This is a notion empowered by an individual motivation.
I've given most of my efforts to have not just a single person to rely on.

This obelisk of discouraging actions was all washed out by a tidal wave of art and soul,
And this will never make a coward of me,
I'll ride this wave up to the top.

The day I needed you summoned before me,
Became the day,
I was left all alone,

A test of my survival,
A test of my strength,
A test of my survival,
Everyone is distant!

The day I needed you, I watched you turn your back away from me,
And I'm all alone.
I never needed you anyway.
Cried out to you.
We are alone, we are alone.

I wouldn't trust you just as far as I could throw you.
I wouldn't ask for a single fucking thing from you.
I wouldn't trust you even if I've always known you.
I wouldn't ask for a single thing.

The day I needed the numbers beside me became the day that I was left all alone.
You never notice that people they leave you, but you can do this on your own.

The day I needed you, I watched you turn your back away from me,
And I'm all alone.
Cried out to you, cried out to you.
We are alone, we are alone.

    It's about being let down by someone you had/have trust and faith in. Needing them and they aren't there for you when you need it the most.

    Its about putting your trust and faith into one person and theyre not there for you when you needed them the most and he takes it as a test on how he'd survive if he was all alone and realizes that he can get through it all alone

    I think that this song is about putting all of your trust in someone and then when you need them the most they don't do anything
