Rise Up Lyrics

I was hoping for an indication
I was seeking higher elevation
I've been shaken, waiting in the night light
I've been breaking, hiding from the spotlight
The more I stray, the less I fear
And the more I reach, the more I fade away

    100% about how a depressed person looks at and feels about life. Believe me, I know. Always struggling, wondering how others view you and trying to conform, but unable to.

    i think it means that we try to reach for a bigger goal but we face a lots of struggles, but we still don't wanna give up because we are looking for that one chance we can get and succeed.

    A person saying how they are feeling depressed and contemplating suicide.

    I think this is about reaching for goals and pushing hard to achieve, not letting anything hold you back. This at the same time as facing fear head on.
