  • Is there anybody out there?
    Is there anybody out there?
    Is there anybody out there?
    Is there anybody out there?

    Oh, come on
    Is there anybody out there?

    I was born as a bastard, no father, no master
    A shadow in silence left searching for answers
    Put up for adoption and left with no option
    Another kid fostered to fester forgotten
    Take a look into these desperate eyes
    As they’re cast into the wretched hive

    But I ain’t going down alone
    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody listening to me?
    Is anybody else scared?
    The paranoia, drops me to my knees
    Does anybody feel lonely?
    Disconnected from the things I see
    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody out there just like me?
    I’m choking on these words and I can’t breathe

    Come on
    Is there anybody out there?

    Now I stand as a father, to men with no honor
    Ashamed of the racists I used to call brothers
    'Cause no flag can mean bravery when bloodied by slavery
    The rebel, a devil, disguised as a savior
    And the sickening feeling in the air
    Is the fear to speak that no one dares

    So will I stand here all alone?
    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody listening to me?
    Is anybody else scared?
    The paranoia, drops me to my knees
    Does anybody feel lonely?
    Disconnected from the things I see
    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody out there just like me?
    I’m choking on these words and I can’t breathe

    Live my life like I’ll die tonight
    Dream like I’ll live forever
    Live my life like I’ll die tonight
    Dream like I’ll live forever

    I have roared at the world for years
    Doesn’t anybody hear me?
    This burden suffered, I’ve paid the cost
    Not all who wander are lost

    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody listening to me?
    Is anybody else scared?
    The paranoia, drops me to my knees
    Does anybody feel lonely?
    Disconnected from the things I see
    Is there anybody out there?
    Anybody out there just like me?
    I’m choking on these words and I can’t breathe

    Come on
    Is there anybody out there?
    Is there anybody out there? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
