    I think it's kind of looking at how people screw up thier lives cause a it says the city is at war playtime for the young and rich, well maybe war as in rival gangs or something, and then I think it's about being on drugs cause lot of young people use drugs and so do rich people like celebrities. then bang bang shoot em up is either when people are physically shooting each other or shooting up a drug, then the thing about the girl may be she decided to use drugs and died and then she was a news story, and the i just don't give a shit i think means that he doesn't wanna get involved, then the part when you don't get another shot at life means if you screw it up by getting involved in the wrong things you can't fix it cause maybe you could die or be branded with that rep.

    I think this song is about the Hollywood lifestyle. The song talks about how many celebrities live with their "designer" friends and rugs because a lot of celebrities give up their normal life for a more rich and glamorous lifestyle.In the end though they can make one little mistake or do something wrong and all of that fame and fortune is gone(come on live it up while you can but in the end,no, you don't get another shot.)
