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
already hit russia. It wont take long or we Will all die!

What is wrong with the people eyes?!
It's all black!!

Author Dom McNoob (24 days)
This song makes *complete* sense on how it has to do with Pompeii.

The black stuff in there eyes was actually volcanic ash.
So the video makes sense as well.

Pompeii was destroyed by a volcanic eruption.

"And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love"

Devastation possibly by a volcano.

"Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above"

Referring to the volcanic ash and dust.

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

The people there were being mummified by the dust.

And there you have it. This song has *everything* to do with Pompeii.

Author sG GunSkillz (1 month)
The basic meaning of the song! He is trying to get away from the people
(with the black eyes) that already accept that they aren't perfect. He
later comes to realize that after all of the people that he saw, he is just
like them. He then realize that he or no one else is perfect and become one
of the rest!

Pompeii= The wealthy used to swallow duck feathers to vomit, so they can
eat more.

They used Urine as Ammoniac, Urine was prized like Gold im Pompeii. Eww.....

Anyone new that would come into town Girl/Boy would be forced same sex

Incest was at the top level.

God sent The Prophet Lot to warn them of this. Lot did warn them until once
day God said " Take your family with you out of the city at dawn, except
your wife "

Because Prophet Lots wife was also playing the Kaafirs games.

When Lot went out of the city, Gods angels Turned the City upside down....
This is free information go dig it up. Save yourself from Gods punishment
and anger. Inshallah

Why do you think theyre making Islam look really bad? So that you can STAY
away from the TRUTH and be guided to Hell with Satan. That is his Plan. So
take him as Enemy to you as he has taken enemy on you.

Our place is Eternal Life God wants us in Eternal life he wants all of us
in Paradise. But then you have these ignorant people "Why is my temporary
life like this like that " instead of being grateful so God can give you
more on this Earth or save your rewards for the Hereafter.

If God created the Universe, couldnt he have the Power to create you a
universe of yourself?

It is said in levels of Paradise people Homes will be like how we see the
planets. According to their faith and trust in God.

You might not know Satan has the power to Afflict us with anything in this
Temporary World with the will of God to show that We chase our Desires and
Lusts rather than Love+Passion for God. That we hate God if he doesnt give
us anything and we become ignorant foolish prideful. and try to see
ourselves one step above God. Euzibillah.


First command was " Read in thy name of the Lord that has created thee"

Not watch TV or brainwashing videos.

Allahu Alim.

Could the symbolic meaning of the 'black eyes' be a search for light
The when there is a lack of light the natual response of the iris is to
dilate causing an increase in pupil size allowing more light to enter the
retina and letting the individual see more clearly. But when you ve just
entered the darkess your eyes take a moment to adjust (like when you enter
a dark room vs. having spent a few minutes in a dark room) while your eyes
are adjusting the world around you is dark and scary or unclear. 'Closing
your eyes' to prevent all light from entering can help your eyes to adjust
quicker. Most of the comments ive seen relating to meaning of the black
eyes is that they symbolize the loss of the individuals soul or the persons
demons taking over from the inside, but i see almost the opposite.
The whole song the narrator is asking "How am I going to be an optimist
about this?" and he is angry, frustrated and scaried. At the end his eyes
are black and he is walking toward the light to me displaying how he found
a way to be optimistic about the future.

what does pompeii mean ?

Author Zach Williams (26 days)
The black eyes represent death, and he is trying to run away from it,
pompeii is death, the song is about Mt. Vesuvius <--- I don't know how to
spell that. Erupting. he's running away from the eruption, but it kills him

They were possessed by demons :O

Author lavawood studios (17 days)
It's about a man trying to escape demons but failed. The daemons have the
black eyes and at the end he has black eyes too
