We end our day up on the roof
I say I’ll jump, I never do
But when I’m drunk I act a fool
It could also be his sense of nihilism that comes with being a teenager with all the connections and riches in the world and no one to guide him— no one truly cares about him at all. There’s no real meaning to his life.
It’s a sense of feeling invisible. You’re going to try things you normally wouldn’t do when you’re drunk because you feel like you can do anything.
He’s drunk, so at this point in the day, each day, he’s only be half-contemplating what jumping and killing himself would do, passing it off as a joke to his friends. It would end the self-destructive cycle he goes through every day.
This also brings the day full circle, as he started the day on the roof and was admiring the view instead of contemplating suicide.
