Lonely and restless on the coldest of nights.
With these thoughts on my mind that keep pulling me down.
I'm only fooling everyone else.
So that everyone else
turns their back, turns their back
on me.

So let go all these feelings that I'm keeping inside.
Hold on cause I'm feeling like I'm buried alive.

Lay back as this pain takes over me.
Broke down cause my head is spinning outta control.
19 years, and I got nothing to show.
We're only getting older now!

This pain seems forgotten.
But inside I'm rotting!
I'm rotting!
Thinking of all this time left to waste then die.
The only thing I know for sure, is I don't care anymore.

And when I'm gone.
Well I hope you have the strength to move on.
Angry, but I'm told to not complain.
Recluse, but I'm better off this way.

This is not what I want, but I'll just bite my tounge.
Now I'm hungry (hungry)
But I'm too tired to eat.
Tired (tired)
But I'm too hungry to sleep.
We're only getting older now!

This pain seems forgotten.
But inside I'm rotting!
I'm rotting!
Thinking of all this time left to waste then die.
The only thing I know for sure is I don't care anymore.

And it hurts...

SAVE ME CAUSE I'M DROWNING!
(Give me more time!)
I CAN'T KEEP ON COUNTING!

Feels like I'm blinded now as they shut me out.
But I'm trying to see. (GIVE ME A SIGN!)
Please make this stop!

This pain seems forgotten...
But inside I'm rotting...
I'm rotting...
Thinking of all this time left to waste then die!

I'M NOT GOING TO KNOW WHAT I'M DOING HERE!
WHAT I'M DOING HERE!
SO WHY CAN'T YOU GIVE ME A SIGN?!

(GIVE ME A SIGN!) x4

And as I drown now
Swimming in an ocean of fear
My last regret is
Never knowing WHY I'M HERE!

    General Commenti feel like this song is less about suicide, and more about someone searching for purpose/help as he grows up.

    My OpinionI think it's less about suicide and more about being alone and wanting someone to care enough to save you. But you keep you mouth shut about it because you also don't really want them to know how much you're suffering. You feel like you haven't accomplished anything and have no idea what you're doing right now.
    It's a pretty strong song. Everyone feels a bit like this at some point in life.
