So I interpret it as bts having the choice to walk away from the perfect happiness of their youth and into the unknown world of adulthood. The short story alludes to the idea that the people who walk away from the city might not have anywhere to go, but they seem to know where they're going anyway. So it's basically the boys on the cusp of adulthood. That's my interpretation!
From what I read I kinda formed that idea too. The running theme for bts’ stories is youth and becoming an adult.
As a child you’re sheltered from the world by your parents, and live in this bubble. At least this counts for most children, not everyone has a happy childhood. But anyways, once you get older you come to face the harsh realities of the world, and learn of how cruel it can be. When you grow up you leave your bubble and have to face an unknown future. You work towards your goal that you’ve set, but you never know what could come into your path, be it good or bad. But you have the people around you to support you, so you never walk alone.
know its been a while but I will not fake this stupid smile ‘cause you robbed me, fed me the line Your bounty was me took all you could see And worked just side by side The trust and love we’d abide Until you left home thrust with the tide And put this hate back inside my eyes
Are you blocking all the things that have to do with me? Is it easier now, do you feel any release? Tell me how you fit in and where do you begin? Do you toast when they toast? Do you sin when they sin?
Stepped through your place Lust in my eyes toyed with deceit Planted your lies Play it off well, say that I’m fine Do I hold that small space in your mind? Stuck in your web flailing my arms Trying to break loose from your charm Split up your mind do you some harm No stranger to harm
How can I see anyone anymore? And how can I feel anything anymore?
