lyrics

Hello? Is there anybody there?
I can't hear you, are you trying to talk to me?
I'm alone here, on a boat i made myself
And i don't know just how long i've been at sea

Can you speak up?
I'm trying to get reception and it's
Harder than it looks
They didn't teach this
When i went to school
It didn't say in any of the books

That i'd be alone in a crowd
Silenced in a world that's too loud
Criticised for things i am proud
To have done

The sound of machines gets louder every day
They start to remind me why i sailed away
I wanted to lose myself right out at sea
To know what it's like to be free

Can you speak up?
I'm trying to get reception and it's
Harder than it looks
They didn't teach this
When i went to school
It didn't say in any of the books

That i'd be alone in a crowd
Silenced in a world that's too loud
Criticised for things i am proud
To have done
