"Astronaut" as written by and Pierre/comeau Bouvier....
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 off
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
Can I please come down, come down
'Cause I'm tired of drifting 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 off
Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot
Can I please come down, come down
'Cause I'm tired of drifting 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, whoa
Let's abort this mission now
Can I please come down?

So tonight I'm calling all astronauts
All the 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?
'Cause I'm tired of drifting round and round
(Can I please come down?)

    General CommentWell no one is going to be useful so I guess I'll be. Pretty obvious what it means. He feels like he has no one that he can talk to, even though he's probably physically surrounded by people. This is kind of like I'm Just a Kid in a way. He wants to find someone to just talk to or something because he's tired of not relating to anyone.

    This is kinda how I feel since my best friend moved and turned into an asshole. It was probably a bad idea to put all my energy into one person, but I have trouble making friends with anyone that I can relate to.

    Lyric CorrectionCan 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

    Cuz 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 deafen 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

    Cuz 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 the lonely people that the world forgot
    If you hear my voice come pick me up, are you out there, cuz you're all I've got

    General CommentThe song might be about someone feeling lonely even though he's surrounded by people and has all he needs, but I don't see it from this viewpoint.

    I relate to it because it explains how lonely I personally feel and I do not have any friends, so nobody to lean on because my family seems to have much more overwhelming problems than I do...

    General CommentI feel this song could be an asexual anthem

    General Commentwell, i think the "I" in the song has friends, has a job and everything he needs, but he still feels lost because he has nobody to love and be loved, nobody to turn to in hard times, nobody who is there for him/her. he/she fells lonely because he/she has not the felling to LIVE, only to act what the others tells him/her.

    this song really describs my feelings although i'm not brave enough to tell. yes, I feel lonely, and I need some love.
