              I think the sand castles are supposed to represent the memories and foundations of their relationship, but like sand castles at some point they get washed away by the water and all those memories are destroyed and ruined with bad actions, conversations, negative thoughts, and bad memories. Even though you worked really hard to make these memories or this Sandcastle that lasted for a good amount of time you get really mad about how you weren't able to reach your goal and keep your promise to make a beautiful Sandcastle so in the end it's just pain for everyone except the water which could be interpreted as negativity, bad people, problems, Satan, honestly anything. That's how I interpret it.

                              We built sand castles that washed away
                              I made you cry when I walked away
                              Oh, and although I promised that I couldn't stay, baby
                              Every promise don't work out that way, oh, babe
                              Every promise don't work out that way
                              Dishes smashed on my counter from our last encounter
                              Pictures snatched out the frame
                              Bitch, I scratched out your name and your face
                              What is it about you that I can't erase, baby?
                              Well every promise don't work out that way, no no, babe
                              Well every promise don't work out that way
                              And your heart is broken 'cause I walked away
                              Show me your scars and I won't walk away
                              Oh, and I know I promised that I couldn't stay, baby
                              Every promise don't work out that way, no no no no no
                              Every promise don't work out that way
