"Let Me Out" as written by Philip Adam Taylor, Carl Michael Messina, Jacob Matthew Stutevoss and William Matthew Hershey....
I found some peace today, I grit my teeth
And swallow all of my pain
And selfish pride, I used to hide behind

Let me out let me out I'm singing
Let me out let me out I'm singing
I'm a liar and cheat in prison
Accused of telling the truth

Flames of pain stained paint my eyes
Child I've lost this face won't lie
Time burns my souls decay gray
Sifting through the smoke and lies
Swimming exhale love that's died
The first and last ain't ever the same
So I'll keep on singing this
I don't care if your right or if I'm always wrong
Just want to sing my song before this whole world

Let me out let me out I'm singing
Let me out let me out I'm singing
I'm a liar and a cheat in prison
Accused of telling the truth

Now and forever I stand to sever all ties and connections
To recollections of pain and fear
Family society authority and ever peer
Swallowing tears line my stomach
I'm getting freer every second corroding and exploding
All these corporate deceptions I'm out

Mental prison bars block our minds
Youths truth sold and televised
I never bought it and I won't play your game's for fame
Are we just rats in a pipers tune soothed
Scrappin' for cheese in a maze made to loose
I know I'm not and I won't eat your food, subdued
I don't care if your right or if I'm always wrong
Just want to sing my song before this whole world's
Gone

Let me out let me out I'm singing
Let me out let me out I'm singing
I'm a liar and a cheat in prison
Accused of telling the truth

I'm out

    "Are we all just rats in a maze made to lose, no I'm not..."

    Awesome song, love the band. I like his voice...don't know, it's kinda got a Kurt Cobain-esque raspy scream in it.

    General CommentFuture Leaders of the World, and their album's LVL IV =P. Just to let you know...

    Some lyrical corrections (always got 'em, it seems, and half the time I'm wrong, so please mention it if so)

    Flames of pain stained paint my eyes
    Child I've lost this face won't lie
    Time burns my souls decay gray
    Sifting through the smoke and lies
    Swimming exhale love that's died

    Family, society, authority and every peer
    Swallowing tears lining my stomach
    I'm getting freer every second corroding and exploding
    All these corporate deceptions and I'm out

    Mental prison bars block our minds
    Youth's truth sold and televised
    I never bought it and I won't play your games, for fame
    Are we just rats in a pipers tune
    Scrappin' for cheese in a maze made to lose
    I know I'm not and I won't eat your food, subdued
    I don't care if your right and if I'm always wrong
    Just wanna sing my song before this whole world's
    Gone...

    Love the band, I wish I could've seen their whole set live... I missed it, got to the venue for the last song and a half (damn doors opening early...). Love the lyrics, wish someone in the band could clarify things for us.
