The song was accompanied by an anti-war music video, directed by John Hardwick. It was the first of Blur's videos to not feature the band members themselves in any way, consisting entirely of footage from a 2002 BBC Correspondent documentary (Warship) depicting life aboard the United States aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln. Albarn described the video as "the antithesis of the 'Top Gun' image of the American military machine."

Out Of Time


The video is centred on Jill Ameperosa, a 24-year-old aircraft maintenance technician. After walking up to the deck, she looks out at sea whilst subtitles on the screen read, "Two days after I get home he leaves. It's just too hard. I used to love him. But you can't love someone you don't know anymore ...". Albarn explained: "It focuses on the loneliness of somebody working on an aircraft carrier and the fact that a six-month tour of duty means that relationships break down and children go without their parents. That's the reality of it."

Commenting on the video, Hardwick explained,

it occurred to me that some of the personnel revealed in that film communicated a fragility that I felt was echoed in the song. Putting the two together was a comparatively simple task. The video offers an alternative perspective on the individuals who exist at the sharp end of government policy by portraying the armed forces as being staffed by people who have the same needs as all others."

Where's the love song set us free
Too many people down, everything turning the wrong way round
And I don't know what love will be
But if we stop dreaming now, lord knows we'll never clear the clouds

And you've been so busy lately
That you haven't found the time
To open up your mind

And watch the world spinning gently out of time

Feel the sunshine on your face
It's in a computer now
Gone are the future, way out in space

And you've been so busy lately
That you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time

And you've been so busy lately
That you haven't found the time
To open up your mind
And watch the world spinning gently out of time
Tell me I'm not dreaming
But are we out of time
We're out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Out of time
Out of time
