  • As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
    I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest
    I keep searching for something that I never seem to find
    But maybe I won't, because I left it all behind
    Now I'm stuck with this, and that'll never change
    Always a part of me, until the very last day
    Where to go from here? What road to travel on?
    I spent my whole life choosing, and it always chose wrong
    Will I try to have the will to be alive?
    Will I try because I've never seen the light?
    Blow it to the ground and it's now you see
    You spent your whole life taking the best of me

    Where'd you go?
    Where's your home?
    How'd you end up all alone?
    Can you hear me now?
    There's no light, there's no sound
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground
    Can you hear me now?
    Hear me now

    How long can I keep pretending to be?
    That all the stars in the sky could mean something to me
    Heaven will open up if I live on my knees
    A man of many words, but a man of few deeds
    Walking these streets, so absent of hope
    A pillow of concrete, a man with no home
    Lend him a hand, then we're walking the way
    Leave the virtue of pity, but we live with the shame
    So scared to dream in a world with no sunlight
    When you wake up, you know it's darker than last night
    Quickly we forget, sacrifice gone by
    Born to walk away, been walking my whole life

    Where'd you go?
    Where's your home?
    How'd you end up all alone?
    Can you hear me now?
    There's no light, there's no sound
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground
    Can you hear me now?
    Hear me now

    Look into my eyes and I see
    What do I see?
    Nothing at all (nothing at all)
    Take another look around me
    What do I see?
    Nothing at all

    Where'd you go?
    Where's your home?
    How'd you end up all alone?
    Can you hear me now?
    There's no light, there's no sound
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground
    Can you hear me now?
    Hear me now

    Can you hear me?

  • Aaron Gilbert from Cedar Rapids I deeply connect to this I put the song "here me now" on repeat all day every day I've been through a lot of tragedy in life and songs like this help me get through it and help me see the light at the end of that tunnel so thank you Hollywood Undead you have helped me with my depression once again when I was in a dark place you pulled me out of it so thank you I wish I could meet you guys and thank you in person one-day #HollywoodUndead #youRock
