Tunes: Pompeii

I first stumbled across Bastille a few months back and while I’ve been hearing their music, I haven’t really listened to it…until today.

Yesterday, I felt lost and like I was in a constant state of disbelief. I was having a hard time explaining that feeling, so when I listened to Pompeii today, it clicked for me.

Particularly this bit:

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all?

I always like to see what other people think songs mean and see if my feeling is mutual or rather just something that made sense in my head. While my interpretation of the song is fairly simplified, I did find an entry that kind of summed up what it meant to me and in better words that I would have chosen:

It’s about that singular moment between something terrible happening and having to face the consequences. We close our eyes just for a moment, delaying the inevitable acceptance. We know we will have to ask ourselves ‘How am I going to deal with this?’ But if I close my eyes, I can pretend it didn’t happen, just for a second. It’s the moment at the top of a very unpleasant roller coaster.

I guess I’m still teetering at the top, trying to find a way to accept reality.
