Day after day, recurring self-acting gestures
I can but feel this repetition and stand benumbed
I cannot run away
My existence in dissolution
How could I break this steady cycle to rise instead into light again

I have been waiting for the day when I could sort it out
But nothing ever changes
I’m wasting my own life
I am going from zero to nothing
I have been waiting for the day when I could sort it out
But nothing ever changes
I’m wasting my own life
And becoming what I have sworn to never be

When there is no way out
All just become insignificant
I can’t breath
I can’t sleep
Am I dead
No more faith
No more hopes
No more dreams

I have been waiting for the day when I could sort it out
But nothing ever changes
I’m wasting my own life
I am going from zero to nothing
I have been waiting for the day when I could sort it out
But nothing ever changes
I’m wasting my own life
And becoming what I have sworn to never be

    Song MeaningAll right, it's my first time on this site but... I'll make it worthwhile!

    It's not so hard to notice it but I believe that these lyrics depict the manifestation of one's personal nihilism as you look back at your own life, wondering what's the point of living. Every day feels like an insubstantial routine, having nothing to hold on to and being unable to find something that makes sense out of life.

    "When there is no way out
    All just become insignificant
    I can't breathe
    I can't sleep
    Am I dead
    No more faith
    No more hopes
    No more dreams"

    I could relate to this song, since I've had some hollow days while wondering what I'm supposed to live my life for. There might be some faith, passion or goals that you've yet to achieve but until then, you might someday ask yourself what you are doing here... in this life of yours.
