This video for the song “Blame Me” by Bathe Alone is described as a “short film.” It’s full of symbolism depicting the recent dissolution of singer/instrumentalist Bailey Crone’s marriage, with the gleeful destruction of wedding props including the recognizable and iconic white dress.

Cyndi’s right again

I told her everything

She got it all from start to end

And you got a weak spot for listening to lies

I hate to see these kinds of circumstances, with relationships shattered in the wake of deception. I’m thankful for music as an outlet to express the emotions that accompany betrayal, though.
