"Sound Off" as written by and Ryan D./budden Montgomery....
Running in place
Feeling like you're losing your faith
Feeling like you're fading away
Without a voice to break the chain
Don't you get played
Don't you let them hand you you're fate
Don't you know the world is you're stage
So what you got to say

Let me hear you sound off
Let them know how you feel
If the anger inside is real
Long before the bridges are burned
The powers to be are going to hear your words
Have you been heard
Have you been walking around this world misunderstood
Have you been heard
You got to take back what you know is yours
Let me hear you sound off

Searching for truth
You know when someone's lying to you
We all know how it feels to be used
Do they take us all for fools
They break they're own rules
The hypocrites are leading us through
Do what they say and nod as they do
Or do we have a right to choose

Let me hear you sound off
Let them know how you feel
If the anger inside is real
Long before the bridges are burned
The powers to be are going to hear your words
Have you been heard
Have you been walking around this world misunderstood
Have you been heard
You got to take back what you know is yours
Let me hear you sound off

I hope you get the message loud and clear
We will never disappear
We will ask the questions you fear
Its the only thing you'll hear

Sound off
Let them know how you feel
If the anger inside is real
Long before the bridges are burned
The powers to be are going to hear your words
Have you been heard
Have you been walking around this world misunderstood
Have you been heard
You got to take back what you know is yours
Let me hear you sound off

    General CommentI cannot believe not one single person as taken the time to comment on this song. Holy shit.

    I read somewhere that this sounded a lot like Breaking Benjamin, and thinking about it, the opening really does. I love both bands, so it's all good.

    I must say that I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it. Seriously, Trapt is amazing. This si a very powerful song. To me he is talking about all those there have been trying to make everyone else happy while they have been suffering because they feel as though they can't be who that want to be. He's telling them to take a stand and do what they need to do to make themselves happy. That they need to stop trying to please everyone else.

    Seriously a powerful song. They never fail to amaze me.

    General CommentI disagree with u ZombieKitten. This song is clearly a big fuck you to the leaders.. Standing up and fighting for what you believe in even though governments try to push you down.. Its about voicing what you feel and making your own choices not being lead blind my hypocrites...

    General Commenti won't disagree with you marinas, i also won't disagree with you aristuma21, i believe that this song could go either way.

    either way, this song is very powerful and extremely amazing.

    Lyric CorrectionBTW, I think the lyric is not:

    "Do what they say and nod as they do"

    I'm pretty sure it's:

    "Do as they say and not as they do"

    It sounds closer and works better with the theme of the song.
