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?

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

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

This song tries to warn us for the upcoming so called 'shiki infection'. It

thumbs up for Pompeii!

So now I know that Bastille is getting rigged views on this video. 136
billion is not logical like what the fuck? Have some honest views
dude...really FUCKED up. There isn't 136 billion people on this earth, and
no one has even questioned this? We need to educated our youth who are
watching this video, son of bitch.. 7 billion people live on this earth..

Author Daniella Alcala (1 month)
People saying Bastille is "buying" views because there's only 7 billion
people on the earth, let's have a little math class on youtube since you
apparently don't know the difference between hundreds,thousands,millions,
and billions. So let's say you have 100 people that number is a HUNDRED.
Now add ONE zero and you have 1,000 people THAT number is a THOUSAND. But
wait I'm not done add THREE more zeros and you get 1,000,000 people that
number is now a MILLION NOT A BILLION BUT A MILLION okay? So good so far?
Okay. Now if you add THREE more zeros you get 1,000,000,000 people which is
million number and you replace the 9 places with 151,652,283 you get the
number of views on the video currently. But if you remember to have a
BILLION people there had to be either 10 or 12 numbers, just like
7,000,000,000 or 7 BILLION or the amount of people on the earth. So if you
see how many zeros 7,000,000,000 (7 billion) has compared to 200,000,000 (2
hundred million or amount of views rounded off) you can see that the
population on earth has more zeros compared to the number of views which
means the amount of people on earth is greater or BIGGER than the amount of
views therefore making it FALSE (based on this information) that Bastille
is buying views since the amount of views is not bigger than the population
of the planet we are living on which by the way needs more educational
television shows so that people know the difference between A BILLION AND A
MILLION since apparently once again people don't know the difference :)
By the way I know people are trolling,as people call it, but there's always
time for a math lesson

Hey guys I would like to prove some facts to you. Pompeii is a Roman city
nothing to do with the Christians' religion, now let me stop you right
there and remind you that Romans are older than Christianity. Second off no
one warned them except the seer in the city. Only some people believed the
seer and left the city before the eruption of Mount Vesuvius happened.
There were signs that the Eruption was going to happen with was cattle
dying and dry land. The people that wanted to leave when the eruption
happened were trapped in their homes or destroyed by the force of the
volcano. The people trapped had to accept the inevitable, that they were
going to die. If you go there you might find replicas of the Romans that
were preserved. Here is a link from to help you understand. Please don't be a
idiot and argue I got proof already.

A lot of people think this song is called Pompeii because the eruption of
Mt. Vesuvius is a metaphor for something else, but actually the song was
written as a theoretical conversation between two people who died in the
disaster. Pompeii was destroyed in 79 AD. What should be a grim subject
makes for a surprisingly uplifting and catchy song.

A Short History of
L/L Research
I’ve been at this pursuit of UFO understanding for over 25 years
now. I’ve tried to maintain a totally open-minded approach to the
study, considering no piece of evid
ence too small or too ridiculous to
consider. The theory which has gradually emerged from this approach
may seem a bit wild or absurd, but it is dealing with a wild and
absurd bunch of data. The one thing that recommends the theory is
that almost all reports which come in day by day seem to fit into it
very well. One thing to remember:
almost everything which we now
accept as normal in our present technology would have been
considered a wild and absurd impossi
bility a scant 100 years ago. We
do not know how many millennia ah
ead of our present understanding
the UFOs might be.
Living the Law of One – 101: The Choice
is my report to you of the
research done at L/L Research over
the last fifty years. It began
with Don Elkins’ studies in
the middle 1950s. Elkins was a
thoroughgoing scientist born in 1930, a physicist and mechanical
engineer and a Professor at Speed Scientific School at the
University of Louisville for many
years. He taught, flew charter
trips as a pilot for the local flying services and spent his odd
moments reading widely in metaphysics and new science as well as
in the fringe areas of
the paranormal and UFOs.
Elkins began his investigations by studying an area which had
fascinated him for some years: reincarnation. His studies had
informed him that the Eastern
world, including Buddhists and
Hindus, felt that souls entered inca
rnation repeatedly over a long
stretch of thousands of years, gathering experiences and collecting
Donald T. Elkins, writing in 1976 in an unpublished, unfinished manuscript.

Preface: A Quick History of L/L Research
the fruit of their learning and labo
rs in the ever-growing character
of their infinite and eternal souls.
He was also aware that the Jewish
culture of which Jesus the Christ
was a part believed that reincarnatio
n was a fact of life. Indeed, the
early church fathers carefully t
ried to remove all mention of
reincarnation from the Bible, for
reasons of their own. Some traces
remain, however. An example of this
occurs in the sixth chapter of
the Gospel of Mark, where people
were guessing who Jesus was.
Some said he was John the Baptist and others said He was Elijah,
“raised from the dead.”
Elkins decided to research the hypothesis that reincarnation is the
way things work by means of doing hypnotic regressions of
selected subjects. He induced a hypnotic trance in over 200
subjects of all ages and conditions of life and asked them questions
about their experiences before co
ming into birth in this life.
His subjects obliged with a rainbow array of previous lifetimes of
all kinds. Very few were of any high estate. For the most part the
subjects reported lives as reg
ular people and hard-working souls.
Their lives might be in any century
of recorded history but the
details of their lifetimes were,
for the most part, familiar and
normal. The themes of home, fa
mily, seeking and service ran true
no matter what the era or even the planet of origin.
The exceptions were interesting!
In one notable session, the subject
reported that he was a human-sized, white bird. It turned out that
he was re-experiencing a lifetime
in Atlantis, a continent which
Plato described long ago as havin
g sunk beneath the waves of the
Atlantic Ocean. Other research we have done indicates that the
Atlanteans, working with crystal technology, created many
combined forms such as man and bird, man and lion and so forth.
From this era of prehistory spring combined forms such as the
huge statue of the sphinx in
Egypt and many other supposedly
mythological beasts.
Having determined to his own satisfaction that the theory of
reincarnation was valid, Elkins turn
ed to what, in the mid-fifties,
was still a wide-open and novel area of research: UFO contact. In
his spare time he either telephon
ed, corresponded with or got in

Preface: A Quick History of L/L Research
his small plane and flew to see Kenneth Arnold, George Adamski,
George Hunt Williamson, Gray Barker, Dan Fry and Orfeo
Angelucci, to name only a few of
the many UFO contactees with
whom he talked during this period.
The UFO witnesses all told Elkins their stories of being contacted
by extraterrestrials. The ships
the witnesses saw differed in
appearance and so did the appearance of the aliens, but their
stories had areas of commonality. One contactee after another
added to a growing picture of Earth as a planet moving rapidly
towards a time of great transition and the shift of consciousness
associated with moving into a new heaven and a new earth. They
spoke of a choice related to this
shift. One Pennsylvania contactee
put it very simply, quoting a figure
he saw in his contact: “If
humankind does not wake up and
choose to live differently, the
end is near.”
You have been here before and before... the dawn of dust. Look into my
eye's and you will see... the focusing of.. The Infinity... the Creator in
You, as it is... in me. I am you and You are me...and... We are here!

You can get a better understanding of this song if you see the black eyed
people as Mac Users and the normal eyes as PC users. The PC user is
confronted with Mac propaganda and tries his best to avoid it, going as far
as to steal a car and drive to the desert. But little does he know, he is
listening to music on a iPhone, so he slowly likes the idea of Apple.
Frustrated, he runs into the desert, where he finds wind turbines with the
apple logo on it. As he stands atop the mountain, staring at the clouds,
the spirit of Steve Jobs visits him and gives him a iPhone 7+, 5 years
before its development. Content with gimmicky desktop widgets and no
computer tower, he turns to the viewer and shows us the pain in his eyes.

This is a good song but I don't get how the video went I mean Pompeii was a
volcano that erupted and that is what the song is about the video is placed
in New York City so thus guy is going crazy. All I'm saying is the song is
written and sung very well but where the video is placed and does not tell
about the actual story of Pompeii then how will we know what the song is
about if the song is set on Pompeii but the video is placed in NYC it's
kind of hard to tell who it is based on in the first place. And the black
eyes I don't know what those meant. But my point is if I was directing this
video I would have the song and the video based on the same thing. If wanna
know what I mean look up dollhouse by Melenie Martinez I think that shows
there was a good director
