(OPERA: I want a tuna sandwich tuna afternoon)

*Ducks quack*

You know you're not the only one.
When they all come crashing down, midflight.
You know you're not the only one.
When they're so alone they find a back door out of life.
You know you're not the only one.

We're all grieving,
Lost and bleeding.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing.
Heaven shine a light down on me.

So afraid to open your eyes, hypnotized.
You know you're not the only one.
Never understood this life and you're right, I don't deserve.
But you know I'm not the only one.

We're all grieving,
Lost and bleeding.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing.
Heaven shine a light down on me.

Don't look down,
Don't look into the eyes of the world beneath you.
Don't look down, you'll fall down,
You'll become their sacrifice.

Right or wrong.
Can't hold onto the fear that I'm lost without you.
If I can't feel, I'm not mine,
I'm not real.

All our lives,
We've been waiting
For someone to call our leader.
All your lies,
I'm not believing,
Heaven shine a light down on me.

    I think this song is about those who are depressed, people who self-harm, those who are bullied et cetra and how they aren't alone.
    How people tell them they don't deserve it, some commit suicide, and how the survivors look for someone to lead them on. How they don't have to fall into the world or the pressure.
