can i please come down?

Can anybody hear me? 
Am I talking to myself? 

My mind is running empty 
In the search for someone
Else 
Who doesn't look right through me 
It's all just static in my
Head 
Can anybody tell me why I'm lonely like a satellite?

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut 
Sending SOS from this tiny box 
And I
Lost all signal when I lifted up 
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot

Can I please come down (come down) 
Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
(And round) Can I please
Come down?

I'm deaf from all the silence 
Is it something that I've done?

I know that there are millions 
I can't be the only
One who's so disconnected 
It's so different in my head. 
Can anybody tell me
Why I'm lonely like a satellite?

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut 
Sending SOS from this tiny box 
And I
Lost all signal when I lifted up 
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot

Can I please come down (come down) 
Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
(And round) Can I please
Come down?

Now I lie awake and scream in a zero gravity 
And it's starting to weigh down on me. 
Let's abort
This mission now 
Can I please come down?

So tonight I'm calling all astronauts 
All lonely people that the
World forgot 
If you hear my voice come pick me up 
Are you out there? 

'Cause you're all I've got! 

And tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut 
Sending SOS from this tiny box 
And
I lost all signal when I lifted up 
Now I'm stuck out here and the world
Forgot 

Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut 
Sending SOS from this tiny box 
To
The lonely people that the world forgot Are you out there? 
Cause you're all I've got! 
Can I
Please come down? (please please please) 
Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round. 
Can I please come
Down?

- Simple Plan, 2013 (Astronaut)




"Being human is the most terrible loneliness in the universe" -  AA Attanasio


It's amazing how even after so many years, Simple Plan is still able to produce music such as this that pierces right through your soul and brings out everything that you're feeling now.

Loneliness. The feeling that you're an island among the sea of people. That somehow you're just different in a way that you just cannot connect with others. No matter how hard you try, people just don't see you in the same way and somehow you feel that everything is so pointless too. This feeling of solitude, it has always been a part of my life. Sometimes, I wish I could just be like everyone else and turn off this part of me that makes me so different.

Can I please finally come down?
