's hardest from the start

I'm here, no matter where you are
So let it in with, open arms, no matter where you are
Sometimes, you'll have to wait,
And it passes by like a satellite or star
No matter where you are

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You know when
Ooh-hoooo-hooooo
(When you feel up in the clouds)
Oh, yeah, you know when
Ooh-hoooo-Ooh hooooo

(When your best friend's all strung out)
Oh, yeah, you know when
You ought to know
That I'm here no matter where you want to go
(In your head, hanging upside-down)
Yeah, you know when
That's how you know
When your best friend's all strung out
