A child can barely sleep at night
Too worried about tomorrow
And what it behold, he drowned himself
Deep down in his sorrows

from B.o.B (Ft. Janelle Monae) – The Kids Lyrics on Rap Genius

Unfortunately his worries got the best of him and he never had a chance to live because of them, causing him to sink down deep in distress.
