Left Alone
Domain Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Been stranded here, on the shores of this island
And what I found was paradise
But all my dreams, destroyed by my own hands
I was fool, I brought evil to life!

What have I done?
What's left to do?
In an endless ocean
The only one left here, still searching for truth

Left alone, in this ocean left alone
Dying all alone, for all that I've done
Left alone, got my fears all by me own
Crying all alone, for all I've become

My life is wasted, I've ruined all I loved
I'm drowning here left all alone

A new home on the streets of Utopia
All that I was looking for
They gave me love, I brought them pain and I
I'm the only one to blame for sure

Why am I alive?
How can I live, live on?

In an endless ocean
The only one left here, still cheating the truth

Left alone, in this ocean left alone
Dying all alone, for all that I've done
Left alone, got my fears all by me own
Crying all alone, for all I've become





My life is wasted, I've ruined all I loved
I'm drowning here left all alone

Overall Meaning

"Left Alone" by Domain is a song about the consequences of one's actions, particularly those that result in the destruction of the things or people that one cares about. The lyrics describe a person who finds themselves stranded on an island that appears to be paradise. However, despite their good intentions, they end up causing destruction and chaos, ruining everything they had hoped to find. The song's protagonist is filled with regret and self-loathing as they reflect on the damage they have done and the fact that they are entirely alone, with nobody to share their pain.


The lyrics offer a glimpse into the feelings of isolation, betrayal, and self-punishment that often arise in the aftermath of tragic events. The singer is burdened by a sense of guilt and sees no way out of the situation. The metaphorical "endless ocean" represents the vast emptiness and hopelessness that they are experiencing. The only way they know how to cope is to cry and suffer all alone.


Overall, "Left Alone" is a haunting and emotional song that beautifully captures the complexities of human emotion and the devastating consequences of our actions. It's a reminder that sometimes the things we do can have far-reaching repercussions that protect and relentlessly haunt us for years to come.
