You take my rights away
You take control
No stopping you
You take my rights away
I can take it (oh, oh)
See me let it go
You are in control
Suffer as we grow
As we say - we say we don't want to
Holding nothing
You take everything
You're worth anything at all
Anything at all
You take my rights away
You take control
No stopping you
You take my rights away
I can take it (oh, oh)
You take my rights away
You take control
No stopping you
You take my rights away
I can take it (oh, oh)
You define me
With your identity
Lose my life in you
I can take - I'll take what it costs me
You take my rights away
You take control
No stopping you
You take my rights away
I can take it (oh, oh)
You take my rights away
You take control
No stopping you
You take my rights away
I can take it (oh, oh)

    My Interpretation"John Cooper: "You Take My Rights Away was an interesting song because there's lots of different facets to the idea. One of them is, you know, that it is freeing when, I believe, you find God and all of a sudden you find purpose in life, when you know, you've never had purpose in life; it's everything. But the revelation that I felt I had when I wrote that song was that for so many years growing up in church, I had been told over and over and over basically that God wants me to be happy, and God wants this... and all of a sudden I just kind of realized, you know what? God's ultimate agenda for my life is not that I'm happy, it's that I do what He tells me to do. And I am happy being a Christian, it's kind of like.... it's a result of being a Christian as happiness, but I think true joy comes when you know that you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. So that's what You Take My Rights Away is, it's a bit of a radical concept. I heard someone else talk about it, is where I got it from, so I didn't make it up, haha.""
