Yeah it’s inspired by a video game. The game is mostly a story. The main character is a teenager whose father died (in a car crash) a couple of years back, and her best friend moved away around the same time. She used to be pretty happy, but ever since that happened she’s slowly become more angry and aggressive. Her mother is dating a real dick of a guy and he she doesn’t want him around. She misses how things used to be and doesn’t really know how where to go from here. In the game, she quickly develops an intense relationship with this beautiful, charismatic girl from her school. People read her character different ways, maybe based on life experience… but from my point of view she’s the type of girl that really sweeps you off your feet, but doesn’t have your best interests at heart and ends up leaving you crushed. They talk about running away together.
The song is from the main character’s point of view. It’s about how her basic trust in life was betrayed, and all she sees before her is a wasteland. The second verse talks about her grabbing at the first chance of happiness she’s come across, with the implication that it’s probably not going to work out. (This game is actually a prequel, so we already sort of know what’s going to happen and it’s very sad.)
Anyway that’s the gist of it. Hope it makes sense.
