This song and video tells the story of the Montana Kid. He is a worn out drifter looking for his place in the world. Haunted by inner ghosts for his past actions, he constantly struggles to run from them, never knowing if what he is seeing is real or just in his mind.
This fits within the contest topic by way of the main character in the video and song. He struggle with his inner spirits of his younger self, an angel and outer demons that continue to haunt him and make him question his path, intentions and purpose.

Old man fighting for his life
on a trail he was left alone
rugged earth had seen his blood
felt it on the sharpest stone
When all roads lead home
the weary minds to roam
no fortunes of fate
have all been cast away
the Montana kids never free
Swept away in a common flood
lost a love down in Idaho
searching for his last goodbye
had to run and was forced to go
Watched his empire fade away
only spoons to dig his grave
a little at a time
what’s become of all these lines
no one could connect
he use to come around here looking for the answers
that I could never tell
he use to come around here looking for the reasons
that I could never share
