Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine
Who can relate?
I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine

I don't wanna be alive
I don't wanna be alive
I just wanna die today
I just wanna die
I don't wanna be alive
I don't wanna be alive
I just wanna die
And let me tell you why

All this other shit I'm talkin' 'bout they think they know it
I've been praying for somebody to save me, no one's heroic
And my life don't even matter
I know it, I know it, I know I'm hurting deep down but can't show it
I never had a place to call my own
I never had a home
Ain't nobody callin' my phone
Where you been? Where you at? What's on your mind?
They say every life precious but nobody care about mine

I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine
Who can relate?
I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine

I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don't gotta die today
You don't gotta die
I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don't gotta die
Now lemme tell you why

It's the very first breath
When your head's been drowning underwater
And it's the lightness in the air
When you're there
Chest to chest with a lover
It's holding on, though the road's long
And seeing light in the darkest things
And when you stare at your reflection
Finally knowing who it is
I know that you'll thank God you did

I know where you been, where you are, where you goin'
I know you're the reason I believe in life
What's the day without a little night?
I'm just tryna shed a little light
It can be hard
It can be so hard
But you gotta live right now
You got everything to give right now

I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine
Who can relate?
I've been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I'm out of my mind
It feel like my life ain't mine

I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive
I don't wanna die today (hey)
I don't wanna die
I finally wanna be alive (finally wanna be alive)
I finally wanna be alive (oh)
I don't wanna die (no, I don't wanna die)
I don't wanna die
(I just wanna live)
(I just wanna live)

Pain don't hurt the same, I know
The lane I travel feels alone
But I'm moving 'til my legs give out
And I see my tears melt in the snow
But I don't wanna cry
I don't wanna cry anymore
I wanna feel alive
I don't even wanna die anymore
Oh I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't even wanna die anymore

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Logic's song "1-800-273-8255" are about depression and suicidal thoughts. The repeated lines "I've been on the low, I been taking my time, I feel like I'm out of my mind, it feel like my life ain't mine" express the feeling of being disconnected from one's own life and not seeing the point in going on. The chorus repeats the phrase "I don't wanna be alive, I just wanna die today" and then transitions into "I want you to be alive, you don't gotta die today" as the singer directly addresses those who may relate to the feelings described.


The verses expand on the singer's personal experiences with depression and feelings of hopelessness. They describe a lack of support and feeling like no one cares as well as the struggle to express their true feelings. However, the bridge of the song offers a hopeful message of holding on through difficult times and finding meaning and self-acceptance.


Overall, the song serves as a reminder that those struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts are not alone and that there is hope for a brighter future.

LOGICAL Reasons against suicide

FACTS TRUTHS and REALNESS
1.) WHAT- None of us chose to be born what makes us think we can choose when to die?
2.) WHO- nobody gets to choose their parents (trust me there is always someone with worse parents and better parents maybe Bill Gates parents?)
3.) WHEN-nobody gets to choose when they were born (renaissance seemed cool)
4.) WHY-Nobody gets to choose why they were born (to be a boddhisattva seems pretty noble)
5.) WHERE- nobody gets to choose where they were born (Hawaii? Maybe fiji?)
6.) HOW- nobody gets to chose how they were born (test tube baby is pretty original and rare)
But we get to choose when we die? Doesn't logically follow sorry no religious reasons here only facts and logic

THEO-LOGICAL Reasons against suicide
Universal Spiritual Truths and Realness
1.) Life could be a test experiment game or simulation either way even in the game the lemmings point is to save life not kill it
2.) According to Hinduism the longest practicing religion in the world karma is real it is a universal law of the universe therefore if one kills himself it's exposing themselves to the negative cycle of reincarnation of rebirth and redeath or samsara one will never be able to achieve Moksha or liberation Simply put if you thought you had it bad in this life according to this belief system wait until your next incarnation
3.) According to Islam if you kill one person it's as though you've killed all of humanity and if you save one person it's as though you've saved all of humanity killing oneself is not suicide but more like a homicide because you killed someone's son or daughter or brother or sister or mother or father
4.) According to Sufism God loves us so much that he gives us today and tomorrow to make things right yesterday is gone but we still have a 2/3 to do better to hope for better and to try to live day by day
5.) According to Buddhism life wants to live it just wants to end suffering the Buddha said the main way to end suffering was to let go of all of your wants and desires you want to be rich wanna be more beautiful you want to be smarter you want these things and you may not get those the Buddha said if you just focus on your needs you will find the end of suffering you need to have food you want lobster you need to have water you want cherry coke you need to have a roof over your head you want a mansion you need to have decent clothes over you want to be draped in prada silk you need to have love in your life you want lust

endless wants will lead to suffering but if we focus on our needs we can lead to something manageable and sustainable



@jackxthexreaper736

I'm struggling so bad right now.

I'm sick... been diabetic for 30+ years, I have liver and kidney problems, my eyes are bleeding and I have to get eye injections to help try to clean up some of the damage so I don't go blind...

I've been on doctor prescribed Fentanyl for 15 years and I'm not doing well. I'm always in bed, I can't do normal activities... if I try, it's not for very long due to fatigue. I'm chemically dependent on it... I HATE IT... I hate my doctor...

I hate my life... I'm so scared... I want to die, but I don't. My mom recently passed, too. I miss her so much and I wish I could talk to her.

I don't know what to do...



@YoloLove

The last time I felt my mother's love
was when I was in her womb
She spent nine months delicately curating me
My eyes.
My heart.
When she laid her eyes on me for the first time,
she realized she could never love me.
My eyes saw through her.
My heart followed a different beat.
She discarded me the day she laid her eyes on me.
I was made with love.
I was not made to be loved.

@The85F0X

I'm a cop and the number of suicides I have gone to is very sad. I once pulled a woman out of a garage after she tried to kill herself by running the vehicle in it. She had a letter she had written and I chose to read it. It brought me to tears how someone can lose hope to that point. I sat with her and talked about it with her. I saw her a year later she was getting married and thanked me for just listening.

@ChronoJonah

You are a nice person. Thanks for sharing this.

There’s a Persian saying “if you really wanna die, throw your self into the ocean, and yet you will find your self trying to swim, trying to live, you don’t wanna die you wanna kill what’s inside of you.” This is probably one of my favorite quotes
