Hear Me Now is the first single by Hollywood Undead off of their album American Tragedy.

Background

J-Dog explained that the song is a little bit of a departure from what the world is used to hearing from us. "We had experimented with some new sounds and different ways of writing songs. Technically, when we wrote Hear Me Now, it was about what various people in the band were going through at the moment. It could mean something different to everyone because we have so many writers on each song. Everyone wrote his own part and based it on what he was going through in his own life. It's a deep song. It's about someone going through some tough times, getting dragged through the dirt, and where you come out in the end. It's like taking a look at yourself and realizing what you've been through. Everyone's been through some hard shit recently. I feel that song reflects on that. Anyone can connect to it."

Official Lyrics

Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
J-Dog: (Now!)
Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
(Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
J-Dog: (Now!)
Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)

J-Dog: As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I wear my crown of thorns and pull the knife out of my chest
I keep searching for something that I never seem to find
But maybe I won't because I left it all behind
Now I'm stuck with this and that'll never change
Always a part of me until the very last day
Where to go from here? What road to travel on?
I spent my whole life choosing and it always chose wrong
Will I try to have the will to be alive?
Will I try 'cause I've never seen the light?
Lowered to the ground and it's now you see
You spent your whole life taking the best of me

Danny: Where'd you go? Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
And there's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe when you're underground?
Can you hear me now?
Charlie Scene and Danny: Hear me now!
Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)

Johnny 3 Tears: How long can I keep pretending to be?
That all the stars in the sky could mean something to me?
Heaven will open up if I live on my knees
A man of many words but a man of few deeds
Walking these streets so absent of hope
Pillow of concrete, a man with no home
Lend him a hand, then we're walking away
Leave the virtue of pity but we live with the shame
So scared to dream in a world with no sunlight
When you wake up, you know, it's darker than last night
Quickly we forget, sacrifice gone by
Born to walk away, been walking my whole life

Danny: Where'd you go? Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
And there's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe when you're underground?
Can you hear me now?
Hear me now!

Charlie Scene and Danny: Look into my eyes and I see, what do I see?
Nothing at all
Danny: (Nothing at all!)
Charlie Scene and Danny: Take another look around me, what do I see?
Nothing at all

Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
J-Dog: (Now!)
Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)

Where'd you go? Where's your home?
How'd you end up all alone?
Can you hear me now?
And there's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe when you're underground?
(Ground!)
Can you hear me now?
Hear me now!

(Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
Charlie Scene: (Hear me now?)
Danny: (Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)
Can you hear me, hear me now?
(Now! Now! Now! Now! Now!)

Nothing at all
(No!)

There's no light, there's no sound
Hard to breathe when you're underground?
Can you hear me now?
