For me its more like: we (our generation, I guess) dream about living fast 'n dyin young, s** drugs & rock'n'roll, about being seen as happy and succesfull, having money, marrying models coz they'are beautiful and not for love - we dream of it coz it looks so glamorous and careless. Everyone wants to be famous, rich, 'party like a rockstar'. But once you manage to do that you can only pretend it's great, becouse this doesn't make you happy. They do drugs and drink too much because they actually depressed, and even if they're never alone, they're terribly lonely. This song is quite pessimistic, but also makes you think: maybe having the office job, one true love and a happy family is not actually a failure, as one could imagine after watching mtv and reading about his idol's lifestyle. Plus, it's real - and not pretending.
