  • Do these lyrics remind you of the World of Darkness?

    So you play your music
    And you smoke your pot
    And you f**k your boyfriend
    In the parking lot
    Ah but still you’re aching
    For the things you haven’t got
    What went wrong...

    This song always reminds me of the non-supernatural part of the WoD. An ordinary girl living a life of quiet desperation, dreaming about a handsome (or beautiful) Fiona coming to rescue her from her Banal existence...

    A charming Toreador works too, or even a magnetically attractive Fianna Galliard...

    The lyrics are gender specific, but they could easily apply to guys and non-binary people too.

    What do you think?


    It is a far far better thing I do than I have ever done... Sidney Carton’s last line before he goes to the guillotine to save Lucie

    Feels like Thin-Blood/Caitiff lyrics.

      Did someone cover Captain Jack and change the gender of the character?

      In any case, give the song is about a loser that's a rich white kid that's doing heroin to convince themselves they're cool and lacking in life despite having everything anyone could want, it could be a particularly wangsty Toreador or Venture... but really there's not need for that sad statement of a person to be more than a normal kid.

        Heroin? I thought it was coke. Thanks.

          I interpreted it as a song about someone who saw their life as shallow and meaningless and was searching for true love as a way out.

            To quote Billy Joel, "What's so horrible about an affluent young white teenager's life that he's got to shoot heroin? It's really a song about what I consider to be a pathetic loser kind of lifestyle. I've been accused of, 'Oh, this song promotes drug use and masturbation.' No, no, no. Listen to the song. This guy is a loser."

            The kid is doing drugs because he thinks his life is shallow and meaningless rather than trying something positive as a way out.

              Thank you. I didn’t get that.
