"Let It Out" as written by and Aarron/mushok Lewis....
There's nothing left
Nothing left to hold onto
There is no reason for me to fight anymore

I let it all go
It'll be easier I know
The weight on my shoulders tells me so

So now I stand here
To sing another song for you
About the pain I've felt before
When there was nothing I could do

Now I stand here
With nothing left to say to you
And if you all could sing along
It might help me make it through

I try to move on
Nothing left to hurt me now
I hope it's all in the past to stay

Just try to see through
All the fucked up shit we do
And hope that we all don't drift away

So now I stand here
To sing another song for you
About the pain I've felt before
When there was nothing I could do

So now I stand here
With nothing left to say to you
And if you all could sing along
It might help me make it through

So let it all out
Nothing left to hold onto
There is no reason for me to fight anymore

I let it all go
Feels so much better, now I know
The weight on my shoulders tells me so

So now I stand here
To sing another song for you
About the pain I've felt before
When there was nothing I could do

So now I stand here
With nothing left to say to you
And if you all could sing along
It might help me make it through

There's nothing left
None of it's worth holding onto
There is no reason for you to fight anymore

    General CommentMm. Lovely. A bonustrack on the 14 Shades Of Grey dvd. And actually I think, that this one song, which isn't on the album, is the most beautiful of all the "new" songs..

    General CommentThis song is with the Limited Edition Chapter V CD/DVD. Amazing song, one of the best new ones they have had with Aaron mostly acoustic. Right up there almost past Outside.

    General CommentI just bought the CD/DVD of Chapter V. This song is amazing. The melody and harmonics are just beautiful. This song was the main reason I bought the CD/DVD. I already have CD of Chapter V, but it was worth getting again just to have this song. AMAZING.

    General CommentLet it Out is a true Master Piece. This song is percieve able in 2 very polar ways. The Literal message of the song is basically Aaron Lewis's life has turned so much and he doesn't need to hold on to his sorrow and past any more. He knows by letting it go he'll be better off. However he Knows that there are Fans who expect his music to be "Darker" and more consistent with lyrics of the past. But he knows that He doesn't have that Sorrow, that never dying conflict, so theres not as much left to speak about to his audience. He believes that if you join in this feeling you'll make it through as well.

    however me personally the way i relate to this song is a feelin of hopelessness in light. Theres no point in holding on to an Existanec that isn't going any where. I've announced and spoken about my issues for so long that i cant say anything New. Theres nothing in the world left to comfort me and to "fight" over. and to me Let it out is basically a relation to being better off in Death than in life. BUT thats jyst MY percieving of it. remeber Aaron Lewis doesn't condone Suicide. *cough waste cough*

    General Commentthis song was suposed to go on the 14 shades of grey album but they didnt think it was good enough if you buy the chapter V dvd thing it comes with a cd and this song is on it but I think that it is kind of a statement from Aaron on how he has started to grow a little bit if you listen to their first couple of albums you see how "dark" or painful his lyrics are but since he has got married and had kids he is alot happier and has let go of alot of his anger so his lyrics arent going to be as dark or painful just perosnal thought still I think this is one of their best songs and one of my favorites of all time great song glad they put it out some how
