"Let Me Be Him" as written by and Joseph/taylor Goddard....
I can see
Let me be

I can see
Let me Be

All this freedom we get, oh
It's not all its cracked up to be

(I can see)
(Let me be)

Only foes and rejects, oh
They are all we can see

(I can see)
(Let me be)

Oh it's over me, yet
We are made reality

(I can see)
(Let me be)

Only foes and rejects, oh
They are all we can see

(I can see)
(Let me be)

Oh, Let me be him, be him, be him
Oh, Let me be him
Oh, Let me be him

(oh oh, heyyy oh oh)

Let me be him
My soul, my love,
Is running away with me
And I won't leave it all to you

Let me be him

Work hard, play hard at work
Lend me your ideas
But not too fully formed
So we can't be ignored

Broken into pieces,
When he sang to me

(I can see)

Call my name, remember
What you mean to me

Let me be him, be him, be him
Oh, let me be him
Oh, let me be him

Let me be him
My soul, my love
Is running away with me
And I won't leave it all to you

Let me be him
My soul, my love
Is running away with me
And I won't leave it all to you

Let me be him
My soul, my love,
Is running away with me
And I won't leave it all to you

All this sense in me,
It's gonna be the death of me

Dying every evening,
Without sleep happening to me

With all this sense in me,
You are really spoiling me

Rotten without reason,
Without sense, where would I be

Starting with your treason,
You forgot to burn a tree

All this sense in me,
It's gonna be the death of me

    Song MeaningAlexis Taylor, in an interview with Pitchfork:
    "Actually, with this album, I felt a freedom to use words without them having to have a logical meaning at all. That was partly inspired by listening to Joe's demo of the track 'Let Me Be Him' and really liking the sound of all the words, and wondering what the song was about. I asked Joe, and he said it was more like a phonetic thing, and then making out what those words were after. That made sense to me."
