Am I supposed to feel something,
Was I supposed to let you win,
Why do these things keep happening,
To me.

I see these spirits hovering,
They're forcing me, they're pressuring,
The life I lived has now caved in,
On me.

And I'm twisted,
I'm pushing you away,
And I'm lonely,
And I'm listless,
I'm keeping you at bay,
And I'm lonely.

(Don't want to be lonely)

Somebody give me a reason,
Can't somebody tell me why,
I don't want to have to wait,
I don't want to have to start again,
And reset my mind.

And I'm twisted,
I'm pushing you away,
And I'm lonely,
And I'm listless,
I'm keeping you at bay,
And I'm lonely.

I don't know why, but I'm sinking.
Losing the light, I've lost the light.

And I'm twisted,
I'm pushing you away,
And I'm lonely,
And I'm listless,
I'm keeping you at bay,
And I'm lonely.

    My OpinionBeautifully produced by this Australian Triple J Unearthed artist. Real name Mark Zito, hailing from Melbourne, VIC.

    I feel like this song is about depression. It might or might not be, but it's the vibe I get from the lyrics.

    Bad things keep happening to the person and they feel as though they've lost hope. It's probably happened several times before. The person is most likely depressed and doesn't feel as though anybody understands what they're going through"Was i supposed to let you in?". They "Don't feel anything" emotionally which usually is what depressed people feel.

    "I see these spirits hovering,
    They're forcing me, they're pressuring,
    The life I lived has now caved in,
    On me."

    The person see's people trying to make him feel better. "Spirits" Could refer to his sense of detachment. He see's people helping him as super natural and beyond what he can understand, being that they are happy and going about their lives. They're forcing him to try and feel better even though he doesn't believe he can be fixed. He doesn't feel as though there is anything to his life anymore.

    "And I'm twisted,
    I'm pushing you away,"

    He's conflicted internally. He wants to feel better but can't relate to people anymore. He pushes people away because he doesn't think they will understand them.

    "And I'm lonely,
    And I'm listless,
    I'm keeping you at bay,
    And I'm lonely.
    (Don't want to be lonely)"

    Again, he feels alone and as though no one can help him. He wants someone to understand, someone to help him. He won't accept anyone's help because he doesn't feel as though they could understand even if they wanted to.

    "Somebody give me a reason,
    Can't somebody tell me why,
    I don't want to have to wait,
    I don't want to have to start again,
    And reset my mind."

    He doesn't want to have to wait for someone to find a cure. He contemplates suicide, asking for anyone to give a reason as to why he should keep his life. He questions why he feels this way, he feels as though if he does get a cure he'll just go back to feeling how he does at the moment.

    "I don't know why, but I'm sinking.
    Losing the light, I've lost the light."

    Things are getting worse and he's finding less reason to hold on. He no longer see's any good in the world or in himself "the light". This is potentially a suicide scenario where he has lost all hope and gives in.

    Overall the song is about someone dealing with their inner demons and not overcoming them. It's more or less about depression and how it can affect people, beyond that it tells a story and is a really powerful strong with a deep message.
