BTW to all you guessing what this song is about ~Bastille frontman Dan
Smith told in a new interview that the band’s chart-topping
Modern Rock smash, “Pompeii,” was inspired directly by the ancient Roman
town that was buried by a volcanic eruption, leaving ash-covered bodies
frozen in place. Smith recalled, “I was working a crap job and thinking
about those images of those people in Pompeii — my life was also in stasis.
I imagined a conversation between two people frozen in the same position
forever. I quite like the idea that people have been hearing it on the
radio and are at festivals jumping around, but actually it’s a song about
two old corpses talking.

The video clearly symbolizes coming-of-age and the loss of innocence.
He starts off inside his building (childhood) looking outside to the city
(Adulthood) and eventually ventures out into it. Notice that he only sees
adults but no children. Once he starts to confront how dark and scary the
world really is, he becomes frightened (Couple making out = Sexual
maturity, ect.). He runs into the arcade in hopes of finding anyone who is
still innocent (normal eyes) like him. He eventually attempts to escape the
city of adulthood, only to find that it doesn't matter how far he runs
away, growing up is inevitable: His eyes turn black.

Also if you think about it, the video gives the lyrics different meaning.
"If you close your eyes, does it almost seem like nothings changed at all?"
: If you close your eyes to reality, you can escape to happier innocent
times before your perspective of the world changed.

There are also other small details, like when he stops to stare at the
river, which usually symbolizes the ceaseless flow of time.
