Is this where the interstate ends?
In coastal towns like this
Waiting for my world to cave under
We seem to invent ourselves (we seem to invent ourselves)
In the places left unknown
If hope could only find me out

Is this the end of everything we’ve known? (We’ve known)
This is the end of everything I am

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive

Depression is the unholy ghost
In the coastal towns of ahead
Though I know a thousand names
I see my only friend
I’ve got the gun
All I need is ten cents for the bullet
I feel helpless, sleeping at best, waiting for your return
Are you ever coming home?

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive on broken homes
Broken homes

Does anybody (Does anybody)
Do they ever listen? (Do they ever listen?)
Does anybody (Does anybody)
Care at all?!
Do they care at all?
Do they care at all?
Do they care at all?
Do you care at all? Do you care at all?!

Is this the end of everything we’ve known? (We’ve known)
This is the end of everything I am

Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
Cause the coldest winters thrive on broken homes
Is anybody out there?
Hello! Hello!
Broken hearts like promises are left for lesser knowns
Is anybody out there?
Alone! Alone!
From a lesser known I’m here
and there’s hope, there’s hope
