    I thought the song was about him being sexually abused when he was younger. There are clear references to sexual abuse in the music video.

    The videos are always particular interpretations of the themes and/or lyrics and/or vibe in a song, they don't always tie into the songwriting inspirations.

    Crawling? That's the first I've ever heard that. I know I didn't realize Points of Authority had sexual abuse overtones until years after the fact, but this is the first I've heard that for Crawling. That are the references in the video?

    An abusive or, at least, unheathy, situation is implied in the video. That's as specific as it gets, the rest is viewers reading into it.

    Oh shit you're right, I only remembered the 'bullying classmate' part of the video, I just rewatched it and forgot all about the bed and shower scenes. Yeah, I see can see that now.
