You desecrate your temple with anger
A hollow body fueled by hate
(Hollow)
I feel no better
(Anger)
Don't look for answers
(Hatred)
Blown away there was never a reason why

It's sick either way
It's sick either way
It's sick either way you look at it so

Take what you want and leave a hole inside
Take everything you need to keep you satisfied
Break everything you see then try to hide
Take it all but you're never taking me alive

Now you have used my weakness against me
A Trojan Horse already through the gate
(Weakness)
I spiral down into the
(Excuses)
Search for excuses
(Hatred)
It's time to take an honest look inside

It's sick either way
It's sick either way
It's sick either way you look at it so

Take what you want and leave a hole inside
Take everything you need to keep you satisfied
Break everything you see then try to hide
Take it all but you're never taking me alive

(Solo)

Take what you want and leave a hole inside
Take everything you need to keep you satisfied
Break everything you see then try to hide
Take it all but you're never taking me alive
Alive
Alive
Alive

    General CommentThis song has to be about alimony/divorce and/or child support. I think the Trojan Horse lyric is a double entendre, and even though I like the sound of Dark New Day, the story on the album seems to be that of a trailer park family. Just look at "Brother." They even mention the happiness of the trailer park. I guess it's not bad, just a little unexpected.

    General Commentthe guy who commented about hitler .. it makes sense - very interesting. :)

    i have to agree with ladiablo though, i personally think it's about rape also.

    Take what you want and leave a hole inside
    Take everything you need to keep you satisfied
    Break everything you see then try to hide
    (rapists are obviously selfish, they need to take what they wants to keep himself satisfied, when they get their perks they'll go and hide)

    then the trojan horse line .. use your imagination.
