That's an interesting one. I think it could represent Four (he seems envious and dressed in an unusual way) disintegrating towards Two under stress (becoming needy and manipulative) or I think more likely Two (seems he was happy enough to take on the invisible, indispensible 'helper' role to start with and now expects to be wanted in return) disintegrating towards Eight under stress (becoming aggressive and threatening).
Well, you have to look at the complexity of it - the 4 sometimes idealizes the idea of being "saved" which is what he does "for her" ... in fact, I know what you mean about him acting like an 8. I look at the man and woman both, the overall feel of the song and video.
The aesthetic quality of the video strikes me as 4, and so does the fact that the song over all is "expressive, dramatic, self-absorbed, and temperamental" which is a text book definition of 4. I think there are touches here upon the 4w3 aristocratic idealized self, too.
(You could be right about this being an unhealthy 2 - I'm fairly sure I'm a 4w3 but have actually questioned I could be a 2 because a healthy 2 can seem like a 4, and an unhealthy one an 8.)

Isn't life under the sun just a crazy, crazy, crazy dream? Isn't life just a mirage of the world before the world? Why am I here and not over there? When did time begin? Where does space end? Where do you and I begin?
