I'm going to go against the critics and say that 2014 has been such a
horrible year music-wise compared to 2013.
Last year the mainstream was filled with complete variety, everything
sounded really different from everything else because it was a transitional
year for the pop charts, there were more real instruments in many of the
songs that weren't EDM-dominated, alternative music was the best it had
been in recent memory with the explosions of Bastille, Imagine Dragons, The
Neighbourhood, The 1975 and others, some of the songs started to become
self-aware about everything that was wrong with pop music, with 'Thrift
Shop' and 'Royals' both being worldwide hits, not to mention the fact that
this was the year JT jumped back into the music world, which of course,
helped in favor of 2013. There was still teen-pop, but there was variety
between the songs gaining success. And people still cared about MUSIC
VIDEOS. Some of the biggest videos were silly enough for everyone to enjoy,
but a lot of them actually told a story, or flashed back to another decade,
and weren't always centered around the artist.

After Wrecking Ball, Harlem Shake and The Fox were released and all went
viral, other labels started trying to emulate, and so many songs have been
released specifically to get the same reaction from the media. Not to
mention all of the amazing pop idols from last year have been replaced with
the same old ex-Disney girls, fake bands, and Iggy Azalea, country's
somehow gotten worse than how it was last year, and the rap that's getting
successful is somehow even lower standard - just watch the video for Hot
Boy. All this has reversed the progress that 2013 was setting up, and pop
songs have gone back to being about the same stupid shit it's always been
about. I still like a lot of songs from 2014, but all this is just
frustrating -.-

Kudos if you actually read all of this

Eh-eh-o eh-o

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settled around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

Eh-eh-o eh-o

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?

And the walls kept tumbling down (oh where do we begin?)
In the city that we love (the rubble or our sins?)
Great clouds roll over the hills (oh where do we begin?)
Bringing darkness from above (the rubble or our sins?)

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

If you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?

Guys, this has nothing to do with the songs name. In fact, they are all
shiki's. But this shiki infection spreads troughout air. (Shiki's are
vampires with completely black eyes). So this Guy tries to run from them.
But the infection is so strong, it jeeps following him. When the
transformation happens, he tries to run a bit further but in the end he got
caught.

This song tries to warn us for the upcoming so called 'shiki infection'. It
already hit russia. It wont take long or we Will all die!

+1 if this song made your day :3

Author LukeToThePast (25 days)
In an interview, the lead singer of Bastille (I originally said the band of
Pompeii oops) says the song is about two corpses talking to one another,
with one taking the verses, whereas the other is the chorus. One's a
pessimist and is giving in to the fate that led to the people of Pompeii's
demise, whereas the other is more optimistic about the situation; they know
their fate is sealed to be covered in hot ash and to die like their friend,
but they knows that they'll be safe when they dies. He/she says "But if you
close your eyes..." because they can remember what life was like before the
eruption occurred. He/she can remember peaceful times before it, and they
go back to it; it's their safety place, and the chorus is calming down the
verses, saying things will be okay if they were to just look back at when
everything was normal.

The video shows the lead singer as both of these. He's running away from
people with the darkness in their eyes, representing the pumice and ash
overflowing them. He's afraid of it, as is the verses, but the chorus
eventually calms him down as it goes on. Near the end, he's angry (As he
hits the car when it breaks down), which is when he realises he can't do
anything about it. So he walks to a place, where he's stopped running; he's
no longer afraid of it, he's just going to a place he wants to go. He
eventually makes it to the peak of where he feels safest, to get one last
look at what the life was like before what started happening to the people.
He then embraces his demise, as his eyes become dark.

People have their own interpretations about this song and its message. They
can argue for and against why it's true, and none is necessarily wrong;
I've gone from a primary source and decided my own meaning to the video and
the song itself, but people have had better ideas about what it's about.
Either way, it's a "no right or wrong answer" situation; no one is wrong if
they can back it up, but no one is right because they potentially have
holes in their ideas too. Just pick the idea you like best and respect
other people's ideas.

Amazing, not ur normal shitty pop song. To me he's showing by the black eye
theme that the government and establishments r keeping us in the dark over
things, changing us into darker human beings, our souls are being lost by
what's going on behind the scenes, he says if u close ur eyes does it
almost feel like nothings changed at all, hence most are blind to these
factors as we are not being fully informed of anything so they are blinding
us by dumbing us down. Just my opinion doesn't have to be anyone elses
thanks

I think that the guy was just extremely paranoid. Nothing looks bad with

he realized he cant run from reaitly and everyone else, or thats when he

In my opinion I think this video is amazing. It seems like to me, the
song is about how the world around us is crumbling down. The people with
the black eyes are to blind to see it. The main guy sees it all and is
freaking out that no one else can see what's happening. Until the end when
he "closes his eyes" and decides that nothing has changed at all. It's what
I think when I see the video and hear the song.

"Eh o" sounds like eheu. Eheu means "alas" or "oh no" and being called
Pompeii makes it funny for a Latin student

"Walls crumbling", "Dark clouds" , "Hills" , I think this song is talking
about an ancient Italian city "Pompeii" that was burned and buried in ashes
from Mount Vesuvius eruption, is it just me ?

I like the song. But I'm not too sure I understand the concept of what's
going on in the music video.
