[Intro]
Hey yo, Before I start this song man
I just want to thank everybody for being so patient
And bearing with me over these last couple of years
While I figure this shit out

[Chorus - Kobe]
Is anybody out there? It feels like I'm talkin to myself
No one seems to know my struggle, and everything I come from
Can anybody hear me? Yeah, I guess I keep talkin' to myself
It feels like I'm goin' insane, am I the one who's crazy?

Yeah
Woah-ah
Woah-ah (oh oh oh oh oh)
Woah-ah
Woah-ah (oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)

[Bridge - Eminem]
So why in the world do I feel so alone
Nobody but me, I'm on my own
Is there anyone out there, who feels the way I feel? If there is then let me in so that I know that I'm not the only one

[Eminem]
I went away I guess and opened up some lanes
But there was no one who even knew I was goin' through, growin' pains
Hatred was flowin' through my veins, on the verge of goin' insane
I almost made a song dissin' Lil Wayne
It's like I was jealous of him 'cause of the attention he was gettin'
I felt horrible about myself, he was spittin'
And I wasn't, anyone who was buzzin' back then could have got it
Almost went at Kanye too, got it
Feels like I'm goin' psychotic, thank God that I didn't do it
I'da had my ass handed to me, and I knew it
But proof isn't here to see me through it
I'm in the booth poppin' another pill tryin' to talk myself into it
Are you stupid? You're gon' start dissin' people for no reason
'Specially when you can't even write a decent punch line even?
You're lyin' to yourself
Your slowly dyin' you're denyin' your health is declining with your self esteem, your crying out for help

[Chorus - Kobe]
Is anybody out there? It feels like I'm talkin to myself
No one seems to know my struggle, and everything I come from
Can anybody hear me? Yeah, I guess I keep talkin' to myself
It feels like I'm goin' insane, am I the one whose crazy?

[Bridge - Eminem]
So why in the world do I feel so alone
Nobody but me, I'm on my own
Is there anyone out there, who feels the way I feel? If there is then let me in so I know that I'm not the only one

[Eminem]
Marshall you're no longer the man, that's a bitter pill to swallow
All I know is that I'm wallowin', self-loathin' and hollow
Bottoms up on the pill bottle maybe I'll hit my bottom tomorrow
My sorrow echo's in this hall though
(Oh-oh-oo, whoa) but I must be talkin' to the wall though, I don't see nobody else
I guess I keep talkin' to myself
But all these other rappers suck is all that I know
I've turned into a hater, I put up a false bravado
But Marshall is not an egomaniac that's not his motto
He's not a desperado he's desperate, his thoughts are bottled
Inside him, one foot on the break, one on the throttle
Fallin' asleep with writers block in the parkin' lot of McDonald's
But instead of feelin' sorry for yourself do somethin' 'bout it
Admit you got a problem, your brain is clouded you pouted
Long enough, it isn't them its' you you fuckin' baby
Quit worryin' about what they do and do Shady, I'm fuckin' goin' crazy

[Chorus - Kobe]
Is anybody out there? It feels like I'm talkin to myself
No one seems to know my struggle, and everything I come from
Can anybody hear me? Yeah, I guess I keep talkin' to myself
It feels like I'm goin' insane, am I the one whose crazy?

[Bridge - Eminem]
So why in the world do I feel so alone
Nobody but me, I'm on my own
Is there anyone out there, who feels the way I feel? If there is then let me in so I know that I'm not the only one

[Eminem]
So I picked myself off the ground and fuckin' swam 'fore I drowned
Hit my bottom so hard I bounced twice, suffice this time around
It's different, them last two albums didn't count
Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushin' 'em out
I've come to make it up to you now no more fuckin' around
I got something to prove to fans 'cause I feel like I let 'em down
So please except my apology I finally feel like I'm back to normal
I feel like me again, let me formally
Reintroduce myself to you for those of you who don't know no
The new me's back to the old me and homie I don't show no
Signs of slowin' up oh and I'm blowin' up all over my life is no longer a movie, but the show ain't over homos
I'm back with a vengeance, homie, Weezy keep ya' head up
T.I. keep ya' head up, Kanye keep ya' head up don't let up
Just keep slayin' 'em, rest in peace to DJ AM
'Cause I know what it's like, I struggle with this shit every single day and um

[Chorus - Kobe]
Is anybody out there? It feels like I'm talkin to myself
No one seems to know my struggle, and everything I come from
Can anybody hear me? Yeah, I guess I keep talkin' to myself
It feels like I'm goin' insane, am I the one whose crazy?

[Bridge - Eminem]
So why in the world do I feel so alone
Nobody but me, I'm on my own
Is there anyone out there, who feels the way I feel? If there is then let me in so I know that I'm not the only one

So there it is... damn, it feels like I just woke up or something. I guess I just forgot who the fuck I was, man. Aye yo, and to anybody that I thought about going at, it was never nothin' personal. It was jus' some shit I was going through. And to everybody else... I'm back (haha)

    I think the meaning of this song is when your depressed you think of the worst of yourself and your pears.. But when you finally wake up and relize this is life.. You have to enjoy it and live the way you feel whats best. Everything works out in the end no matter how hard life treats you. Also i think the meaning is you feel alone and when your calling out for help, and you feel like no one els feels like the way you feel, you cant talk to anyone.. You feel like no one can help, you just want to be alone you feel theres no one out there. You hit bottom.. But you swim to save your everything becasue.. There is someone out there. Theres someone out there that dose feel your pain, your hurt, your sorrow.. Someone.. Is out there.

    I think that it means that eminem is talkin to himself and that no one listens to him... And that in the first verse he was thinking to diss lil wayne and kanye but he didn't because he thought that they were really good...
