I've been moving in the wrong direction
I've been looking for something that's gone
Is there anybody who can hear me?
Is there anybody home?
Is there anybody home?

Tell me, where are all the happy people?
 Where is the simple song?
Even the birds have lost their music

Tell me what is going on
Well, tell me what is going on

And we live our lives through magazines 
And see our neighbors on TV 
Hope someday that we can be like them
And ain't it sad that deep inside 
We lost ourselves and don't know why
I look up to the sky when I'm alone 
And I wonder is there's anybody home

Everybody's gonna say it's crazy 
They say that it can't be done
When did we all stopped dreaming
 About a world where everyone belongs
 Where everyone belongs 

The children lost their childhood
The mothers have lost their strength
The fathers have to keep on working 

Till the day the money's spent 
Oh, before they drop and die

Well, we turn our back on what is real
We don't even know how it feels  Really want to buy a bigger car
Baby ain't it true that deep in you
This feeling lives and lingers too
You look up to the sky when you're alone 
And you wonder is there's anybody home

Tell me, tell me, tell me what is going on
We live our lives through magazines 
We see our neighbors on TV 
Hope someday we'll be like them
We lost ourselves and don't know why
I look up to the sky when I'm alone 
And I wonder is there anybody home
Is there anybody home
