Simple Plan: Astronaut Meaning
Song Released: 2011
Or am I talking to myself?
My mind is running empty
In this search for someone else
Who doesn't look right through me.
It's all just static in my head
Can anybody tell me why I'm lonely like a satellite?

Personally, I think this song is about a guy who really likes this girl, but she doesn`t even notice him. He wants her to notice him and he`s trying to get her attention

I think that the narrator is just lonely, He doesn't fit in with the others, he's considered an "outcast" and he just... is lonely. When he says "Now I'm stuck out here and the world forgot" i think he means that no one really cares about him, no one nocices. I also think that when he says "Can anybody tell me why I'm lonely like a satellite?" he means that he wants to know why the others don't like him, why he's so different. I also think that when he says "Can i pleeeaase come down" it's kinda pointed at his peers, and he's kinda asking "can i be accepted? Can i be 'normal'?"
Anyways, that's just what i think.

This song means that the main video clip hero (guy with astronaut costume) is lonely. Don't think that he's somewhere in moon or any other planet without other people it's just a beautiful metaphor... There are many lonely people walking around us, but feeling like astronauts, thinking that they're different from other people, because other people don't talk with them or mock them. Lyrics "Sending SOS from this tiny box", "Can I please come down, cause I'm tired of drifting round and round", "Can I please come down?" means that the hero tries to be like other people, but hey! We are humans and we all are different, so we just have to be yourself. With this song Simple Plan wants to tell that they're not alone (lyrics: "I know that there are millions people that the world forgot"). They say that it's not true and they're just different (for example likes different things in compare with people around them). The girl at the ending of the clip is most likely like him (lonely), but then they found each other and they're not lonely anymore. If you are feeling lonely or "not like others" it's not true. Allot of super talented people where different (for example: Mozart, creating melodies and playing them all day, all night, Bill Gates programming Windows all day, all night, Steve Jobs creating Apple products). It's even better to be different and not like everyone, because sometime people are just jealous, because you're more beautiful, richer or you are more talented than them, so they mock you because they don't have the things that YOU do and they just want to be better than YOU, so don't give up! You are not alone in this world and you will surely find people like you, like this astronaut from the Simple Plan video clip did!

This is a song that reminds me of my past...
Being an Outcast and a Loner.
The song implies that some people are really alone in this world, they want to love someone but with no avail they dont have any connection at all, which kinda sad to some of us like me...

This song is about a lonely people who looking for someone. He feels like an astronaut and lost his communications with other people-'Cause tonight I'm feeling like an astronaut
Sending SOS from this tiny box
And I lost all signal when I lifted up"-- and nobody cares about it. He gets tired of being lonely and hoping someones out there will come for him.

It means that he is lonely. He is not with anyone though he wants to. He feels very lonely. He likes this girl but she doesn't like him back. Thus, he feels LONELY.
