Can anybody hear me?
Or 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)
Because I'm tired of drifting round and round (and round)
Can I please come down?

I'm deafened by 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)
Because 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 (I'm tired of drifting round)
Can I please come down? (please please please)
Can I please come down?
Can I please come down?

    I guess it's about being alone and astronauts are the best example for loneliness because they are out there in space alone nobody to count on if they are scared

    When I watched the MV, I was confused. You're at the outer space... you're at some moon for goodness' sake! And then... at the near end, they took off their helmets... shouldn't they choke from lack of oxygen? I'm now confused.

    This song describes the loneliness you feel when nobody is by your side and you feel like you don't care to anyone. Am i right?

    To me this song makes reference to someone that is living with a mental illness. On the same album there are songs that have been written and used in the Mental Health Industry for healing. Not to mention their other albums that include somewhat of the same message.
