I wrote 'Assembly Line' there during my lunch breaks, Thaddeus (the director) and I work very closely together and liked the idea of playing with my image and femininity and seeing where that road took us. I was not prepared for how deeply the transformation was going to affect me and how raw my feelings were going to come through on screen. I wanted to look fucking hot and they couldn't do it. It sent me into a depression as it was happening and you can see how empty and heavy I become.
I started thinking about how much I took for granted about women, our differences, how much separates us, how I've judged women based on looks, my own aesthetic flaws, etc. None of this was the intention. But that was the truth of it. Thad edited this to make what was conceptually sexy and playful into something profoundly sad. The marriage between the lyric and sound and visual ended up being eerily and coincidentally on the nose.
