"Anonymous" is the twelfth track on Everything Will Be Alright in the End. It is the second part of "The Futurescope Trilogy".

Overview

Prior to finishing the mixing stage, the song went by the name, "My Mystery". It was previewed as such in the pre-release YouTube teaser EWBAITE 11 "My Mystery". This early version of the song was leaked online in December 2017. According to fans who attended listening parties prior to the release of the album, the song was indeed originally titled "Anonymous", and began as a "sprawling" 6-minute "epic" before being truncated into something that barely resembled the original version. At some point, the song's chorus was re-appropriated for a new song titled "Up in the Clouds".

Album lyrics

I don't even know your name
No, I don't know the words to say
So I call you Anonymous

Anonymous

So I look at my life
Look at my friends
Look in the eyes of my enemy
It's all just a gift that I am going to give to you

My Anonymous

Now I know, know what to call you
What to call you

Earlier lyrics, date unknown

[...] I don't want to call you Jesus
I don't want to call you Buddha
I don't want to call you Muhammad
I don't even know your name
No, I don't know the words to say
So I'll call you Anonymous [...]
