Lyrics:

Not a sound to be heard
Not a noise or a word
I’m alone in myself, and I’m fallin’

Descending from the sky
Without a reason why
I don’t know who I am, but I’m callin’

Will anybody hear my cry
Will anybody listen
Can’t you see I’m stuck inside
No place for me to go
I need a chance to be someone
These chains around me broken
I need to step outside,
Step outside and live.

I’m walking through the trees
See the patterns in the leaves
They’re illusions lost in time, still I’m fallin’

Only in my dreams
Will I see runnin’ streams
Nothin’ ever works still I’m callin’

Will anybody hear my cry
Will anybody listen
Can’t you see I’m stuck inside
No place for me to go
I need a chance to be someone
These chains around me broken
I need to step outside,
Step outside and live.

Only in my dreams
Will I see runnin’ streams
Nothin’ ever works still I’m callin’

No one seems to care
My torture I can’t bear
A gun at my head no more callin’

Will anybody hear my cry
Will anybody listen
Can’t you see I’m stuck inside
No place for me to go
I need a chance to be someone
These chains around me broken
I need to step outside,
Step outside and live.
