"Outrage" as written by and John Parker / Compton....
I'll take the blame for you for taking one
Chance away from me at getting over this
And what you were to me, your work is done
I'm laughing, after all we're getting too old for this

And what a pretty night, what a pretty night
You finally fit into my shoes, I'm never dressed for the occasional
Invasion of surprises, I don't get surprised
You think your secret's safe with you
I'll catch it swinging through the grapevine

It's time I let you go
And here's looking at you, kid
Your last word comes out
Slower than you thought it would
It?s all you ever wanted

But you couldn't see me coming with the lights out
You're gonna find out, I'll leave you raining on your own parade
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade

I'm taking shame with you for taking 2
Too many years that could have lasted, now, we'll never get back
But tonight the moon will set the mood
I'm a train routed off course just to keep on track

And what a petty crime, what a petty crime
How could you be anything but greedy when it?s all that you know?
Give another try, give another try
But if you're one for the money than you're too good to show on time

I let you down
And here's looking at you, kid
Now, that I found
And caught you red handed
I'm the last man standing

?Cause you couldn't see me coming with the lights out
You're gonna find out, I'll leave you raining on your own parade
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade

You couldn't see me coming with the lights out
You're gonna find out, I'll leave you raining on your own parade
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade

Take my goodbyes with love and meaningful lyrics
I got you this time, I got you this time
A closing line unannounced and breaking your spirits
A curtain call cry, I got you this time, I got you this time

It's happened all before, with you the one to call it short
But girl, when I say that it's over then it?s over for good
We're nothing now but history
I'll leave you reminiscing in a diary regretting paying dues

You couldn't see me coming with the lights out
You're gonna find out, I'll leave you raining on your own parade
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade

You couldn't see me coming with the lights out
You're gonna find out, I'll leave you raining on your own parade
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade

You couldn't see me coming with the lights out
Soon you're gonna find that I'll take you out, this is an outrage
Gung ho, you let your guard down, you're nothing but a write-out
I'll leave you raining on your own parade, yeah
I'll leave you raining on your own parade, yeah

    Song MeaningNo no no... ive finally figured out what this song is talking about. And my theory is that all or most of Capital lights's songs have historical meanings just like in the Song Frank Morris (which is really about Morris escaping from Alcatraz, just google his name) anyways This song (outrage) has got to be about the classic movie "Casa Blanca" and if you've seen the movie you would know that the main character is always saying "heres looking at you kid" this and other instances in the song lyrics match up pretty darn close to the story plot in the movie Casa Blanca. And if you've never seen the movie i suggest you go and see it cause its a great movie in the first place. anyways my conclusion isnt set in stone so if you have a better meaning that you've come up with id be glad to hear it.. just comment!

    General Commentok, so after he says "i'll leave you raining on your own parade" does he say "gung ho", or "come whore"? i've seen both on different lyrics sites. i don't have the cd booklet, and i know it says it in there

    General CommentThis song is my favorite song ever!
    Yeah, when he's singing without music, you can hear him say 'gung ho'
    I thought it meant he was saying you can act like that, but you'll end up hurting yourself.

    General Commentthis band sounds neat but every song is about a breaking up with his girlfriend and nothing about God. so much for the christian label

    General CommentI heard this song on the radio this morning, and I have to say I love it. In answer to xbrokensoundsx's question, I thought it was Fall Out Boy.
