I don't wanna be just another shadow on the wall

I don't wanna be just another shadow on the wall

I don't wanna be the one that feels oh so small

I want to breathe and fill my lungs
I want to find a voice for those holding their tongues 
I need to stop this feeling of drowning
This sensation of falling
No one wants to die alone
But this endless loneliness, I can feel it in my bones
Life is never easy
But I don't long for easy
I don't want to be okay, because okay is a lie
I just don't want to spend half my time trying not to cry
Because I can feel the weight of my world on my shoulders
I'm like Atlas, always under the weight of a million boulders
And this world I live in?
The surface hides the demons and darkness that hide within 
I can't see an end, but I can't see a future
The life I'm living is held together by a suture
A temporary solution
No one knows the end results, the conclusion
So I'm stuck living a life not worth living
Because the mind I've been given is relentless and unforgiving
