You break me in two, tear me in two
You looking back, regretting every move
And I’m wearing thin, but they’re not wearing out

Time takes its toll and the distance is greater
Loss of control, we lost it

Take what you want from me
And I think I can’t feel anymore
Take what you want from me
And I can’t, I can’t think anymore

Held down so tight and tired
Hold on for your dearest life
I do as you say not as you’ve done (chanted)
Hold on for your dearest life
I do as you say not as you’ve done (chanted)
Hold on, hold on
Loss of control, we lost it

Take what you want from me
And I think I can’t feel anymore
Take what you want from me
And I can’t, I can’t think anymore

Dare I slow down and turn to paper
Folding end over end... overflow

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who he is having troubles with. she broke his heart and it is to the point where its so bad it basically cannot get any worse hence, "Take what you want from me
    And I think I can’t feel anymore" This song is amazing. Name Taken has such a unique sound that noone can match.
