"Take It Away" as written by and Robert C./steineckert Mccracken....
I'm lying to myself
And this dagger is my excuse
I'm a pawn
I should have paid up
And I left an hour late
I was laid up

I must abuse myself
I'm against all that I've made up
Set in stone the sun will come
And I hate light
You know I hate light
To me it looks so pretty burning

Burn the sun
Burn the light
Take take take take take take it away
Take my hand
Take my life
Take take take take take take it away

I must have caught something
In the heat of all these dances
I'm a worm with no more chances
And I've lost all doubt
In a chemical romance

I can't stop itching
Over thoughts of tarnished hope
Kinda funny
Lonely feeling
I'm not in love
You know it's not love
Don't make it look so pretty burning

Burn the sun
Burn the light
Take take take take take take it away
Take my hand
Take my life
Take take take take take take it away

Burn the sun
Burn the light
Take take take take take take it away
Take my hand
Take my life
Take take take take take take it away

Brothers and sisters
I'm right here with you
Cause everyone's got one
A story to to kill me
I'm so apathetic in my resentment
Living, loving, knowing not

Take my hand(x8)
Take my life
Take my heart take my mind
Take my life take my life

Burn the sun burn the light
Take take take take take take it away
Take my hand take my life
Take take take take take take it away
Burn the sun burn the light
Take take take take take take it away
Take my hand take my life
Take my life
Take my life

    General CommentIt's about the fact that he hates seeing things for what they truly are. "I hate light...you know I hate light" he hates being able to see clearly...he'd rather be fucked off Crystal Meth.

    The entire "Don't make it look so pretty burning" thing is basically him saying "Don't make things look good when it's really horrible"
    Decent song...the new album sounds promising

    General Commentok is it me or did someone notice he wore make up in the video around his eyes like the singer from My Chemical Romance, and even said something about losing all doubt in a chemical romance....

    General CommentI agree it to be about how he's become dark and he's gotten used to it, so he despises the light. He claims that why should it be something that great when it burns and blinds you?

    Sometimes after you've been in the dark basement for so long, you grow to like it.

    I think this album is awesome, but it hasn't grown on me totally yet. But their debut took a bit to grow on me and "In Love and Death" seems to have a similar hook so I think I'll be into it before long. They are just no doubt something just fresh and talented. Hard to place a finger on them, which I like.

    I don't understand how I read some reviews about how people were upset because this album got poppy and the screaming went away. Um.... I totally disagree. I believe like a lot of people's sophomore albums (not to discount their uniqueness) that they've just grown in all directions.

    I can pick out a song that is harder IMO then any of their songs in the debut (Sound Effects and Overdramatics) and the ballad right after that is softer then any song on the debut. And yes the poppish songs sound poppier, the rest of the styles are more dramatic as well.

    I'd even venture to say that this album is not that far different from their first. Definitely so when comparing this with some other bands. Like Tool for example... no album is the same.
