"Say It" as written by and Jenkins Stephan Douglas....
If I tell you what I really want
You'd just say shut up
You don't really wanna hear it, no
I try to be resolute
You reduce it down to cute
I tell you you're a coward
You say I'm a prostitute
When the mascara's dry
I know you've got something to hide

Can't you just say it, say it, say it,
Say it one time
Speak your mind
Ooooh say it, say it, say it
I would show up as someone else
What's it like when you're yourself

I'd tell you what I want
But I keep it kind of cryptic
I'm a zoetrope cyber on the tip of a trip
They tell you what you want
Tell you what I need
But I'd hate you if you miss it
I'd like to take a stranger's face in my hands
And kiss the taste of nowhere to hide
Yeah the taste of nowhere to hide

Oh, just say it, say it, say it, say it one time
Speak your mind
Ooh say it, say it, say it
Here comes the breakdown
It's a life where there's no one round

Say it, say it, say it
What's going on here
I swear you'll disappear if you don't
Say it, say it, say it
Take it down now to the core
Or speak no more

You're just a cheap lout
You're just an escape route
But you know, you know, you know
What makes you try again

Say what you mean
Say what you mean
Say what you mean

Say what you mean
Say what you mean
Say what you mean

    My OpinionIf this really is the last song on the last album, it's a fitting swan song. It's not Jenkins' best work, but it's maybe one of his most fitting for the time and place.

    Starts out all right, but when you get into K Flay's spoken word portion, it all connects perfectly and is a great tip of the cap to everyone who has followed the band from the start and not missed an album. Basically just Jenkins addressing 20'ish years of thoughts/doubts in about 2 and a half minutes.

    His struggles with writers block pre-Ursa Major, his relationship with Theron aka "that actress" (which inspired much of "Out of the Vein"), nods to the debut album (sleeping on a cot, eating tater tots), his uneasy relationship with critics who always unfairly accused him of peaking with the bands debut album and holding him up to impossible standards.

    Just a solid song from top to bottom. Again, not the greatest, but definitely appropriate and if it's the last song we get... it's fitting.
