"Guts" as written by Alexander William Gaskarth and Michael Joseph Green....
Shooting for the stars
Desperately reaching
For something in the dark
Pictures of memories

Buried in my heart
Lie awake and dream of
The endless possibilities
Catch my breath and go for it

Take apart
Everything that's
Holding me down
Make a point
To pick a new direction
To make a new connection

Is this what it feels like?
Finding out
That I've got the guts
To say anything
Feels like
Breaking out
When I can
Give up my reputation
Finally,
I can see
Honestly, I've got the guts
To say anything

Bold enough to fall
Flat on my face
But I walk as they crawl
Slowing down
It's just a waste of
Time to let go
Tapping my fingers
To the rhythm of a metronome
Counting opportunities

Take apart
The gravity
That's holding me down
Make a point
To find a resolution
To be my own solution

Is this what it feels like?
Finding out
That I've got the guts
To say anything
Feels like
Breaking out
When I can
Give up my reputation
Finally,
I can see
Honestly, I've got the guts
To say anything

Go down
Let me go
Let me go
Down alone
Let me go
Down
Just let me go
Down

If I'm gonna go down
Then just let me go
Let me go, down
Let me go, down
Just let me go
Let me go
(Go, go, go, go,
Go, go, go, go)

It feels like
Finding out
That I've got the guts
To say anything
Feels like
Breaking out
When I can
Give up my reputation

Finally,
I can see
Honestly, I've got the guts
To say anything
Finally,
I can see
Honestly, I've got the guts
To say anything

    Song MeaningHe used to think about the possibilities of what would happen if he said what he felt but now he wants to give up keeping all his feelings inside and let them all out. When he finally does, he feels relieved that he finally has the guts to say what he's been dying to say and that he can stop worrying about those 'possibilities' he used to wonder about.

    General CommentI read an interview with Alex and Jack they talked about this song. They both said (in one way or another) that the song was them finding out that it was there music and they could make it how ever they wanted. Basically it's about them realizing they don't have to please anyone and they can say what the want. The line "LET ME GO DOWN ALONE" (I think) refers to them writing songs/lyrics that could be considered controversial and they'll take the fall for it, they want the credit. Good or bad.
