"Stay Inside" as written by Howard Benson, Colin Kenneth Ellis, Frederick Iii Stephans, Cody James Jancovic, Joseph Arthur Brule and Brian Christopher Chiusano....
A suicide pact, a lit cigar
And a new way to sing along
In a dying culture that feeds on the blind
And waits for the lethal sickness

There's a boy out back with a gun to his chest
Like it's the only way to relieve stress
Then the culture dies and it leaves us blind
In the wake of our resistance

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

A case of hard facts and no one knows
Not a damn thing can be exposed
In this world of ours where we're living in hope
Despair is where we keep our wishes

Not alone or afraid, but afraid to recite
The words you hear and the wrongs you right
The world is ours but we're only in charge
Of our lives and how we live them

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

Today's abused
What is there for you
Just rise above the few
That lay in stone
Trying to obtain an idol to betray

Besides
There's so much on the line
Don't take a step back
Not one more step back

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

Boy, if you step outside
You'll never make it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
It's better just stay inside

Boy, when you step outside
You gotta face it
The world could be a bitter place sometimes
But you're gonna be just fine, you're gonna be just fine

You're gonna be just fine
You're gonna be just fine
Boy, don't step outside
Boy, don't step outside

    General CommentI think this song is basically about a boy whom feels left out in the world, and does not have any friends. He feels like no one cares about him so he thinks about suicide and almost committed suicide. He thinks its better to just stay inside since the outside world is so harsh. He eventually decides to make a change and he overcomes his depression and decides to make friends. He then realizes that the world is bad but there is also good and he is going to be just fine.

    Good band. Good song. However, I think I hear the girl from Automatic Loveletter? I don't think there is a girl in the band but I definately hear a girl voice.
