"Everything To Lose" as written by and Christopher Taylor/ormandy Brown....
So is it true?
Are they better than you?
Are you playing it cool?
Lips sealed, holding back the truth

So hard to make it through
That past always catches up with you
So afraid of what you'll do
When no one's there to help you choose

And if you ever decide to speak the truth now
When they cast the first stones
They will cast them at you
They will cast them at you

Alone in a crowded room
Forever beaming out at you
Laid down so they can dance all over you
You only have everything to lose

At home, it all casts you
And that mask you wear is wearing you
You've found a new romance
You only have everything to lose

A certain charm
You do not possess
I know you can't confess
Who feels sick of your distress

Some things will never change
Deep under the ground, you'll make your way
The choice has just been made
Sit back and fucking pray

And if you ever decide to speak the truth now
When they cast the first stones
They will cast them at you
They will cast them at you

Alone in a crowded room
Forever beaming out at you
Laid down, so they can dance all over you
You only have everything to lose

At home it all casts you
And that mask you wear is wearing you
You've found a new romance
You only have everything to lose
Everything to lose

When they cast the first stones
When they cast the first stones
They will cast them at you

They will cast them at you
They will cast them at you
Cast them at you

Alone in a crowded room
Forever beaming out at you
Laid down, so they can dance all over you
You only have everything to lose

At home it all casts you
And that mask you wear is wearing you
You've found a new romance
You only have everything to lose
Everything to lose
Everything to lose

    General CommentTo me, this song is about someone who has a secret they are hiding, or are afraid to be who they are because of the pressure they have around them. I know this feeling all to well, and to me the most powerful line in the song is "Alone in a crowded room". That feeling can be so real, especially when you are hiding something from everyone and if they were to know this secret, they would "Cast their first stones, they will cast them at you".

    Trapt makes suchs a deep and real connection with almost all their songs, and that's why they are the band they are today. They may not be the most popular but they have the best fans. :D

    General CommentTo elaborate on what Mfrieler said:
    Its about someone who is trying to hide his past from his friends, but its always in the back of his mind. With no-one to turn to for advice he's all alone; its up to him. His mind, torn in two("That mask you wear is wearing you"), is too woried about what others will think thats its begining to envelope his identity ("Everything to lose").
