Father,
you know where I have been and
you know what I have done
they say that you see everything
so you know I never hurt no one
What I have stolen won't be missed
By those who had so much, so long
We'll soon be laughing about this
They will never notice it is gone
I could bend the universe
It I can only get there first
There are some foolish fresh laid plans
My fate is firmly in your hands

If you must take me
I can not go peacefully
I left someone waiting for me
I left things terribly..

They say man is just your seed
Spilled out on the thirsty earth
A simple servant of your needs
from the moment of our birth
Tell me am I not your seed?
Tell me am I not your son?
Tell me have you just forgotten
All those years of devotion

Take
If you must take me
I can not go peacefully
I left someone waiting for me
I left things so terribly...
Undone

    My InterpretationTo me, he's praying to god to let him stay how he is so he can finish something with "someone waiting for him". Perhaps the thing he had stolen he was being punished for, and he needed to stay behind and watch over his "someone."

    General CommentIt is a personal confession of someone who wants to live even despite his mistakes, and he tries to make himself one with god even though he is only human. and because he is human, and this is a devotchka theme in a lot of their songs, he has fallen in love but seems to have left some unfinished business with them, perhaps their love was unreconciled and in a lot of other songs, particularily "you love me", "queen of the surface streets", "how it ends" they display that unfinished love business.
