"Let Down" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Amir Davidson, Ryan Christopher Shuck and Anthony Valcic....
And the tears fall like rain
Down my face again
Oh the words you wouldn't say
And the games you played
With my unfoolish heart
Oh I should have known this from the start

Oh the winter and spring
Going in hand in hand
Just like my love and pain
How the thought of you cuts deep within the vein
Oh this brand new skin stretched across scared terrain

I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road

All those years down the drain
Love was not enough when you want everything
What I gave to you and now the end must start
Oh I should have listened to my heart

'Cause I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road

Oh

I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my life again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want too be let down)
So I don't want to be let down
I don't want to live my lies again
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want to be let down)
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want to be let down)
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want to be let down)
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want to be let down)
Don't want to be lead down the same old road
(I don't want too be let down)
Be lead down the same old road

    My InterpretationI think it's about being scared to invest yourself into a new relationship after the end of an old one.
    Being scared to trust again and not wanting to go through the pain again. Once the trust is broken it's almost impossible to get it back. When the one you love the most messes up, they mess you up to xxx

    My OpinionI can't believe no one's commented on this song yet!! It's amazing; while it's hard to rank the tracks on "Out of Ashes" this one would have to be top 5 or 6. The melody is amazing and Chester gets deep with the lyrics. I think this one might be touching on Chester's present and his divorce and stuff. Who knows! It's an awesome song anyway :)

    General CommentI'm a die hard LP fan, and this song is amazing. Its obviously about his divorce. He said so himself. He wrote this during the divorce, and when he had to finally record it it was difficult because he couldn't connect back to those old emotions he had at the time, since he's currently in love with Talinda. But anyways this song is beautiful, reminds me of my ex. All of Chesters music is beautiful. He truly is gifted. Music video is coming soon :)

    General CommentI can relate to this song. it seems to like he is reflecting back on bad times after coming through them. going into complete self destruction this is sort of a reflection and he is telling how he does not want to go through that experience again
