Someone in Control is the third studio album by American rock band Trapt, released on September 13, 2005 by Warner Bros. Records. The album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200 chart, with approximatively 61,400 copies sold.[4] Three singles were released: "Stand Up", "Waiting", and "Disconnected (Out of Touch)". Someone in Control was co-produced by Trapt and Don Gilmore. The lyrics were written by Chris Brown, music written by Trapt. As of April 2006, the album has sold 263,000 copies. Despite the anticipation before the release, the album failed to catch the success of their debut album, possibly due to the lack of a hit single. Following the disappointing sales of the album, Trapt was asked to leave from Warner Bros. Records.
