About the song:
"The song was inspired by the fate of the Colombian politician Ingrid Betancourt, who was kidnapped by rebels and held captive for six years. In interviews, she has repeatedly talked about her ordeal, about her constant fear of death and torture, and about the wonderful feeling of being reunited with her friends and family. A life between fire and ice, in other words: between two extremes. This video reflects the song's slightly melancholy atmosphere and the life Betancourt was forced to endure surrounded by nature deep in the jungle." - Matthias Mineur (guitars)
