Chester Bennington of the group ‘Linkin Park‘ was a champion for millions, being a voice for so many coping with mental illness while validating and acknowledging their experiences.
“Somewhere I belong” is a deeply emotional song. Bennington, who tragically died by suicide, sings about the unbearable loneliness and pain that he feels as he struggles to find people that can relate to him.
“I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long
(Erase all the pain ’til it’s gone)
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong”
