treat me like a doormat wipe me out
take my will and grind it into dust
you're free to do what you are told
until the rights to you are sold

you take away - i give you all
you take away - i give you all
you take away - i give you all i got

mandelay

relinquish what it takes to heal
relinquish touch and taste and feel
relinquish all i ever known
relinquish all and turn to stone
relinquish what's inside my head
relinquish all i've ever read
relinquish all that i enjoy
forget that i am just a boy
deny myself the simplest pleasure
increase the suffocating pressure
objects in the mirror are closer than they appear

you take away i give you all
you take away i give you all
you take away i give you all i got

mandelay

you take away i give you all
you take away i give you all
you take away i give you all
you take away i give you all
