"Take It Out On Me" as written by Jason James, Michael Kieron Paget, Michael David Thomas, Matthew Tuck and Benji Webbe....
Oh yeah
I'm always thinking of you and all the things that you do
Self-centered satisfaction no more will I run from you
Dysfunction family values I'll die but i will not fear
Stop talking words of wisdom you fool I'm standing right here

The world is on your shoulders
The weight it's crushing me
Now we're all getting older
Take it out, take it out, take it out, take it out
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Vent your frustration on me

I feel so much destruction in everything that you do
Anger is creeping in me watch i don't explode on you
My rage it comes so quickly one spark and will ignite
Self-harming mutilation cuts deep but the pain feels so right

The world is on your shoulders
The weight it's crushing me
Now we're all getting older
Take it out, take it out, take it out, take it out
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Vent your frustration on me

This fire burns inside
Turning things inside
There's no where left to hide
This fire burns inside
This fire burns inside
This rage can't be denied

The world is on your shoulders
The weight it's crushing me
Now we're all getting older
Take it out, take it out, take it out, take it out
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Take it out on me, take it out on me
Vent your frustration on me

Take it out

    General CommentI think it's about someone who has a girlfriend that cuts herself and is becoming more and more stresses out because she takes it out on him and blames him, and all he does is try to help her.

    General CommentPersonally, I find that the lyrics describe a relationship between family members, along the lines of a father-son, daughter-mother, or even father-daughter / mother-son. Many people have anger management problems, and many parents take it out on their kids.

    "The world is on your shoulders
    The weight, it's crushing me
    Now we're all getting older"

    Grown-ups complain about their age a lot, and I know a few of my friend's parents treat their kids like a serious burden.

    "I feel so much destruction in everything that you do
    Anger is creeping in me, watch I don't explode on you
    My rage it comes so quickly one spark and I will ignite
    Self-harming mutilation cuts deep but the pain feels so right"

    I can personally relate to this, as well. Some messed up family times, let me tell you. Anyways, awesome song, awesome album.

    General Commenti beg to differ with you. Quite sorry but this is an okay song. I would have to say the top 3 songs on this album are "Deliver Us from Evil", "Scream Aim Fire", and "Waking the Demon".
    Waking the demon tho is by far the best metal production on this album.

    General CommentFuck xD
    I don't have any favs of the album 'cause it's just too great
    This song is about standing and not being afraid to die. Somebody made you angry and you are unable to deny.In short, it's about standing against the one you hate.

    General Commenti think that the someone is having issues and they take it out on him. hence "take it out on me" there is alot of stress on that person and he wants them to release their stress on him. thats jus what i see

    General CommentI more agree with the Parent idea for this song, i think it's more of a father-son then anything else though, in most parental abuse relationships it's the father, i think the song is about the son finally getting tired of his father's abuse of him. The son want's the father to go after him again so that he can show how he's grown and that now he's strong enough to stop his father, he wants to show his father that he will no longer let him act like he has.

    General CommentThis song does seem more like a parent-child abuse type thing. the parent wouldnt take it out unless they were older. the lines "This fre burns inside, theres no where left to hide, this rage can't be denied..." seems like the child finally has enough and decides to fight back.
