(the kids in the dark)x3
here we are at the end of the road
a road that's quietly caving in (caving in)
come too far to pretend that we don't
we don't miss where we started
but looking back I see a setting sun
and watch my shadow fade...

    The video and lyrics described it all.

    A young girl who is sad because her parents are fighting and doesn't care about her.

    She went out and had fun with kids like her and when she went home she smiled to her parents. She will be strong and not be affected with their arguments.

    For the kid who commented below, sorry to hear that you are depressed and left alone. Be open to others so they can understand you. Who knows you'll find an understanding friend who you can trust and be open with. Talk to your parents or siblings or elder relatives. Talk to your guidance counselor. Pray if you believe in God. Self-harming is not a solution to your depression. Hiding in the dark will continue to make you depressed. Appreciate life and the people who are in your life. Life is to be lived. Live one day at a time. Be strong and true.

    ~ Robot

    I think this song is talking about the kids who have depression. It talks about being left alone, because people dont believe you have depression. 'Beautiful scars on critical veins' is talking about self harming. I have scars on veins. I have been left alone, and I am the kid in the dark. Some people don't understand, so instead of attempting at understanding. I am left alone.

    I feel as if in this song, All Time Low is saying, no matter where you've been and no matter where you'll go, you never have to surrender to society. They're saying conformity is pointless and that no matter who you are, you can make it wherever your dreams take you. They're saying that you choose what happens in your life.

    This song could have two meanings the first one could be that when life gets you down theres not much point in worrying over it because it will get better no matter what and when you think life cant get any worse then that means that it can only get better therefore the lyric " here we are at the end of the road " when your at the end of the road theres nothing left there you cant carry on theres nothing there for you to carry on, the other meaning could be a relationship that there isnt much point fighting for any more " here we are at the end of the road, a road that's quietly caving in " if the relationship isnt working out how they both want it to then its going to cave in because if its not working then there isnt much point in fighting for it.
