Is Anybody There?
is the song that John Adams sings when he's refering to the rest of Congress not seeing his way on Independence after the South walked out on Adams' defending Jefferson's clause against slavery.

TriviaEdit

  • Adams actually wanted the celebration of Independence to be on July 2 when the real Continental Congress adopts a resolution severing ties with Great Britain, but we celebrate it on July 4th, when the Declaration of Independence was adopted.

LyricsEdit

Adams:
Is anybody there?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?

They want to me to quit; they say
John, give up the fight
Still to England I say
Good night, forever, good night!
For I have crossed the Rubicon
Let the bridge be burned behind me
Come what may, come what may

Commitment!

The croakers all say we'll rue the day
There'll be hell to pay in fiery purgatory
Through all the gloom, through all the gloom
I see the rays of ravishing light and glory!

Is anybody there? Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?

I see fireworks! I see the pagaent and
Pomp and parade
I hear the bells ringing out
I hear the cannons roar
I see Americans - all Americans
Free forever more

How quiet, how quiet the chamber is
How silent, how silent the chamber is

Is anybody there? Does anybody care?
Does anybody see what I see?
