"S.O.S" as written by Benji Madden and Joel Madden....
Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air,
'cause I need somebody's help.
I can't make it on my own,
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I've been stranded here and I'm miles away.
Making signals hoping they save me
I lock myself inside these walls
'cause out there I'm always wrong.
I don't think I'm gonna make it.
So while I'm sitting here on the eve of my defeat
I write this letter and hope it saves me

Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
'cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I'm stuck in my own head and I'm oceans away.
Would anybody notice if I chose to stay?
I send an S.O.S. tonight
I wonder if I will survive
How in the hell did I get so far away this time?
So while I'm sitting here
The time of my departure's near.
Say a prayer please someone save me.

Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
'cause I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
So I'm giving up myself
Is anybody listening?
Listening

I'm lost here
I can't make it on my own
I don't want to die alone
I'm so scared
Drowning now
Reaching out
Holding onto everything I love
Crying out
Dying now
Need some help!

Is anybody listening?
Can you hear me when I call?
Shooting signals in the air
I need somebody's help
I can't make it on my own
I'm giving up myself.
Is anybody listening?

    General CommentOK to clear up any questions about this song, S.O.S is sorta like HOLD ON, except it's more descriptive of things people think about! They are calling out for help in this song and in HOLD ON, they were saying, bascially to HOLD ON

    General Commentthis song is the follow up to hold on... in hold on they r telling u to not let the world affect u and to stay in this world.... in S.O.S. they r calling out for help... they cant handle the world but they dont want to leave it... they need some ones help.... this song is the after math of hold on... this song will help a lot of ppl who want to commit suicide...

    General CommentWell. This song has both helped and hurt me. I was at that point. That point of no return. And I turned on this song. Not a good idea. It made me feel worse and do what I (now) regret. Fortunatly, it didn't work. So, this song really won't help people...hold on will more than this will.
