"To Whom It May Concern" as written by and Mark Tremonti Scott Stapp....
Oh, I didn't mean to yell
But sometimes I get beside myself
And oh, I didn't mean to rush you
But time keeps pushing so much
Oh, time keeps pushing so much
Your eyes stare at me in the dark
And I hope those eyes
Don't steal my freedom
My freedom

Oh, If I didn't give it all
When I stood you made me crawl
And oh, if you never heard the song
Then I could still hide down behind the wall
Then I could still hide down behind the wall
Your eyes stare at me in the dark

And I hope those eyes
Don't steal my freedom
My freedom
And I hope those eyes
Don't steal my freedom

My freedom, oh my freedom
Said eyes, those eyes
I said don't steal my freedom
Your eyes stare at me in the dark
And I hope those eyes
Don't steal my freedom

My freedom
Oh, my freedom
Your eyes stare at me in the dark
And I hope those eyes
Don't steal my freedom

My freedom
Oh, my freedom
Said eyes, those eyes
Said eyes, those eyes
I said don't steal my freedom

    General CommentI love this song, and the whole message (my oppinion about the message, anyways =O) ). . . I've heard it many times, over and over again, and I just can't help loving it =O)
    I think this song is actually about some trouble he'd gotten after some song - either from a person or just trouble in the big picture. . . . 'Cause he says in verse 12-13 he actually says "If you never heard the song, then I could still hide down behind the wall". And then this is his way of saying he's sorry, but that it was an quick impulse, that he didn't really mean anything by. . .
    Well, just my thought =O)

    General CommentThis song is great. It's strong, meaningful and has a mix of great beats. In the song Scott Stapp seems to be speaking I assume to a loved one (maybe his wife) and apologizing for some kind of verbal conflict that they were involved in. He hopes that it won't lead to further conflicts because he loves her and would "loose his freedom for her" but he doesn't want to. The song does a good job of fitting in the message with the changing melody.

    General CommentThis is the most painful song I've ever heard. I always think of my ex-girlfriend and they way she would look at me in my truck at night when I took her home. Her eyes would shine and she looked so beautiful...

    General Commentthis song is, in my opinion, one of their best songs... gets you there in your soft spot... and about the girl... ooooooo... it's like he meets this girl that he fears will threaten his lifestyle and he doesn't want change forced upon himself
