"Control" as written by Agustin Gilberto Cerezo Garza, Joaquin Ulises Lozano Aguirre, Carlos Alberto Chairez Garcia, Juan Omar Gongora Rangel, Cesar Pliego Villarreal, John King, Frank Rodriguez and Dante Spinetta....
Take control of the atmosphere
Take me far away from here
There is no better loss than to lose myself in you
In a parachute to glide, I am captive in your sky
Surrender has somehow become so beautiful

Take control of the atmosphere
Take control of the atmosphere
You can take my world you can fill the air
Take control, take control

It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender
It's such a beautiful surrender

Move me up through the darkest clouds
Till I've lost in the sun every shadow of doubt
There is no better find than to find myself with you
In a fog you are all I see
I'm inviting you closer with each time I breathe
Surrender has somehow become so beautiful

Take control of the atmosphere
Take control of the atmosphere
There is no reason I should breathe unless you're in the air
Take control

Its such a beautiful surrender
Its such a beautiful surrender
And I'm calling out
Would you take control
And I'm calling out

    General Commentgplpark92.... I've been refering to this site for over a year now but never decided to register until I read your ignorant comment. You've basically insulted the band by comparing them to that garbage. Maybe not so much on Keane but a comparison to LP downright blows my mind. They have nothing in common whatsoever.

    General CommentThe guy from MuteMath said this about Control:
    "This is my 4 minute sprint to get as far away as I can from everything that compels me to maintain control. My very nature wants me to play life as though it's a chess match against circumstances. Always thinking 20 moves ahead can be exhausting. This song is nothing short of an urgent prayer to find rest."

    General CommentThis such an awesome song, I'm suprised that it only has one comment..

    It's hard to disagree with what Paul said, so I wont, but seeing them play this live shows how much he really does want to lose control.

    General CommentAhh this is the most amazing song like ever - esecially now that ive read those comments too - so basically the Mute Math guy just wants to surrender everything to God and give Him the controls - that is totally want we all need to be doing - that way God can work through us and use us to the full pertentual God wants us to be. Soo amazing!! Mute Math are soo awesome - very awesomer (i no thats not a work but ay!) live!!!

    General CommentI think the song is about stop questioning God and just believe in Him/Her without any question. Which in the case of the song, it brings true happiness to those who do.
    -----
    gplpark92: It's cool if you don't like Mute Math, but don't come posting about it. I would probably think the bands you like really suck or whatever, if I knew what they were, but I don't go criticizing this and that about bands I don't like.

    General CommentI just think he's giving control to God and surrendering his life to Him. To be with God is to be "in a parachute to glide."

    General CommentI like how it says "take control of the atmoshpere" because, ironically enough, Jesus will infact, literally take control of the atmosphere some day. It will be beautiful beyond words. Oh and just to add - This song is even cooler if you got to be a part of the music video ... like I was :)
