Kufiyaspotting #15: Nine Inch Nails' "Survivalism"

A new video from Nine Inch Nails, featuring lead singer Trent Reznor sporting a kufiya scarf. A verse from the song:
Hypnotic sound of sirens
Echoing through the street
The cocking of the rifles
The marching of the feet
You see your world on fire
Don't try to act surprised
We did just what you told us
Lost our faith along the way and found ourselves believing your lies

Interesting vid, showing a heavily armed military/police unit entering a building (it looks at first like it could be Iraq)--and what apartment are they targeting? The gay couple's? The Asian woman dressing in front of the mirror? The (Hispanic?) couple on the couch? The older black man? Or the band?
