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.

the message is that we are exposed in the darkness(any sort of crime)

watching this video, son of bitch.. 7 billion people live on this earth..

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

Think I came up of a valid explanation...... The song may be based on the
real Pompeii catastrophe or;
The world as it is today. We are doing foolish things putting our lives in
jeopardy. The people with black eyes are people who do these bad things...
such as leaving trash on the streets (that pollutes the air). Bastille
tries to run from this because he is the only one that knows the right way
as he doesn't have black eyes. He keeps going a long distance but
eventually realizes-
We cannot escape what we are doomed to be. We are destroying the earth as
we know it, where is the point of being the one in a million that knows we
are fucked? We just have to accept that the majority drives us into the way
we are going and that we should just be one of them instead of plotting a
weak revolution.

he was one of them...

why did those ppl have crazy eyes? and how did he turn into one of them?

Author TheDiamondPenguin (26 days)
to the people who don't understand, or got the meaning wrong, this is
pretty much the explanation:
Pompeii was destroyed by a volcanic eruption.
The black eyes is the volcanic ash in their eyes.
"And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love"
Devastation from the 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.
the running away from the people is trying to escape the city/death as the
volcano erupts
pretty much the song is based on the eruption of Mount Vesuvius destroying
Pompeii in 79 AD

Emir, I don't think "God" knows what the heck you're talking about. That
