    The tree shape is also a nuke-bomb mushroom shape. I think the "Boom" is a double entendre for both music and an actual nuke explosion. The objects that turn into grenades and the serious look in their faces kind of back that up or suggest it also - this isn't a goofing around type video at least. Could be a warning for the future or present.

    It is about TOG "Torch Of God" who exploded 3 balloons on forest road 777 9/26/2007 and the third balloon was the loudest and brightest.

    This song represents our desire to get and buy more things, "I gotta get that", really, I mean it spells it out for us. If anyone has seen the video, it keeps showing us a white tree, representing good in society, then this tree morphs into a gas mask, while surrounded by figures, with complex designs on them. They represent our evil desire and greed. They turn grenades into flashlights, and machine guns into trumpets. This represents how they mask us from the real world, and keep coaxing us to buy more. I like the song, the meaning just stood out to me.

    They are the pixels that make up a TV screen and they are suposed to be "alive" and in the future or something and they are comparing themselves to older technology. But that's just what I think...

    It's saying how everything is going digital and we've gotta like it or be left behind. "I'm so 3008, you're so 2000 and late". It's also saying how music gets much bigger as it goes along. "Beat so big I'm stepping on Leprechauns" and we've just gotta let the beat rock!
