"Hear Me Now" as written by Jorel Decker, Daniel Murillo, George Arthur Ragan, Jordon Kristopher Terrell, Dylan Peter Alvarez, Matthew Busek, Samuel Hollander and David Anthony Katz....
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest
I keep searching for something that I never seem to find
But maybe I won't, because I left it all behind
Now I'm stuck with this, and that'll never change
Always a part of me, until the very last day
Where to go from here? What road to travel on?
I spent my whole life choosing, and it always chose wrong
Will I try to have the will to be alive?
Will I try because I've never seen the light?
Blow it to the ground and it's now you see
You spent your whole life taking the best of me

Where'd you go?
Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
There's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe, when you're underground
Can you hear me now?
Hear me now

How long can I keep pretending to be?
That all the stars in the sky could mean something to me
Heaven will open up if I live on my knees
A man of many words, but a man of few deeds
Walking these streets, so absent of hope
A pillow of concrete, a man with no home
Lend him a hand, then we're walking the way
Leave the virtue of pity, but we live with the shame
So scared to dream in a world with no sunlight
When you wake up, you know it's darker than last night
Quickly we forget, sacrifice gone by
Born to walk away, been walking my whole life

Where'd you go?
Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
There's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe, when you're underground
Can you hear me now?
Hear me now

Look into my eyes and I see
What do I see?
Nothing at all (nothing at all)
Take another look around me
What do I see?
Nothing at all

Where'd you go?
Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
There's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe, when you're underground
Can you hear me now?
Hear me now

Can you hear me?
Hear me now

    General CommentI interpret this song to be a pleading cry from someone who finds their life to be a dead end road. They seem to not be able to find a reason to go on, yet they're still searching. It's beautiful in it's own way... but it's also very dark. I also interpret this song as someone crying for someone to finally understand them, maybe even commiting suicide to get a point accross. Very nice. I love it!

    My OpinionThis song is great. It proves that HU can survive without Deuce. HU4L.

    General CommentIdk about anyone else, but to me this song sounds like a rejection of religion or of god. The lyrics at the beginning, as well as the lines:
    "Look into my eyes and I see
    What do I see? Nothing at all
    Take another look around me
    What do I see? Nothing at all"

    To me it sounds like a person whose gone through hard times, and asked for help from a higher power and not recieved any. This man being virtuous and kind, doing everything he was told to isn't getting any help when he's in trouble which has led him to doubt that a higher power is even there and he's asking for a response.

    General CommentThis song is great! It almost has the sound of old Linkin Park music. The lyrics seem pretty open top interpretation. I got the vibe of someone who has made really poor choices in their life and kinda wants to have a better life and be a better person, but the problem is that he can't see the light in it and can't see enough good in the world to make changing worthwhile.

    That's the best I can come up with anyway

    General CommentA pillow of concrete, a man with no home.
    Lend him a hand, then we�re walking the way.
    Leave the virtue of pity, but we live with the shame.
    So scared to dream in a world with no sunlight.
    When you wake up, you know it�s darker than last night.
    Quickly we forget, sacrifice gone by.
    Born to walk away, been walking my whole life.

    I feel like this song is calling out deuce a little bit in this verse especially like he messed up by leaving and hes never gonna find his home again....

    General CommentI don't know why, but when I heard this song I thought the same thing that j3tistheman
    did. For some reason I figured that they were talking to Deuce in some way but then I figured that if they kicked him out then why would they write a song about him? Of course things are never that simple. This song reminds me of my best friend becuse of the "Where'd you go, where's your home, How'd you end up all alone" thing. But i think it's about someone just not hearing them. You never really know the TRUE meaning of a song unless the band tells it themselves. But what do I know?

    My InterpretationI think that this song is about someone making poor choices and asking God for direction but he doesn't give any and he wonders if God exists. In the first verse, he is asking God what he should do next, but God isn't answering his calls. In the second verse, he is wondering if God even exist.

    "How long can I keep pretending to be?
    That all the stars in the sky could mean something to me.
    Heaven will open up if I live on my knees.
    A man of many words, but a man of few deeds."

    My InterpretationI'm going to write my interpretation considering what's going on in my life right now.

    As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, (every day feels lifeless)
    I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out my chest.(being bullied and backstabbed)
    I keep searching for something that I never seem to find.(hope)
    But maybe I won't, because I left it all behind.(gave up)
    Now I'm stuck with this, and that'll never change(made mistakes)
    Always a part of me, until the very last day.(my mistakes shaped me)
    Where to go from here? What road to travel on?(what do i do with my life)
    I spent my whole life choosing, and I always chose wrong(made mistakes(
    Will I try to have the will to be alive?(should i end it?)
    Will I try because I've never seen the light?(all happiness has been taken from me)
    Blow it to the ground and it's now you see,(you won't realize what you've done when if i kill myself)
    You spent your whole life taking the best of me(they always bullied me)

    Where'd you go?(i lost my hope)
    Where's your home?(where's the love and kindness)
    How'd you end up all alone?(all my friends are leaving me and hate me)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    There's no light, there's no sound.(happiness and hope has left me)
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground.(being buried in sorrow)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    Hear me now

    How long can I keep pretending to be?(wearing a mask of happiness/pretending to be happy)
    That all the stars in the sky could mean something to me.(nothing matters to me anymore, i don't matter)
    Heaven will open up if I live on my knees.(God's supposed to help me if i pray)
    A man of many words, but a man of few deeds.(i cry for help but never take action)
    Walking these streets, so absent of hope.(hopeless)
    A pillow of concrete, a man with no home.
    Lend him a hand, then we're walking the way.
    Leave the virtue of pity, but we live with the shame.
    So scared to dream in a world with no sunlight.(i can't imagine a better world because all hope and emotion has been taken from me)
    When you wake up, you know it's darker than last night.(every day is worse and worse)
    Quickly we forget, sacrifice gone by.
    Born to walk away, been walking my whole life.


    Where'd you go?(i lost my hope)
    Where's your home?(where's the love and kindness)
    How'd you end up all alone?(all my friends are leaving me and hate me)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    There's no light, there's no sound.(happiness and hope has left me)
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground.(being buried in sorrow)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    Hear me now

    Look into my eyes and I see
    What do I see?
    Nothing at all(lifeless and emotionless)
    Take another look around me
    What do I see?
    Nothing at all(no hope)

    Where'd you go?(i lost my hope)
    Where's your home?(where's the love and kindness)
    How'd you end up all alone?(all my friends are leaving me and hate me)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    There's no light, there's no sound.(happiness and hope has left me)
    Hard to breathe, when you're underground.(being buried in sorrow)
    Can you hear me now?(killing myself)
    Hear me now

    Can you hear me?(killing myself)
    Hear me now
