Somehow we survive
We don't even try
We don't like who we are but we pretend anyway
Because we're human as such
We long for someone to touch
A little death to escape a shallow grave with a face
Because we're

Anyone
Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody
Anyone
Is there anybody out there
Anyone
Is there anybody

Calling anybody (Is there anybody)

Somehow we collide
We don't even know why
We can't quite comprehend what makes us crawl in our skin
Because we're empty inside
We get no thrill from this life
Consumed by pillars of fire
Convicted by our desire to just find

Anyone
Is there anybody out there
Is there anybody
Anyone
Is there anybody out there
Anyone
Is there anybody

Anyone
Anyone
Calling anybody out there
Anyone (Is there anybody)

    General CommentI can't believe there are no posts on this song. Well, I've started to listen to them, so I'm a bit late on the bandwagon. BUT! I love this song, because of the lyrics and the cool beat. I think he's trying to say that we're just human, and we don't understand much because we're empty inside (you could have just gotten that from the lyrics too). Well, I like this song; its awesome.

    General CommentI think this song is about searching for a partner, or someone to be close to. It seems to me to be a comment on how that search is a hugely important factor of many people's lives and how some people don't really know what to do without a significant other, so when they break up with someone will soon go looking for someone else to fill the void ("we're empty inside") and will see getting someone to be with at all to be more important that who the person they're with is ("our desire to just find / Anyone"). Some people will even go to the extent of pretending to be someone they're not in order to attract a partner ("We don't like who we are but we pretend anyway / Because we're human as such / We long for someone to touch"), even though if you have to pretend to be someone else to attract that person the chances are you're not really suited to each other.

    To me this song seems a rather bleak look at society's sometimes quite shallow attitudes towards finding a partner and how shallow relationships ("A little death* to escape") are used to try and 'cure' a deeper sense of loneliness ("Is there anybody out there?").

    *'little death' being a phrase meaning orgasm, in case anyone didn't know.
